Urgent Notice to All Club Secretaries

Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.

Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.

To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.

If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:

Home Country Internationals

Home Country International Matches are held at all national meetings organised by the NSRA. They may be entered by one team representing any of the seven Home Countries recognised under NSRA Rules – England, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The relevant Home Country Union or Association will be responsible for entering and selecting its team.

When present at a meeting, overseas teams are allowed to shoot alongside for honours only, but are not eligible to win the match trophy or medals.

To represent one of the Home Countries, a shooter, Team Captain and Adjutant or Secretary must be qualified in accordance with NSRA Rules and Regulations, Rule 3.2. The Home Countries may require additional qualification criteria for selection to be met, such as individual membership of the Union.

Participation in these matches is open to disabled shooters in ISCD category SH1 (see NSRA Rules and Regulations, Rule 4.6).

Medals are awarded to the members of winning teams, including the Captain and Adjutant or Secretary. For many years no winners medals were awarded, but instead the NSRA provided every team member and official with a medal or badge emblematic of their country and/or date bar as a memento of their participation in the match. Responsibility for the issue of any representative medals or badges now rests with the relevant Home Country Union. Blazer badges for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are available for purchase from NSRA Competitions Dept. by shooters who have represented those countries.
