New General Data Protection Regulations
The new General Data Protection Regulations are now in place, with a date for compliance set at 25th May 2018. By this date it will be necessary for all clubs and associations to be operating in alignment with the new legislation. This is basically explained in the attached document NSRA GDPR Guidance for Clubs and Associations which is also available on the NSRA website.
Live results can be followed via the following link:
The Home Countries won 22 medals in all in the shooting events of the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast.
My club is affiliated to the NSRA, therefore I am a member of the NSRA.
To be a member of the NSRA you have to take out individual membership, either Annual or Associate. By affiliating to the NSRA, your club has insurance for both liability and equipment owned by the club. However, any personal equipment owned by members is not covered by club insurance. By taking out individual membership, not only is your shooting equipment covered (including theft from vehicles), but there are other benefits such as legal costs and personal accident insurance. In addition, you have access to a wide range of NSRA competitions which are open to members only.
The first item of business at the January workshops was for the participants to write down their perceptions of the NSRA, both good and bad. This was an interesting session, and as you might expect given the nature of perceptions, once explored and challenged, many of them were found to be untrue. Rather than allowing negative perceptions to continue, we have decided to dedicate an area of the website to addressing these aspects, and provide the truth rather than the myth.
There's still time to enter Eley's new OPC competition, as the closing date has been extended to March 31st. The competition is supported by the NSRA and British Shooting, but all entries should be made via the Eley portal www.myeley.com. Further information is available on the NSRA website via the link below:
A successful workshop concentrating on the future of the NSRA was held at Lord Roberts Centre, Bisley on 27th and 28th January 2018.
Some 40 delegates attended from all regions of the UK and contributed to the sessions which looked at increasing membership as well as reviewing the competition structure.
All disciplines were represented and there was wide geographical representation.
One of the key aspects of the workshops was that “no idea was a bad idea” and that led to some innovative thinking.
The key outputs of the meeting will be distributed to delegates and will be shared on the NSRA website shortly after that.
There will be a continuing consultation with members over the coming months and it is recognised that delivery of certain aspects is key to success.
