IE there was a gap in the kill area and missed , tough muck you should have called a marshal . if you called a target and the string was caught up on an obstruction , tough muck you should have checked the string before shooting . at the showdown . you could with your partners approval decide to shoot whichever target you declared you were aiming at . bit like pool . you were not allowed to stand on the bean bag on standers to level the ground out . i am sure there were a lot more i do not remember ???
