Precision Incentive Bonus

Every cardboard target with a standard A-Zone scoring area presented to the competitor carries an opportunity for a bonus.  When a competitor places all the required rounds for stage engagement in the A-Zone for every target presented, a bonus is awarded (bonus value determined by each match director to fit their need).  There are 2 bonuses possible for every stage; 1 for rifle and 1 for pistol (if any cardboard targets are used for pistol).
