Ranking Procedure

3.    0 (zero) ranking points are awarded to the High Overall Score (HOS) in each category at each Championship event detailed in point 1.
       The next highest score in that category is awarded points relating to the difference of the HOS i.e. HOS score = 96 (0 points) next
       highest score = 93 (3 points) and so on.

4.    The competitors with the lowest total amount of points when the cut-off for selection is completed will be offered a TEAM GB position
       (refer to Table 1). The 3 competitors with the lowest amount of ranking points will automatically be offered a team place in their
       appropriate category and the 2 reserves will be notified of their reserve position. Teams including reserves will only be selected from
       the top 5 positions in all categories from the current rankings.

Resolving Ties

5.    For the team and reserve positions ties will be resolved by shoot off under the supervision of the Chief Referee for the event and
       members of the Compak Sporting Sub-Committee in attendance.

6.    The shoot off will take place as soon as practicable after the results are known at the Selection Cut-Off event. The Shoot-off will
       consist of 25 targets shot over a layout utilising 1 single and 2 simultaneous pairs per stand. If after 25 targets the situation is
       unresolved then the competitors will compete in a ‘Sudden Death’ shoot-off on the ‘miss and out’ rule taking each simultaneous pair in
       turn under the supervision of the Chief Referee for the event until the tie is resolved or a ‘Gentlemen’s’ agreement is reached.

7.    Competitors nominated and called forward to present themselves at the shoot-off position, must be ready to compete within fifteen (15)
       minutes of being called forward to the shoot off.

8.    Should any of the tied competitors be absent from the venue, or not ready to compete within fifteen minutes of notice to compete, then
       their place will be forfeited and the shoot off will continue in their absence providing there are other competitors tied on the same
       points, for the position(s) on offer.

9.    Should none of the shooters be present to shoot-off then ‘Countback’ will be used. starting with the result from the UK Championship
       (for the European Team) and the British Grand Prix (for the World Team).The decision of the Sub-Committee in this regard is final.

10.  The Compak Sporting Sub-Committee reserve the right to defer the shoot off to a more appropriate time should poor light or extreme
        weather conditions prevent fair competition taking place.

11.  If after following the above selection criteria the Compak Sporting Elected Board members are unable to form a team in one or any of
       the aforementioned categories, then a team(s) will not be represented in that category. However BICTSF reserve the right to send
       selected individuals if they feel it would benefit the individual to gain international experience (typically juniors).

12.  Should exceptional circumstances dictate i.e. should a team member be incapacitated for any reason, due to health, discipline or
       unforeseen travel arrangements, and then not be available at the competition venue prior to commencement of the event, to substitute
       that team member in the spirit of competition and fair play; providing the team Manager, Captain or Board Directors (if present) are in

13.  The selection process will then restart the following year.
