How the system works out averages
If your club has entered our leagues before, the system will calculate your shooters' averages based on these criteria:
- If they are shooting in the current league (i.e. the one that is running at the time of a new league being opened for entries) then all rounds' scores, already shot, will be used to calculate an average for the new league's entry as long as the shooter has provided scores for two or more rounds. The later an entry is made for a new season's league the more rounds' scores will be used to calculate an average for your shooters.
- If less than two rounds have been completed in the currently running league then scores from the preceding league will be used.
- If less than two rounds have been completed in the currently running league and the shooter didn't participate in the preceding league, of if they did participate but provided less than two scores, then no system average will be provided.
- The system does NOT use a shooter's individual score automatically for team competitions in the same discipline. Individual and team entries are treated as two separate competitions even if a shooter participates in both competitons and shoots his/her cards concurrently.
How we score our leagues
Our leagues' competitions are generally sorted into divisions of six shooters or teams. There are situations when we will deviate from this, particularly depending on the number of entries. At midnight of each round end date the winner of each round will be awarded 6 ranking points (if there are 6 in the division); 5 points will be added to the next best shooter/team and so on to the last shooter, who will be awarded 1 point. The ranking points columns are shown with a little downward arrow after the gun score columns. If a shooter doesn't provide a score for any particular round NSR (no score recorded) will be displayed in his score field and he will receive 0 ranking points. In the case of a team that doesn't provide scores for all its team members, NSR will be displayed even though the rest of the team's scores have been entered. The ranking points awarded for that team will reflect the total score received from the team members whose scores were entered. Therefore, 0 points are NOT given to a team that provides some scores. Those teams will be ranked in accordance with the gun scores received.
In the case of two shooters/teams entering the same gun score they will both receive the same number of ranking points. Subsequent shooters/teams will then be pushed down to third in the rankings. For example, three shooters enter a gun score of 1 in a division of 6 and they are awarded 6 ranking points each. The next best shooter enters a gun score of 4 but because he is, in effect, the fourth in the division his ranking score will be 3, the same score he would have received had the first three shooters entered three different gun scores better than his (0,1,2, for example).
Shooters/teams are moved around in their positions in the divisions depending on their overall running total of ranking points scored after each round. At the end of the competition, after the final round, the shooter/team with the highest ranking points wins that division. Winners of division 1 in any competition are awarded engraved, bespoke, gold medal/s and winners of subsequent divisions are awarded silver medals. In the case of a draw in ranking points, the gun score will determine the winner. In the case of a draw in total gun score, winners' medals are awarded on count back, with the first lowest (or highest, depending on the competition) gun score in the last round (and further back if necessary) used as the decider.
New Benchrest X scoring system
All our competitions will still be scored and ranked as above but in the case of benchrest competitions that are shot on the white centred targets we are now incorporating an additional column, in each round, for the number of Xs scored in that round. If you are shooting on white centred targets you will enter the number of points dropped on that round into the usual score box. You will then add the number of Xs scored into the box alongside it If there are no Xs scored then leave the box blank. Each round, and subsequently at the end of the competition, shooters will first be ranked on gunscore and, in the case of a draw, ranked on the number of Xs scored in that round (and at the end of the competition). Shooters are at liberty to shoot on standard cards for the distance involved but will not be able to include Xs into their scores. This system will only be implemented where white centred targets are available through the NSRA. This includes the Short Range benchrest competition and the 50m Long Range.
