2021 WWSSBRA Summer Individual Postal Open Poster




1. This event is open to all competitors; entrants do not need to be a member of a WWSSBRA affiliated club.

1.1 There is no limit on the number of entries an individual can make for each competition. Re-entry is permitted,

providing the re-entry is made at least one month before the shoot by date.

1.2 Where multiple entries are made, only the highest scoring set will be included in the results.

2. All cards must be fired in accordance with current NSRA Rules and Regulations, unless stated otherwise. Any

disputes will be decided by the ‘Competition Committee’, which will consist of any three current members of

the WWSSBRA Committee; their decision will be final.

3. COURSE OF FIRE: All competitions must be fired in sticker order and must be completed in 20-shot series

at the same distance. Each 20-shot series may be shot on different days.

3.1 The Iron Sights and Any Sights competitions must be shot in the prone position. The Benchrest competitions

are to be shot from the benchrest position as defined by current NSRA Rules and Regulations.

3.1.1 Competition 1: The course of fire is 5 x 20 shots at 50 metres or 50 yards.

3.1.2 Competition 2: The course of fire is 5 x 20 shots at 100 yards.

3.1.3 Competition 3: The course of fire is 5 x Dewar, which is 5 x 20 shots at 50 metres/yards and 5 x 20

shots at 100 yards. Competition 3 may be shot concurrently (see 3.2) with competitions 1&2 or may be

shot separately. When shooting competition 3 concurrently with competitions 1&2, the aggregate scores

from competitions 1&2 will be used for competition 3 scores.

3.2 Concurrent shooting – Where concurrent entry has been specified on the entry form, for each respective

distance all cards with the same card number must be shot concurrent. If concurrent entry is not specified on

the entry form, concurrent shooting is still possible. In this instance the competitor may ‘double up’ their

stickers (prior to the targets being shot); however, the competitor must shoot all cards for the respective

competitions concurrent. For example, the competitor may wish to shoot the 50m leg of Competition 3

concurrent with Competition 1; therefore, all of the 50m cards for Competition 3 must be shot concurrently

with all of the Competition 1 cards, it is not permissible for only some 50m Competition 3 cards to be shot

concurrent with Competition 1 – it is all or nothing. To be clear, in this example the competitor may still shoot

their Competition 2 cards separate to the 100yds leg of Competition 3; although, if this option is taken all of

the 100yds leg of Competition 3 must be shot separately to Competition 2. The same rules apply for shooting

Any Sights competitions concurrent with Iron Sights competitions, i.e. the competitor must either shoot all

of Competition 1 Iron Sights concurrent with all of Competition 1 Any Sights, or all of the Competition 1

cards must be shot separately.

3.2.1 All of the Any Sights competitions may be shot concurrently with the Iron Sights competitions providing

that only Iron Sights are used. Witnesses must ensure that the competitor has complied with this

condition. There will be zero tolerance for any breaches of this condition. Any breach will result in the

competitor being disqualified from both the Any Sights and the Iron Sights competitions.

4. CLASSIFICATIONS: Class A: 97.5 and over Class B: 94.5 – 97.4 Class C: 94.4 and below

These classifications are ex. 100 and are based on 25yds (or short-range equivalent) averages. All averages

should be submitted correct to one decimal place. If the competitor does not have a 25yds average, then the

higher of their 50m/50yds or 100yds average (ex. 100) may be submitted. If the competitor does not have an

average, an average calculated from the best 10 of their last 12 practice cards may be submitted. Failure to

submit an average will result in the competitor’s classification being listed as Class A.

4.1 If there are less than three entries in a class, that specific competition will not run; however, entrants will have

the opportunity to shoot in a higher class (with 3 entries or more), if they so desire.

4.2 Should the scores of a competitor considerably exceed the submitted average, the competition organiser

reserves the right to reclassify the competitor accordingly.
