RULES COMMITTEE… discussion on rule changes for Distinguished Matches.  Question on the number of shooters in the distinguished matches for points to be awarded.  There has not been enough non-distinguished shooters participating and points have been awarded to a smaller number of non-distinguished shooters.  The standards for award points need to be adjusted.


New rule on Distinguished Matches: will be 3-5 non-distinguished shooters will be needed to be awarded 6 points.  Six (6) non-distinguished shooters will be needed to award 10 points.  Accepted by all.


Proposal for 2-man pick-up team.  CPPA members can elect to shoot on a 2-man pick-up team as long as no other department member shows at the match.  Un-attached shooters would be allowed to designate themselves as a 2-man pick up team.  This will be provisional for one (1) year.  Accepted by all
