Syracuse Pistol Club League Rules
All league competition is an 18 week period with appropriate breaks for holidays etc.      
League sessions alternate between a "Winter" league, and a "Summer" league.  
The Winter league uses the indoor range and the Summer league uses the outdoor range.    
If a shooter misses a week, that week is ignored when computing averages. It is not counted as  
a "zero".  
   
At the beginning of a new season, shoot backs are allowed through the fourth week.  
   
You can shoot multiple relays during any week to achieve "shoot aheads".    
   
Shooters can "declare" prior to the relay and have that score applied to one or two additional  
future weeks.                    
All Standings (Team, Center Fire, Rim Fire, Revolver, Rifle) are published starting in week 4 and are  
based on year-to-date averages until week 12, then they are based on the high 12 week average.  
   
Team and Class recognition and awards require a minimum of twelve weeks of competition and   
are based on the high twelve week average.    
   
For rankings, if there is a tie score, the person following the tie is ranked in his position.  
Example: If the second and third place shooters are tied, the first four shooters are ranked as  
follows: 1-2-2-4.                  
Rim Fire and Center Fire Classes Rifle Classes
Class A (Master)     285+  (Perfect=300) Class A (Master)     230+  (Perfect=250)
Class B (Expert)  270 but less than 285 Class B (Expert)  205 but less than 230.
Class C (Sharpshooter) 255 but less than 270 Class C (Sharpshooter) 175 but less than 205
Class D (Marksman)   Less than 255 Class D (Rifleman)   Less than 175
For returning shooters, class is based on the highest 12 week average from any previous season.  
Once a classification is achieved, a shooter never falls below that classification.  If, during a given season, a 
shooter's highest 12 week average places him/her into a higher classification, then that becomes the   
classification for future seasons.  
   
For new shooters, class is determined by the average of the first four scores of the season.    
For Rim Fire and Rifle, the most improved shooter award is based on the difference between the  
high 12 week average for the season just completed, and the average of the high 12 week averages  
over the prior two seasons.                  
For team standings in Rim Fire, the team average each week is based on the highest three scores   
by the team members. If fewer than 3 shooters score, the team is given a "miss" for the week.  
Silver Plate awards are made to the shooter with the highest 12 week average for the season  
for Rim Fire and Center Fire.  The Silver Plate award winner cannot also receive recognition for   
highest score in his/her classification.  The second place shooter in the Silver Plate award  
winner's classification will advance to first place in that classification.  Third place advances  
to second place etc.                  
For Revolver shooters, Center Fire, Rim Fire, Iron Sights, Red Dot Sights are all combined    
into one competition.                  
Additional information is available on the pink sheets in the back of score sheet package.
