Team Selection                 Selections made by clubs


Match Conditions               3 shoots over 600 yards, 2 optional sighters, 10 shots to count.

                               Teams will compete against one and other in pairs, decided by a draw
                               prior to commencement of competition.

                               A handicap will be allocated to each team, using grading averages of
                               each member as basis. The final handicap will be 90% of the difference
                               between the max possible score (200) and the sum of all team members
                               averages divided by 2 (to make it out of 200) rounded to one decimal
                               place.

                                        e.g.      total average    = 386.9
                                                          ÷ 2      = 193.45

                                                  200 - 193.45     = 6.55
                                                                   x .9
                                                                   = 5.89

                                                      Handicap     = 5.9

                               The amount of handicap required to reach the maximum possible score
                               will be calculated as a percentage of the allocated handicap, for each
                               team


SARA Competition Manual : Printed 6/05/2009,                                                Page 4

                               The team using the lowest percentage of its handicap will be deemed to
                               be the winner in each round and final.

                               Points will be awarded on handicap score of teams:
                               e.g.    2 points for win
                                       1 point each team for a tie
                                       Nil points for a loss

                               Top 50% (+1 if odd number) of number of teams, on points after three
                               matches to advance to a final round to decide top three placings.

                               The final round is a separate match and scores will not be added to
                               qualifying score.

                               If an odd number of teams enter, then the team which draws a bye will
                               receive 2 points, but that team must shoot.

                               All Club to supply own markers.
