    It takes a whole yard to move. If you get a half you stay put. If you get another half then you move.

    You always stand on your whole yardage.

    If your yardage is 20.5, you shoot from the 20.

    If it's 25.5, you shoot from the 25.


    Rule VI, A, 2nd paragraph:

    "A contestant must stand on the highest whole yardage punched on his/her card. For example, if a card is punched at 20.5 yards, the shooter will stand on 20.0 yards. However, if one-half (1/2) yard is then earned, the card must be punched to 21.0 yards and the shooter must stand on the 21.0 yard line."

    I figured I'd take some heat over that dumb a question but it was posted to prove a point with someone who won't read rules and it got my point across. So, I'm a big guy, flame away.
