Your match has ended. The volunteers retrieve the target stands that a parent built in their garage and the statistics office has a good copy of the scores for another successful state championship. As the last loyal stragglers turn off the lights, you call out: “Who’s going to write it up for Shooting Sports USA?” … Hello? The screen door slams.
“OK, where’s the form?” The Reporter’s Work Sheet (pictured above) is available to download. There must be a few thousand old, out-of-date copies out there so please use them at the next marshmallow roast and download the current version. It includes both the email and snail-mail address, whichever is easiest for you. “I have both standard rifle and hunter rifle scores to report.” Not a problem. Use two Reporter’s Work Sheets.
“I have two sets of reports—one for Score Sheets in SSUSA and the other is the official NRA sanctioning form. What the heck. I’ll use one envelope.“ Not a problem. Once the submission finds its way to NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, VA (11,000 tournament reports do each year), it’ll be opened and the Reporter’s Work Sheet will be delivered to the Shooting Sports USA staff.
We generally publish Score Sheets four to eight months after receiving a submission (it depends on how complete it is). The three top mistakes seen in submissions are:
- Incomplete sections.
- Illegible handwriting.
- No photographs included.
Editor's Note: We highly recommend you email completed score sheet submissions, along with any photographs, to [email protected].
