The TR shooting style may be entered in Group 4 in the event that no HB or LB style can be entered. In that case no TR shall be entered in Group 3. 

Exec Note: The TR style cannot be entered in Group 3 as well as Group 4. 

The TR shall not be entered in Group 4 to replace a “weaker” archer in HB or LB.

8. .Points for the team are scored by how close you are shooting towards the IFAA World Record with the team getting the highest points from each group. Daily points are calculated from the daily score, expressed as a percentage of the world record, as it stands at the start of the tournament, of each individual division in each shooting style. E.g. if the world record in a style is 500 and the archer in the same style shoots 468, the day score of that archer will be 468/500x100= 93.60 points.  The maximum points each day is limited to 100 points.
