Please Note:

In the interest of orderly detail changeovers, competitors are required to be ready to move onto the firing point before the end of the preceding detail. The outgoing detail MUST move their kit to the back of the firing point before collecting their targets. Rifles can be assembled in the designated area, but bolts must be removed or breech flags inserted at all times before commencement of the detail. Assembled rifles may not be left unattended unless cased. Targets must have the competitor’s name, firing point and detail start time marked clearly before commencement of the detail. It is the responsibility of individual competitors to ensure that their targets are securely fixed to the backing boards.
