At-Large Team Match: A two-person team match will be held at the conclusion of the individual match. Team scores are calculated by adding the individual scores. The course of fire is the reverse Dewar.
Time: 5-minute Pre-Preparation Time before first stages or a 2-minute Pre-Preparation Time before second stages. These are followed by 3-minute Preparation periods (Rule 6.4.3). There will be 20-minutes for each 20-shot stage.
Sighting Shots: Competitors may fire unlimited sighting shots before and/or during record firing (Rule 6.4.3).
Score Challenges: After scores are posted on the Official Bulletin Board, a 30-minute scoring challenge period will be provided when competitors and coaches have an opportunity to see their scored paper targets and protest any shot values, or scores, they believe were scored, recorded, or added incorrectly. The purpose of scoring challenges is to correct errors, not to rescore shots that have already been scored with an approved means of scoring (Rule 8.1.2). Shot value protests may only be made on shots whose values were decided without using a scoring gauge or scoring template (Rule 8.2.1). Shots whose values were decided with a scoring gauge or template cannot be challenged, unless there is a recording, tabulation, or other obvious error (Rule 8.2.2). A $3.00 challenge fee will be assessed for each challenge. The fee will be returned if the challenge is upheld.
Ties: Ties are broken in favor of the competitor with the highest number of inner tens (Rule 8.5.1).
Coaching: Coaching or assisting a competitor during an individual event is not permitted (Rule 6.5).
Camping: The range has adequate space for camping, with electric hookup. There are washrooms with flush toilets and showers. Advance notice is required to camp at the range. Donations are welcome.
Season 6400: The aggregate of the April 1600, June 3200, and October 1600 will be named range champion.
