If after I have nominated for an Open Competition in one grade and then shoot a grade break score, do I have to inform the Organising Secretary so my entry details can be adjusted?

It is a shooter’s responsibility to notify the Competition Organising Secretary, if there has been a change of grade between entering that competition and competing in that competition.

If there appears to be a problem with my score posted on the score board what should I do?

Seek out the Organising Secretary and polity advise them of your concern, there could be a number of reasons for this, allow the Organising Secretary and the score room personal time to look into your query and sort it out to your satisfaction and please don’t forget to thank them.

Do I have to remove watches and bracelets from my shooting arm?

Yes, in ISSF matches – Rule the wrist must be visibly free of support
For Service Matches and WA1500 you may wear a watch

May I use a medical support for an injury i.e. tennis elbow?

Yes, but it must not support the wrist or elbow. If entering an open competition it is courteous to advise the organising secretary, and present it to equipment control for approval.

May i use occluders and/or irises as eye protection when competing in the Service matches or WA1500?

No. Safety glasses, corrective glasses or sunglasses are deemed to be approved protective eyewear. An iris may be used in addition to approved protective eyewear.
