In PRS, other than checking the box to get an invite to a year-end match potentially, is there a difference between a "regular" and a qualifier match? Is the format any different? Additional stages?
Thanks @mtjones12. Thats helpful and just what I was looking for.Officially, no, there is not a difference.
Usually, a qualifier match is better attended by shooters of all skill levels, and the COF is harder than the standard club match (quicker par times, smaller targets, more movements, etc)
Your 3 best scores count toward the regional standing. It is your best qualifier score, and your best 2 other scores (qualifier or not). Anyone can attend the regional finale, you don't have to qualify for it (at least I haven't seen attendance so large here in the NW that it is limited by your season standing.
