Contingency Plan


If shooting of any Main Event Course or Courses, are cancelled by shoot management, due to the occurrence of dangerous weather conditions, natural disaster, act of God, or events beyond the direct, immediate control of the host club – San Angelo Clay Bird Association - or shoot management, the following procedures will be used to by the host club to establish all awards including the State Champion and all Class and Concurrent Awards.

In the event of any cancellation for any event by shoot management, a refund will be given to anyone affected by the cancellation. If anyone made the decision to drop out from any event on their own accord without shoot management cancelling the event or rotation, and/or outside of any cancelation deadline established by the host club.  They will not be given a refund.  

In the event of course cancellation on any rotation that cannot be made-up, all competitors will receive on all rotations the corresponding total of targets (i.e. 100) depending on which course they were not able to complete. If any competitor is not able to complete at least one course there will not be State Champion Crowned.

If there is any cancellation due to conditions deemed appropriate by shoot management, then all misses will be counted based on the targets attempted. The total number of misses will determine the number of competitors in the shoot offs to determine all Class and Concurrent champions including HOA, Runner-up, and Third.

In the Main Event 10 competitors in each class will be taken to shoot offs as well as 5 in each concurrent determined by the total number of misses. These shoot offs will consist of an initial 10 targets in the shoot off location followed by a miss and out format to determine the class and concurrent champions.

HOA, RU, and 3rd will be determined by taking the top 10 competitors based on total misses for the completed courses. They will compete in a 25 target super final which will be followed by another 25 bird super final until the HOA RU and 3rd positions are determined.

All shoot off targets will be added to the total accumulative score from the main event rotations that were completed.

Certainly no contingency plan for an uncontrollable event or series of events can cover every possibility; or, incorporate the multitude of alternative approaches each shooter might prefer.  To be workable, the plan must straight forward, simple as possible, and executable.  The above plan most closely fulfills these objectives.

Thank You for coming out to San Angelo Clay Bird Association for what is to be one of the largest Texas State events, and among the largest 2018 NSCA registered tournaments.

We are glad you are here.  Shoot well, have fun.  Exhibit the highest level of sportsmanship.
