BICTSF EVENTS CONDITIONS OF ENTRY 2014

1. Competitors must be paid up members of their Home Association at the time of entry and event. Please make sure that your membership has not lapsed - it is your responsibility to comply with this requirement. Selection shoot flash finals in ISSF events are only open to the top six competitors who are eligible and willing to shoot for GBR if selected.
2. In the event that any cheque is returned by the bank for whatever reason, an administration charge of £10 will be levied against the competitor.
3. Competitors who are indebted to BICTSF for whatever reason will be ineligible to enter events run by BICTSF until the debt is cleared.
4. For ISSF events:
Juniors must be born after 31st December 1993.
Veterans (British Grand Prix only) must be born before 1st January 1959.
For FITASC events:
Juniors must be born after 31st December 1993.
Veterans must be born before 1st January 1959.
Super Veterans must be born before 1st January 1949.
5. A competitor having entered a BICTSF event and fails to attend and/or fails to notify the organisers that they are unable to compete (without reasonable excuse) shall be penalised by either forfeiting their entry (if pre paid) or pay a fine equal to the entry fee. Failure to pay this fine within fourteen days of notification will automatically suspend the defaulter from all events held under the auspices of the Federation until such time as the Federation's Board shall determine.
6. A competitor who retires early during a BICTSF event (without good reason) may be subject to disciplinary action.
7. For Olympic (ISSF) disciplines and Universal Trench, Referees and Judges will be appointed in turn from the previous squad i.e. one referee, one scorer and one visible marker board scorer. It is the competitor’s responsibility to ensure they serve in one of these capacities when it is their turn to do so.
Any competitor who refuses this responsibility will have one target deducted from his score for each refusal; persistent refusal may result in disqualification.
The Referee will be the most experienced of the three and shall be fully conversant with the rules. If there is any doubt as to the rankings the following shall be used to determine seniority:

1 Qualified Referee in the discipline.
2 British Team Member.
3 National Team Member.
4 Classification in descending order.

It is strongly recommended that competitors acquaint themselves fully with the rules so that when called upon, they are capable of carrying out these duties correctly.
8. A Jury for each event will be selected from the list of competitors by the organisers and it is a requirement that a competitor will serve on the Jury if selected. Any competitor refusing, without just cause, will be disqualified.
9. UK Sport may carry out random dope testing at any event without prior notice to BICTSF. Competitors selected by UK Sport's doping control staff to take part in a dope test are urged to comply with their instructions. Penalties for failure to comply with instructions or the discovery of a prohibited substance in a test sample can result in severe penalties. Competitors must familiarise themselves thoroughly with the information provided on UK Sport’s Drug Information Database on their website (click here) other information can be found on the ‘links’ page of this site. Please be aware that it is the competitor’s responsibility for ensuring compliance with the regulations regarding their medication, either purchased over the counter or prescribed by a medical practitioner.
