Fred CookFred Cook passed away on 21st January 2016 after a short illness and only a few days after his 85th birthday. It had only been a few short weeks prior to this that his second wife, Ann, had died after a period of ill health.  

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.

The new IOC Agenda 2020 calls for a number criteria to be met by all sports on the Olympic programme with the most immediate being; gender equality, event based sports and sustainability. This means that all events within each summer and winter sport are to be assessed on their own merits against a set criteria established by the IOC.
