Official Time Eastern Daylight Savings Time. The Range Director will keep the Official Match Time. Important Notice All competitors are responsible to be knowledgeable of all rules, regulations and contents of this program (NRA Rule 18.15). Everyone involved in these National Matches must understand that in accordance with NRA Rule 11.1 and 11.4, the NRA Match and Range Directors have complete authority to make any last minute changes they deem necessary in order to ensure that the competitions are run smoothly and safely. This may include changes in relay and squadding schedules and cancellations of firing altogether. Any such changes will be relayed to the competitors via announcements and/or Match Director Bulletins. Awards Bulletin Preliminary Awards Bulletins will be posted in Building 950. An Official Bulletin will be mailed only to competitors who specifically request a copy. This request should be made at the NRA Statistical Office upon your arrival at Camp Perry, or by email to nrachamps@cros.net before August 11, 2013. An Official Copy of the final results will be available online after the conclusion of the matches at www.nrahq.org/compete/champ3.asp. Awards Office Location The NRA Awards Office is located in Building 950. Awards Office Procedures Upon receipt of the Awards Bulletins, the Awards Office will post the number of the match(s) on the Bulletin Board in the Awards Office. Competitors and Team Captains should pick up their awards as they become available. NO AWARDS WILL BE MAILED, INCLUDING AWARDS POINTS, VISA GIFT CARDS, AND/OR DONATED MERCHANDISE. ALL AWARDS MUST BE PICKED UP FROM THE AWARDS OFFICE BEFORE DEPARTING CAMP PERRY. Monetary Awards The National Rifle Association continually strives to achieve full compliance with all tax laws and regulations. In this regard, the Financial Services Division conducts an ongoing review of all NRA-sponsored competitions, including but not limited to the National Matches at Camp Perry, the NRA Action Pistol Championship (Bianchi Cup), the Smallbore Metric Championship, and Silhouette Championships, where a tax event might occur. A tax event occurs when a competitor wins a total amount of at least $600 in cash and/or merchandise prizes (excluding plaques and trophies) in all the above events combined. Because the NRA is unable to determine who might win a total of $600 or more, every competitor is required to complete a form W-9. At the end of the year, W-9’s are reviewed and an IRS Form 1099-Misc is issued to all competitors whose total winnings are at least $600. The W-9 forms for competitors whose total winnings do not exceed $599 are securely destroyed. Please feel free to contact Portia Padilla at 703267-1652 if you have any questions in regard to this matter. Thank you for your cooperation. Firearms Awards Policy Effective immediately, it is the policy of the National Matches not to award firearms to junior competitors that are not of legal age to receive the firearm directly from the FFL holder. Firearms will also no longer be awarded to junior teams where the Team Captain is not of legal age to accept the firearm directly from the FFL holder. The NRA apologizes for any inconvenience that this might cause. 12


Competitor Packets NOTE: All competitors must have gone thru Welcome Center/In-processing before receiving their competitor packet. Proof of in-processing will be required before packet is issued. 1. A packet containing the necessary identification cards, squadding tickets, score cards, rule book, and other information will be prepared for registered competitors. Those listed, as non-firing participants of the National Matches will be issued a packet upon request. 2. A 2013 year tab will be included in all NRA packets. Any competitor who is a first time competitor and wishes to have a National Matches brassard should request one when the competitor packet is picked up. Additional brassards may be purchased at $10.00 each. 3. Competitor packets will be available for pickup at the NRA Entry Office, Building 950, beginning at the time and date stated below: (No packets will be distributed before the time and date specified).

NRA championship scorecards are provided in sets, as a booklet. If the cards are removed one by one, there should be no incorrect scorecards used, as the booklet is set up in the order in which the matches are fired. 3. All scorecards which are used in the matches and all team cards MUST BE labeled with self-adhesive labels (supplied in each competitor’s packet). Make certain that you place your current year’s labels on your scorecards before you go to the range. Unidentifiable scores will not be used. DO NOT use felt-tip pens to fill out scorecards. 4. All scorecards must be turned in to a line official within 10 minutes of completion of firing a match. Failure to do so may disallow that score for awards. 5. Failure to use the proper scorecard will result in a score of “0”. NOTE: Competitors who appear at the firing line without scorecards will be required to purchase white duplicate scorecards at a cost of $5 per scorecard. It is the competitor’s responsibility to have the correct change. 6. When signing scorecards, the competitors must remember they are signing for the value of each shot indicated on the card. Each competitor is responsible for their own scorecard. Competitors are reminded that High Power Rule 14.3 requires the Scorer to turn in the scorecard, as outlined above, when it is completed. Competitors should supervise this action. Electronic Devices Competitors are reminded that Rule 3.22 prohibits sound producing or communication devices forward of the ready line including the pits. This also means pagers, cell phones, audible timing devices or any other soundproducing device (except hearing aids.)

