    rev. 11/24/18

    Matches are scheduled every Thursday except Thanksgiving , Christmas Eve/Day, New Years Eve/Day and July 4th. We will not Shoot the week of the Triple Crown (May 21-May26)
    We will shoot Tue.. Nov 26 instead of Thanksgiving Day.

    Match start time: 5:30PM or before if a relay is ready

    Rifles Chambered 22 Long Rifle Only

    Events 1-8 will be shot at 100 Feet.

    Events 1-8, each participant will shoot two (2) matches before leaving assigned bench.

    Match A will be targets 1A-5A (Left Side)
    Match B will be targets 1B-5B (Right Side)

    Scoring will be best edge except for the X. To receive an X , NO PART of the X can remain.

    Each Side will be scored individually for a maximum score of 50 points and 5X per side. The exception to this rule will be Open Class with a Maximum of 50 points per side and no X's.

    Ties will be resolved by using the first miss on the opposite Target. For Example: Match A tie winner will be determined by targets 1B-5B./ In the event ties cannot be resolved in this manner the match will revert to the targets 1A-5A. (First Miss, X's included. If the Match still cannot be resolved the match purse will be divided evenly between the winners. Total scores will not be used to resolve ties.

    A shooter should notify the scorer as soon as possible of any obvious scoring or math errors. These will be corrected immediately. A shooter may protest the scoring of his or any other shooter's target. After accepting a $1.00 protest fee (per bull) the scorer will appoint 3 non-involved shooters to referee the protest. The majority decision of the referees will be the final decision. If the decision is in favor of the protester then the $1.00 fee will be returned to the protester. Results are final 15 Minutes after the posting of winners and no protests are allowed after the results are final.
