need not be followed exactly. If fired team matches are part of the program, additional targets will be required. Remember that target frames require cardboard (or suitable substitute) backers. Competitors are usually asked to furnish their own stapler to fasten targets and centers on the backing. Match Officials Duties of all match officials are described elsewhere in this guide and in NRA rulebooks. It is important that all firing line commands be given as shown in Section 10 of the rulebook. Additional range personnel may be required to pick up score cards from competitors and deliver them to the Statistical Office. This should be done immediately after each stage is scored. These people should also help to insure the cards are signed by both the scorer and the competitor. After the Tournament After the last shot is fired and the competitors leave, the sponsor still has much to do. Every effort should be made to issue awards before the winners leave. If possible, a short awards ceremony should be provided. If this cannot be done, the winners must be determined and awards mailed as soon as possible. A results bulletin should be prepared and sent to all competitors and a copy to NRA. This is required for all Registered tournaments. The registration fees, reports, and a completed score reporting card (SR-1 or equivalent) for each competitor must also be sent to NRA. A detail should be established to take care of range clean-up, including picking-up of brass, old targets, etc. Spent brass can be collected and sold to pay for gifts for volunteers. They will surely appreciate it.

Some of the events require irregular spacing at varied distances and, therefore, it may only be possible for one or two competitors to fire at the same time. This, of course, depends entirely on the range space available to set up the selected courses. Most of the
