Shooters with a Disability: The main competition and Extra shoot are open to all on submission of an average as these 60 shot matches are shot in classes. The Grand Prix final will be run to ISSF rules and is generally not open to competitors with a disability unless the competitor is able to comply with the ISSF rules. If there is any concern about entering the competition or access to the venues, then please contact email@example.com.
Scottish Target Shooting is actively researching venues and is planning to run a pilot shooting event in 2020 for competitors with a disability.
Subject to entry and range capacity the extra shoot is an optional additional 60 shot match. Places can only be requested and paid on the day for a fee of £5. Main Competition entries take precedence over "Extra Shoot" entries.
The winner of the "Extra Shoot" shall be the competitor achieving the highest percentage increase in score from their main competition score and shall receive a return of their entry fee for the extra shoot competition.
Depending on range capacity and entry, the leading competitors after the qualifying match will shoot in an ISSF style final. The winner will be the competitor with the highest match score in the final.
Points for the Grand Prix series will be awarded per the following table based on the competitor's position in the ISSF final. If the range does not have capacity to run an 8 lane final the competitors who would have qualified for an 8 lane final will be awarded points based on their qualification ranking.
If a competitor who qualifies for the final does not compete in the final then the competitor will not be awarded any points.
For each competition the following prizes will be awarded in each class;
- Competitor in 1st place Gold medal plus 2 tins of pellets
- Competitor in 2nd place Silver medal plus 1 tin of pellets
A further award will be made to the person with the most points at the end of the Grand Prix series.
Thanks to the sponsorship of this event by RWS who have provided the pellets for our prizes.
