Individual ties will be broken by reverse sub event. In the event that a participant breaks a 100 straight, they are to shoot 25 bird sub-events (5 per post) until they miss a target. The results of each subsequent sub-event are to be turned in with the scores also. Coaches should retain the score sheet for each tie-breaking 25 bird sub-event that follows the regular 100 target AIM Online event.
Winners of the 2012 AIM Online Handicap Championships will be announced on www.aim4ata.com after the winners have been determined and their scores have been verified using the registered shoot report that is sent in by the gun club.
