It is with the greatest of sadness that we have to inform you of the passing of Lones Wigger.

He passed away on the 14th December at approximately 6:51pm Colorado Springs time.

We would like to offer our condolences to the friends, family, colleagues and all of those who knew Lones.

Lones was due to travel to the 2017 Bisley National Meeting as a member of the US Roberts Team, however unfortunately due to health reasons he was unable to make the trip.

In recognition of his outstanding achievements and contribution to the sport, the NSRA presented to Lones a certificate to honour this. The certificate was received on his behalf by the American Team at Bisley and then presented to Lones on his 80th Birthday.

We have received a fitting tribute to one of the greatest, if not the greatest marksman of all.
