class for extra points, but only two targets may score.
Hits on targets closer Sta
than the required distance will not score.
Scoring:     Each hit at the required
distance is worth 25 points. Hits at each progressively farther target are each
worth an extra 10 points. For example: in Stomping class, a hit on the green
target on the left and then the blue on the right would score 25 and 45 points.
A Stopping-class shooter who hit a blue and a white would earn 35 and 45 points.
The total elapsed time, in seconds, from the start signal until the second hit will be subtracted
from the point score. Any shooter who does not hit at least the two required
