PHA HP MATCH PROCEDURAL CHANGES
2021 COMPETITION YEAR
0800: Gate opens
0815: Sign-in/registration/match fee collected/scorecards given out.
0840: Target set-up will begin (or sooner if 10 competitors are present).
0841: Continue receiving entries.
0900: Safety briefing, the match begins.
Relay and target assignments will be made after sign-in and target setup is complete.
The maximum number of competitors on the line will be 10, with targets 1 and 12 assigned as hospital targets for every match.
For future PHA Vintage or NRA HP matches, relay #2 will score relay #1 and vice versa. Competitors will NOT score their own targets. All competitors are expected to assist in the setting up and breaking down of the target system unless there is a medical/physical problem.
If there are more than 10 competitors (but less than 20), relays will be divided into equal competitors on each relay (plus or minus one if necessary) to allow as much space for each shooter as possible.
Competitors will not claim a firing point and equipment will NOT be allowed on the line until sign-up is completed and relay/target assignments are made.
We are trying to make our match go as smooth as possible and make sure everyone has as much space as we can.
We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to a great year.
