RUAG and Lapua will once again be providing a free batch testing service at the Lord Roberts Centre around the time of the August Rifle Meeting.
Two of our women pistol shooters were among the early participants in the Olympic torch relay. Gorgs Geikie (left below) from Okehampton, recently selected as part of Team GB for 2012, carried the torch through her hometown and GB Junior and member of Blackburn R&PC, Rachel Whitehead (right below) carried her torch through Horwich, Lancashire.
The Mayleigh Match (the postal international competition) and the Gallie Match (the British Pistol Championship) were to have been contested at the Northern Ireland Pistol Meeting in June. However this event has been cancelled because of insufficient entries. The NSRA Pistol, Airgun and Crossbow Committee is currently looking at alternatives for the shooting of these matches in 2012 and an announcement will be made as soon as possible.
The British Olympic Association has announced the names of the ten shooters to represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games at Woolwich later this year.
It is with deep regret that we report the death of Jim Mallows on Saturday 28 April.
Jim had been due to retire from his position as a member of the NSRA's Pistol, Airgun & Crossbow Committee on 1 May. He had been closely involved with the NSRA for many years, particularly in the roles of Range Officer or scorer at our National Meetings. In addition he was a Committee Member of the English Smallbore Shooting Union, and was heavily involved with shooting in his home county and city of Cambridge.
The funeral will take place at 2.15pm on Thursday 17 May and will be held at the West Chapel, Cambridge City Crematorium, Huntingdon Road (off A14), Cambridge CB3 0JJ.
