It is possible that one of the courses of fire for any monthly match may not be sanctioned by the NRA. (A "fun" course - these can get challenging!) If that is the case, the score for that course of fire will NOT be used in classification. The score will be used to determine the match winner. Check with the Range Officer or Match Official.
