ON-LINE SCORING STEP ONE - Entering Your Measurements

FIGURE A

FIGURE B

All measurements must be made with a 1/4-inch wide flexible steel tape to the nearest one-eighth of an inch. Enter fractional figures in eighths, without reduction. For example, if a point measures 7 and 2/8 inches, you would enter 7 2/8 in the space provided.

A. TIP TO TIP SPREAD
The tip to tip spread is measured between the tips of the horns. See Figure A.

Tip to Tip Spread:

B. INSIDE SPREAD OF MAIN BEAMS
The inside spread of the main beams is measured at a right angle to the center line of the skull at the widest point between the main beams.
Inside Spread:
C. LENGTH OF HORN
The length of horn is measured on the outside curve on the general line illustrated in Figure A. The line taken will vary with different heads, depending on the direction of their curvature. Measure along the center of the outer curve from the tip of the horn to a point in line with the lowest edge of the base, using a straight edge to establish the line end.
Length of Right Horn: Length of Left Horn:
D-1. CIRCUMFERENCE OF BASE
The circumference of the base is measured at a right angle to the axis of the horn. DO NOT follow the irregular edge of the horn; the line of measurement must be entirely on horn material.
Base of Right Horn: Base of Left Horn:
D-2-4. HORN CIRCUMFERENCES
Divide Measurement C of the longer horn by four. Starting at the base, mark both horns at these quarters (even though the other horn is shorter) and measure the circumferences at these marks. If the prong interferes with D-2, move the measurement down to just below the swelling of the prong. If D-3 falls in the swelling of the prong, move the measurement up to just above the prong.

E. LENGTH OF PRONG
Measure from the tip of the prong along the upper edge of the outer side to the horn; then continue around the horn to a point at the rear of the horn where straight edge across the back of both horns touches the horn, with the latter part being at a right angle to the long axis of the horn.
