The Club Aggregate competition is based on a standard FT course and will include kneeling and standing lanes.
The Head to Head (Small Kill/Vermin) competition will have a greater proportion of small kill-zones which are generally shot at shorter ranges, and will not normally contain standing or kneeling lanes.
Both competitions are aggregate competitions based over a calendar year.
Final competition points are awarded on 2/3rds 'best' scores ( 10 ex 15 )
eg: In a 15 round comp then only a shooter's best 10 scores (2/3) will be included in their total.
Points are based on percentages, with the best score of the day being 100%.
Scores will be marked x for a hit (where the target falls) and 0 for a miss.
Both competitions will be on a league basis but, within each league, shooters will be grouped into 1 of 3 grades - A, B, or C. Grades for each calendar year will be based on a shooter's average score from all Club Agg plus Head to Head rounds shot in the previous calendar year. New members will automatically be placed into C grade but this will be revised after their first 4 scores. This grading is a Club grading only and might not be the same as the BFTA grading.

PAT BYRNE TROPHY
This trophy is named in memory of one of our members who died in 2009. It is an annual FT competition for Millride members ony and is held at the time of our usual Christmas shoot.
MOST IMPROVED SHOOTER
After each round of the Club Agg and Head to Head competition a shooter's percentages for the year to date will be amalgamated and updated. This "running percentage" will be compared to the final percentages for the previous year. The shooter with the biggest increase in percentage will be the winner.
New members will not be eligible for this competition until they have completed 4 rounds of both Club Agg and Head to Head competitions. The 4 qualifying rounds can be from either the Club Aggregate, the Head to Head, or a combination of both.
