All Ranges will be cold ranges, meaning no firearms may be loaded or have a magazine inserted at any time other than when the shooter is under the command of an RO and about to start a stage.
All rifles will be carried, handled, and grounded with the bolts open and pulled to the rear. MDs may require the use of chamber safety flags, if so all competitors will abide by the policy.
Negligent or accidental discharges will result in an immediate stoppage of the stage and disqualification of the match. Shooters will be warned if they â€œsky loadâ€ and may be disqualified for multiple violations.
Any competitor who repeatedly fails to keep fired projectiles on the impact berms of the targets engaged will be disqualified from the event.
All competitors will respect and honor the final decisions of the Match Director and his staff. If a staff members conduct or decisions are called into question, the MD will be called in to investigate and make the final call.
All competitors will respect the range property and abide by all range rules.
All competitors will respect each other and their gear; do not touch anyone’s gear or rifles with-out explicit permission.
Coaching while a shooter is actively shooting a stage is prohibited, ROs or shooters acting as ROs /spotters are forbidden from giving any corrections.
ROs should only use the word “IMPACT” to signify a hit.
Match Directors have final word on any disputes arising at a match.
Rain/weather delays, if the forecast is threatening severe weather a Match Director may cancel the match no later than 24 hours from the start time. A re-schedule date may be set at the same time, up to and including the following day (Sunday). Refunds will be given to those who cannot attend the reschedule date, with an effort to allow other shooters to enter if available spots open.
