  • Santa Cruze Muzzleloaders shooting at Scotts Valley Sportsmen's Club, California

At a monthly shoot of each club, every one of the shooters present fires six shots at identical paper targets, one target per individual shooter. The targets are placed 25 yards from the firing line. Every shooter of each club who participates is considered to be "on the team" for their club for that month.

[img:nn19-c1] Each club's postal match coordinator sends all the club's monthly targets to the UPMLA scoring person. After scoring each target, the five highest scoring shots on each shooter's target are counted toward the target score of 50 points maximum.

From the set of targets submitted by each club, the top-scoring five targets are selected and the scores summed to make up a club's monthly score. Thus, there are 250 possible points each month per club. Only the best five targets are selected because of differing numbers of shooters in each club, and differing numbers from month to month.

After all the targets are scored, the UPMLA scoring person mails score results to all the clubs in the competition. The results list the names and scores of all individuals from all clubs who shot during the month, and the total team scores based on each team's best five targets for the month.
