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 NSRA Offices and Shop close for Christmas at 5pm on Tuesday 23 December, and Lord Roberts Centre closes at 6pm the same day.  The Centre and Shop reopens on Saturday 3 January and the offices on Monday 5 January.

We wish all our members a very Merry Christmas and a successful and prosperous 2015.

Following on from the note published on this site on 14th October, we have now received a copy of a letter from Andy Marsh, Chief Constable of Hampshire and Chair of the ACPO Firearms & Explosives Working Group, addressed to Firearm Certificate Holders.

Entries for the NSRA-Eley Competition have been flowing in, but there is still time to take part.  As long as we can get the stickers back to shooters before the last date for shooting the first round, which is 22 December 2014, we are continuing to accept more entries.

The NSRA has received a complaint about a Child Protection/Welfare issue involving Mr George Darling in his capacity as a coach. The complaint has been thoroughly investigated and the findings of the investigation presented to a Child Protection Panel specifically convened to consider the complaints and the allegations made.

I am delighted to be able to tell you that I have secured the services of Peter Underhill to act as an Assistant Secretary and Peter will take up his appointment on 4 November 2014. Peter is already a well known figure in shooting and has held key roles with the ISSF as well as at the London Olympics and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.

The Results Suppliment can now be downloaded from the web site.

Under new Home Office guidance police will be able to make unannounced visits to check on the security arrangements of certificate holders in an initiative to ensure firearms are being kept and stored securely. However it should be noted that police do not have any new powers of entry.

The entry form for the Browne-Martin Prone Rifle Competition 2014-15 has been published.  Entries close on 1 November 2014 and the leading eight teams in the postal stage qualify for the final at Lord Roberts Centre on 8 March 2015.

Telephone lines to all NSRA departments and services at Lord Roberts Centre are currently unavailable, following damage to BT's cabling outside the camp.  There is doubt as to whether service can be restored before the weekend.
