    I have seen much confusion among shooters about the preliminary days of a shoot. First, at most shoots the High Over All winner is based on the last 1,000 targets (last 4 days) and the targets shot during the preliminary days do not count toward this award.

    Secondly, suppose a shoot requires a minimum of 1,000 targets to avoid a penalty classification. If a shooter arrives with only 900 singles targets, he can shoot another 100 targets with a penalty classification during the preliminary days and then be reclassified without a penalty for the remainder of the shoot. Fulfilling the required minimum target requirements can only be done during the preliminary days. Targets shot during the regular days of the shoot cannot be counted toward the minimum targets required to avoid a penalty classification.

    So then is the HAA/High ALL-Around winner the shooters combined preliminary and main event scores? Thanks Pat. I have asked this question around some veteran shooters and got that "look".

    The High All Around is based on the combined score of the singles championship, doubles championship and handicap championship events. Those are usually 200 singles, 100 doubles and 100 handicap. But it can be 100 singles, 100 doubles and 100 handicap if the singles championship is a 100 bird race.

    High Over All is usually 1,000 birds and it would not include the targets shod during the preliminary days.
