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.

The Association has five categories of affiliation for organisations, the full details of which are set out in NSRA Rules and Regulations, Rule 2. Broadly they are:

Category A - Clubs. A club is a shooting organisation which principally uses not more than two ranges (one indoors, one outdoors) for its home matches and practice for each of the disciplines it follows (rifle, pistol, airgun, etc).

Category B - Local Associations and Leagues. An organisation which provides a local league or other competitions for clubs located within a predetermined area.

Category C - County Associations. 

Category D - Other Shooting Organisations. Shooting organisations not covered by the previous three categories, such as Home Country Unions or national groups working only within a specialist area. 

Category E - Other Organisations. Organisations falling outside the previous four categories, such as commercial enterprises.

The basic affiliation fees for 2018 will appear here soon:

 Category A  up to 15 members   
   16 to 30 members  
   31 to 75 members  
   more than 75 members   
 Category A Junior Clubs   up to 15 members  
   more than 15 members  
 Category B

The 2018 Club Affiliation forms will be available soon

 

Please ensure that when you return the new club affiliation paperwork you enclose a copy of the Clubs Constitutions and Byelaws.

There are a number documents that affiliated clubs and organisations might find useful. They are available in the form of Codes and Guidance which can be found in the Reference section.  Bluefin Sport have developed a mini-site dedicated to the insurance they provide for NSRA members and affiliated clubs.

SHOOTING SCIENCE

Medical, psychological and technical advances

 

Following on from the success of our 2015 seminar, ‘The Inner World of Competitive Shooting’, we are delighted to announce the date of our next international seminar which will be held on April 1st, 2017.

This seminar will concentrate on information, techniques and technology which can be used to improve shooting performance. There will be an emphasis on self-help techniques, tested, tried and safe techniques which you, yourself, can use to increase your scores.

I wanted to send out one final reminder for the Bisley Rifle Meeting. The close date for this event on the entry form is 6th July. However, as this is midweek during the Scottish Rifle Meeting in Lauder, the official deadline for the Bisley Rifle Meeting has been extended until Wednesday 13th July ... This is the ABSOLUTE deadline for this competition and no entries will be accepted after this date.
