RULE NO 3.

Whenever there is an element of doubt about the stability of a wind condition, check it on the sighter.
The usual thing that will trigger this doubt is a record shot which didn’t go where it was expected – a scratch ten, or an unexplained elevation change. Don’t assume the bad shot was a control problem unless it can be positively identified as such. There may have been a slight change in the wind which went undetected. If the sighter confirms a wind change, then apply Rules 1 or 2 as applicable. Don’t return to the record target until you are satisfied that you are reading the new condition correctly.
