Hi FT shooters
A number of rules have been altered or tweaked. Note that these rule changes are effective immediately.
Changes we have made:
New document layout. We will be reformatting the Code of Conduct and Constitution to follow this layout.
General clean-up (minor things like changing O to 0, grammar, etc)
Definitions moved to the beginning of the document.
1.4 Bipods specified as allowed accessories for U10 SFT shooters.
2.2 A maximum angle of 30 degrees (vertical plane) from the shooting line is introduced for target positions. The 5 degrees specified is now only applicable to the horizontal plane.
2.4 Kneelers are specifically allowed to be shot from the standing position.
5.5 SFT scoring is specified.
5.11 Unscored targets on score cards are treated as misses.
5.12 Shoot-offs can start on kneelers or standers if by unanimous consent.
5.14 Penalty option d) removes the "freestyle only" limitation.
5.14 Disqualification option b) is changed to remove intentionally shooting a target from the wrong position.
6.5 The word "minimum" is removed from the standard of difficulty.
6.6 The word "minimum" is removed from the standard of difficulty.
7.1 shouldn't have been numbered. All numbering moves up by 1 count.
7.2 (was 7.3) "top 100 averages" changed to "top 100 shooters".
7.4 (was 7.5) the second bullet changes to remove the out-of-province option.
Speed tables are included and have been expanded. There's a speed table for both FT (12fpe, blue) and SFT (18fpe, orange.)
