LEAGUE SCORING:
A competitor's highest 10 scores will be used to determine league standings. Awards will be given to the high scorer in the Master, AAA, AA, and B classes in both Smallbore Rifle and Smallbore Hunting Rifle. Spotters are strongly encouraged, as a competitor should not score his own card. Practice scores may be shot, if it will not displace a competitor from the line who is shooting for record. All record scorecards must be turned in to the R.O. upon completion of the match.

NOTE: This is a lot more fun and relaxed than the formal rules make it sound. Come and try it!
