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.

British Shooting would like to welcome your help around the National Schools 10m Air Pistol Championships 2016/17.

British shooting feels that identifying and developing talented athletes within pistol is important. They believe that Championships like this can unearth athletes with real potential to progress far in the sport, within the right environment and with the right support.

In an exciting final of the Earl Roberts British Championship, the 20 competitors remaining after the two previous stages battled with strong winds on the afternoon of Saturday 20th August for the 2016 British Prone Championship. This match is the highlight of the week-long annual Bisley meeting, which had been shot in mostly light but fickle winds.

You will be aware that the Bank of England has recently reduced the base rate to 0.25% — which is not good news for savers. However, the NSRA is offering a fantastic opportunity to invest with a gross return of 2.75% above the Bank of England base rate (i.e. 3% including Bank of England base rate at the present time), in addition to supporting the Association.

Results of the Olympic shooting events can be found on the Rio 2016 web site:

We have been sent a list supplied by the CPSU of County Sports Partnerships who run Time to Listen courses for Child Protection.

The Northern Ireland Justice Act 2016 has recently become law and introduces some changes relating to firearms licensing in Northern Ireland.

Guidance for firearm dealers (Dept of Justice) contains links to a number of documents outlining the changes.

These changes particularly affect young people, and the Dept of Justice has released a document Young People and Shooting that explains the changes.

 

Dear Fellow Shooter,

Over the years there have always been debates about whether our sport has benefits for health and well-being. Those of us who are active within the sport have no doubts of this.

Nonetheless, if we can prove for once and all, that target shooting has a real and substantial outcome for mental or physical health, this will have positive benefits for the future of the sport.

We are therefore asking you to help us to safeguard shooting in the future by taking part in two research projects which will take place this summer during Bisley Week.
