2018 SMM3G SHOOTER REGISTRATION PROCESS
This year we will again be utilizing the services of PractiScore for both registration and squadding. This year’s process will include a lottery type drawing to take place after we have collected the registration requests from the competitors that are interested in shooting the match.
The total Match fee will be $325.00 per shooter, which will be due immediately after you are accepted into the match. Payment for the match will only be accepted via the PractiScore registration website.
The registration process will take place from 8AM on October 1st and run thru 11PM on October 20th, 2017. At 11PM on October 20th, registration will close and the lottery process will take place. Shortly thereafter, you will be notified whether you are in the match or on the wait-list.
Please do not be discouraged if you end up on the wait-list. For the last several years, nearly everyone that has remained on the wait-list, with a desire to shoot the match, has been accommodated.
Only one registration entry is allowed per person.
When you register, please have the following information ready. T-shirt size, division you plan to shoot, applicable categories (Military, Lady, Senior, Law) shooting partners full names, and valid personal email(s) to receive confirmations and match communications.
For individual registrations, the process will be very simple. You will receive an email confirmation when you have successfully registered for the match. There is no “gaming” the system. Anyone determined to be abusing policy by attempting to register multiple times or with multiple shooting partners will be determined to be unsportsmanlike, and refused entry into the match.
Following lottery selection, you will be notified whether or not you were selected. Shooting slots are contingent upon our receipt of $325.00 per shooter. There are no exceptions to this policy.
If your electronic payment is not received by Sunday October 29th, 2017 your slot will be given to the next person on the wait-list. Please do not register for the match if you do not intend to compete.
In an effort to comply with many requests made for families and groups, we will be utilizing the group function in PractiScore registration. You will be able to choose if you want to register as an individual or as a shooting group. The group process will allow you to group with family members and/or shooting partners for registration and squadding. Meaning, if you make it into the match, so would your family members and/or shooting partners (limit of 6). The group as a whole will be subject to the same random process. Group function allows those that, only want to shoot as a group, to be selected as a group (all or none).
Registration spots are not transferable, and our the refund policy will be strictly enforced.
Refund requests received prior to:
November 15th 80%
December 1st 70%
January 1st 60%
February 1st 50%
No refunds will be processed after Feb.1st 2018!!
More on the Group Process: Example 1 (shooting buddies): Bill and Bob want to shoot together. Bill enters the match first as the group leader. He will then send Bob the group code and Bob enters as part of the group. The group is treated as one entry. The group will make it into the match as long as space for the whole group is available if they are selected by the system. Bill and Bob cannot also enter separately as individual shooters. Example 2 (Family): Husband wants to shoot with wife and child. A family member enters first to start the group process as the group leader. Then, the rest of the family registers and joins the group using the code provided by the system. Husband cannot also submit as an individual. However, husband can submit individual application, if he does not join the group, and wife and child can submit as family group. However, the husband will run the risk of wife and child making it into the match, or vice-versa. Again, you have the option to join a group or register as an individual, but not both.
Approved staff and approved sponsored shooters must register on the PractiScore website. If you are unsure of your “sponsored status”, signing-up as an individual may be your best odds at getting into the match. If you sign up for the match and are later awarded a sponsor slot, your match fees will be FULLY refunded.
Approved sponsors may contact: Mick Bjelopavlic [email protected] for registration info. All sponsored shooters must be confirmed and registered by February 1st. After that date, open spots will be passed along to those that are still on the wait-list.
Squadding will begin in February shortly after the Sponsor deadline.
The match is already fully staffed so, unless you have been CONFIRMED as a Staff Member do NOT use the "Staff" button selection for registration. If you have questions regarding match staffing, please contact the Range Master through the link provided on the SMM3G website.
