RULES

1. N.S.R.A. rules and regulations will apply except for ties. These will be decided on the last 100-yard card working backward, the bottom diagram being considered as the last card. In the event that scores remain tied, the 50m cards will be taken into account working back from the bottom pair of diagrams on the second card. The range committee will settle any disputes and their decision will be final.

2. Recorded Scores. It is the responsibility of the competitor to ensure their scores are correctly recorded on the exhibited lists. A score may be challenged on a deposit of £5.00 that will be returned if the challenge is upheld. The Association will not enter into any correspondence regarding missing or disputed scores after the close of the meeting.

3. The procedure for dealing with disciplinary matters is fully documented within the SSBSA Rifle & Airgun Competition Rules, a copy of which is available upon request.

4. Averages should be calculated from the best 5 of the last 6 officially scored cards. Competitors will be allocated to each class in accordance with averages submitted, except for previous year’s winners who will be allocated a higher class.

5. The Range Committee reserves the right to reclassify any competitor whose declared average appears to be incorrect.

6. All competitors must sign the range register and visitors must sign the competition clubroom register available on the day.

7. All targets and backing cards, marked with your competitor number, will be found at the rear of the firing points ten minutes before your squadding time. Bulldog clips are required.
