Nobody ever would score just 1 (hopefully) so it is a marker at the end of the year for the final analysis that the shooter took part but didn't put their card in. If they were given a zero, it gets mixed up with those who weren't there at all.
On reflection all that does is drop a shooters % right down and quite easily into a lower class. Not to me the ideal solution as it allows ringers an easy ride.
I think the better option is a no score.
