- In a smallbore rifle approved or registered tournament, selecting a jury in the absence of an NRA referee is not an option. The NRA smallbore rifle rulebook, Rule 11.2.1, mentions that a 3-member jury will be formed by the match director and documented in the tournament report.
- All competitors who shoot in an approved or registered tournament are required to be reported. NRA smallbore rifle Rule 19.13 requires that the sponsor report all individual and team match scores fired over the course-of-fire, as stated in Rule 19.4. Additionally, check out the General Regulations, Rule 5, Courses-of-Fire in Approved Tournaments Use: The number of competitors is identified next to the referee/jury chairman’s name in the tournament report.
- The definition of a “match” is a complete event, as indicated in the program, for the awarding of certain prizes. A match may consist of one or more stages. In some aggregate matches, the match may include scores in subsidiary matches. The General Regulations for Registered Tournaments, Reg. 6-Awards, requires that an award be given for the high scoring competitor in each class and in each match. (By the way, remember that national records are only accepted for completed match scores. The Final Tournament Bulletin must identify that a score was fired in a completed match. Otherwise, we are not allowed to accept the score for a national record.)
- According to Rule 11.1, the match director may change the match and firing conditions from those shown in the program. But, according to the General Regulations, Rule 2, all changes and information provided in the approved draft program must appear in the final printed program. No major changes in courses-of-fire, number of matches, etc. may be made unless NRA is notified. (Don’t forget that any changes should also be reported in the NRA Tournament Report.)
