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:

The Entry form for the Open Benchrest Competition to be held at Bisley on 15-17 April 2016 can be downloaded from the link below. Closing date is 16 March 2016.

We are concerned that due to recent e-mail problems, combined with the delayed mailing of the December Rifleman magazine, some of you may have missed seeing the entry forms for Summer Competitions. In some cases (in particular the 50/50 League), our entries seem to have reduced from last year. The absolute deadline for receiving entries for any of the Summer 2016 competitions has been extended to WEDNESDAY 24th FEBRUARY.

As a result of the overwhelming success of the South West Schools 10 metre Air Pistol Championships last year, it will once again be held at Leweston School on 12 October 2016 and some pistols will be available to borrow once again if required. In 2016 this event will also be a National Qualifying event, with the Final to be held in early 2017.

Target Sprint is an exciting new activity which is similar to the Winter Biathlon event — where athletes ski with a rifle on their back and then stop to shoot at targets — except in this event competitors run, and shoot with Air Rifles that are left on the shooting range during the run elements.

Extended Entry Date - British Open Airgun Championships 12th – 14th February 2016

Due a mailing problem affecting The Rifleman magazine prior to Christmas, a number of entry forms for the Airgun Championships were delayed in the post. For this reason it has been decided to extend the closing date for entries to Friday 29th January.

We apologise to all users of the NSRA website who may have experienced difficulties in accessing the site over the past 24 hours. Due to perceived security issues, it was found necessary to carry out a number of checks to confirm there were no risks or problems which might have compromised users.