All three locations will house the same score printouts for competitors’ review and challenge period. 3. Statistical Office Challenges (see Rules 16.1 and 16.4) must be based on the scores posted on the computer printouts at one of the three results centers, and made prior to the expiration of the challenge period posted for each match and aggregate. A competitor who fails to challenge within this time period forfeits the right to challenge. 4. Competitors should check the scores posted in either of the three results centers to verify. Any errors must be reported to the Stat Office prior to closing of the match challenge period. 5. There will also be Challenge Boxes located at each results center for challenge periods that extend past normal Stat Office business hours. These challenge cards will be picked up each morning by 9:00 a.m. when a challenge period extends past normal business hours for the Stat Office. Challenges 1. Each competitor should check the competitor scores as they are posted on the computer printout in one of three results centers. Unless otherwise noted, scores posted are preliminary and do not necessarily reflect the final standings and/or awards won. If you feel your score, class, or category are not correct, it is your responsibility (team captain for team matches) to report this to the Stat Office prior to the close of the posted challenge period for that match. (See Rule 18.13). 2. Go to the Challenge Window in Building 950, the Statistical Office. Explain the discrepancy. The Challenge will be processed and corrections made if warranted. 3. If the challenge period extends overnight after normal business hours of the Stat Office, there are Challenge Boxes located at each of the three Results Centers to write up your challenge, place in the Challenge Box. 4. It is the competitor’s responsibility to make certain that the scores posted are correct. Failure to check scores within the time limit will result in the penalty of losing the privilege of any further challenge. It is the Statistical Office’s responsibility to correct scores prior to the end of the final challenge period. After the final challenge period, the competitor accepts the responsibility for scores posted. Procedures for Making Range Challenges If the competitor disagrees with a shot value announced by the Scorer or displayed value of the shot, the competitor may challenge the score. Rule 16.1 must be used. Challenge Period 1. All challenges must be made on the range before the end of the challenge period. (Rule 16.1) 2. Corrections to Preliminary Bulletins will be made at the Stat Office at the Challenge Window within the time period noted. (Rule 11.6.3) 3. Scores posted after 6 p.m. will have a challenge period closing at 9 a.m. the following day. All scores for each match will be posted at one time, not by relay.

Protests All protests must be in accordance with applicable NRA Rules. If, after following the procedure specified in NRA Rules 16.2 and 16.3 for reasons outlined in Rule 16.2, a competitor feels that he or she should file a written protest, the following must be done: NOTE: Failure to follow the following procedures will automatically void the protest. 1. If the incident occurred on the range, state the complaint orally to the Chief Range Officer. If not satisfied, the complainant will: - State the complaint orally to the Range Referee on the range where the incident occurred. 2. If the incident was a result of posting or ranking, state the complaint orally to the Statistical Director. If not satisfied, the complainant will state the complaint orally to the Chief Referee. 3.

The Statistical Director/Chief Referee will contact the Secretary of the National Protest Committee and the Match Director. The Committee Secretary will assemble the Protest Committee. 5. In case of awards, a protest must be filed with the Statistical Office no later than 30 minutes after the completion of the Awards Ceremony. 6. The protesting competitor should be prepared to appear before the Protest Committee, if requested to do so. 7. After the Protest Committee has made its decision, the protest will be returned to the Statistical Office. The competitor may pick up a copy of the protest results at the challenge window. If the protest is sustained, the $20 fee will be returned to the complainant. 8. Should a protest require or involve a re-fire, the referee may collect the $20 protest fee, and the competitor will be allowed to fire the shots required to complete the match. The shots comprising that score will be recorded on the back of the scorecard for use of the Protest Committee. An Official Protest form must be completed where a re-fire is involved. 9. If the incident to be protested is in the pits, the complainant must orally notify the Chief Pit Officer before leaving the pits, who will then notify the Chief Range Officer that a protest is pending. The Chief Range Officer will then notify the assigned Referee. Protest Committee A decision of the NRA National Championship Protest Committee is final but may not override a prior decision of the NRA National Protest Committee.

116


Challenges 1. Each competitor should check the competitor scores as they are posted on the computer printout in one of the three results centers. Unless otherwise noted, scores posted are preliminary and do not necessarily reflect the final standings and/or awards won. If you feel your score, class, or category are not correct, it is your responsibility (team captain for team matches) to report this to the Stat Office prior to the close of the posted challenge period for that match. (See Rule 18.13). 2. Go to the Challenge Window in Building 950, the Statistical Office. Explain the discrepancy. The Challenge will be processed and corrections made if warranted. 3. If the challenge period extends overnight after normal business hours of the Stat Office, there are Challenge Boxes located at each of the three Results Centers to write up your challenge, place in the Challenge Box. 4. It is the competitor’s responsibility to make certain that the scores posted are correct. Failure to check scores within the time limit will result in the penalty of losing the privilege of any further challenge. It is the Statistical Office’s responsibility to correct scores prior to the end of the final challenge period. After the final challenge period, the competitor accepts the responsibility for scores posted. Procedures for Making Range Challenges If the competitor disagrees with a shot value announced by the Scorer or displayed value of the shot, the competitor may challenge the score. Rule 16.1 must be used. Challenge Period 1. All challenges must be made on the range before the end of the challenge period. (Rule 16.1) 2. Corrections to Preliminary Bulletins will be made at the Stat Office at the Challenge Window within the time period noted. (Rule 11.6.3) 3. Scores posted after 6 p.m. will have a challenge period closing at 9 a.m. the following day. All scores for each match will be posted at one time, not by relay.

Protests All protests must be in accordance with applicable NRA Rules. If, after following the procedure specified in NRA Rules 16.2 and 16.3 for reasons outlined in Rule 16.2, a competitor feels that he or she should file a written protest, the following must be done: NOTE: Failure to follow the following procedures will automatically void the protest. 1.
