Default Question on achievement pins

When shooting local club matches, are pins usually given to every shooter that makes the cut or only to the highest shooter in each class?
As in, only 1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze or could 4 bronze, 3 silver, and 2 gold be awarded? Or maybe itís up to the club?
Thanks for any replies.

The club matches I have shot awarded pins to all that earned them by making the "Cut". From my read of the rules I think that is how its supposed to work.
From the rule book:
3.9 Achievement Awards
To give competitors incentives to participate and improve, the CMP provides
Achievement Medals and Pins to be presented to competitors in CMP Games
events who equal or exceed established Achievement Award scores.
3.9.1 Achievement Award Calculations
Achievement Award cut-scores are determined on the basis of previous
National CMP Games Matches scores. Gold, silver and bronze Achievement
Awards are presented to approximately the top 40 percent of all competitors.
Achievement Award scores are calculated so that approximately the top one sixth of the top 40 percent of all competitors receive gold awards, the next two sixths receive silver awards and the remaining three-sixths receive bronze

Cut scores are cut scores. Anyone that makes the cut/score gets an award based on the rules.

However, the match program, put out by a local match director, can also specify match and range specific rules over and above the rule book. For example, awards to Match Winner only or Match Winner and each Class Winner only. This is why there should be a Match Program available on the club website or available before you sign up so that you can familiarize yourself with the local range specific rules, whether or not the match is approved by the CMP, how awards if any will be presented, and any other match condition.

At ours, everyone who makes the score gets the pin, but only one of each rank. The next pin they can earn then is the next higher, until Gold, and then, done.

One of the clubs I shoot at gives no pins. The fee is only $5. They report the scores, just save the time and expense of the pins.
