The Great Britain Team for the 2019 Dewar Match will be selected following the trial held at Appleton Rifle Club, near Warrington, on Saturday 15th June 2019. Those who have already qualified for the trial include the top 40 shooters in the Class X or Class A Championship Aggregate at the 2018 Rifle Meeting, the qualifying score being 2,673. Also qualified are the top eleven shooters in the Scottish Meeting Grand Aggregate 2018 who did not enter the Bisley Grand Aggregate.

The quality control of NSRA Targets is continuing and NSRA staff are working hard to correct the issues created by the printers. We are attempting to keep everyone informed of progress via the website and are happy to answer questions from clubs, associations and individuals enquiring about targets and the effect it is having on their competitions.

The majority of people are being very supportive through this process and are appreciative of the difficult situation and the degree of time and effort it is taking to correct. However, a small number of people are contacting NSRA members of staff and behaving in an inappropriate way.

Abuse of staff of any kind whether by email, telephone or in person will not be tolerated.

We understand the frustration that this problem is causing for our clubs and individual members but please try to understand our position and the effort that the staff are putting in on your behalf.

We will organise the replacement of targets as stock from the printers allows. Please do not send in requests for other targets until notice is given that they are in stock. We want to be fair to our clubs and individual members but also deal with the issue with our printers in a reasonable way. For this reason we will replace any targets that:

Ian Heald was nominated for Sports Volunteer of the Year at Lincolnshire Actives Sport Awards by Lincolnshire Small-bore Rifle Association, for his work throughout the county and within his own clubs; Yarbrough Target Shooting Club and Hemswell Rifle Club.

A British Shooting Talent Assessment day for the World Class Programme (Paralympic) took place in October and welcomed some strong emerging talent.

Expressions of interest were requested from our network of ‘Disability Hub Clubs’ and referrals from ‘Discover Your Gold’ (a multi-sport talent identification campaign) and 12 shooters were invited to attend a talent assessment day at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. 

The purpose of the day was to identify shooters who fit the profile to be able to access and benefit from one of the programmes underpinning the Paralympic Programme Pathway. The assessment delivered a comprehensive programme of skills evaluation, classification assessment and lifestyle interview. 

U3A3

The Woking U3A Group came to our Christmas "fun" Shoot recently. They each shot three cards with air rifle at 10m and three cards at 25yds with a .22 rifle. It was a lovely morning and everyone enjoyed themselves.
