<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>1.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Scorecards will be available at the entrance of the range.&nbsp;&nbsp;<BR>Shooters must pick up scorecards at the beginning of each round. The final scorecards must be turned in to the range official once&nbsp;the shooter has completed their round.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>2.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All information on each scorecard must be accurate with all infomation completely and properly filled in.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>3.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; No changes may be made to score cards after scorekeeper and shooter has signed the scorecards.&nbsp; If a shooter changes his scorecard after they have been signed by the scorekeeper the shooter will receive a&nbsp;score of zero (0) for that tournament.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>4.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Each group will designate two (2) members of their group as Scorers and Scorekeepers.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>5.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Scorers will judge and score each arrow and call out the results,&nbsp;which will be recorded on the respective shooters scorecard by each scorekeeper.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>6.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Each scorekeeper will maintain one (1) card for each shooter,&nbsp;and be responsible for recording each arrow.&nbsp; Scorekeepers will record the total score at the end of the round.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>7.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Completed scorecards must be reviewed and signed as correct by the scorekeeper.&nbsp;&nbsp;All scorecards are to be retained by the scorekeepers and, as a group,&nbsp;will be turned into the range official.&nbsp; Each shooting group must turn in&nbsp;their cards together except when a shooter is permitted to make-up targets due to an equipment failure, breakdown, or other approved leave.&nbsp;&nbsp;Those cards will be given to the range official for disposition.&nbsp;Any individual or group that does not turn in their score cards before leaving the range will receive a score of zero (0) for that day.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>8.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All scores recorded by range official are confidential until the end of&nbsp;the tournament, and can only be reviewed after the competition is over.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>9.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All arrows must remain in the target until all arrows are scored.&nbsp; The arrow shaft must touch any portion of the line to be scored for&nbsp;the higher value.&nbsp; The status of any doubtful arrows must be determined before drawing any arrow from the target and such arrows may not be touched&nbsp;until a judgment has been made.&nbsp; If both scorers are in agreement, the score will stand.&nbsp; Should the scorers be unable to reach an agreement the scorekeepers will alternate the responsibility of making the final determination before any arrows are removed.&nbsp; Groups will be responsible&nbsp; for calling their own arrows.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>10.&nbsp; Arrows passing through the face, but still in the target will be pushed back and scored.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>11.&nbsp; Any arrow deflected&nbsp; (making contact, but still proceeding toward the target)&nbsp;by an arrow already in the target will be scored as it lies.</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>12.&nbsp; Any arrow embedded (a Robin Hood) in the nock of another arrow will be scored&nbsp;the same as the arrow it stuck.&nbsp; (This generally applies to hollow aluminum arrows.)</DIV>

<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>

<DIV>13.&nbsp; Any arrow rebounded (a Robin Hood which strikes and damages another arrow and does not proceed toward the target, but bounces back) will be scored the same as the arrow it struck, provided the damaged arrow can be identified. (This generally applies to carbon and small diameter arrows.)</DIV>
