Behind the scenes scoring of prone, kneeling and standing positions.  Each shooters targets are collected from the line, and brought in for scoring.  The targets are perforated, separated, scanned and the data entered and read by a computer program.

The program circles the hit, and provides an on-going score and summation at the end of the match.  The results are available on-line within minutes of data entry.

I was not able to stay for the entire competition, but I’m sure that our Howard Country junior and senior teams fared very well against the other State teams.
