The decision has been made to extend the entry into our Winter Postal Competitions to MONDAY 10th SEPTEMBER. There will be absolutely no entries accepted after this date. As well as the normal competitions open to annual and associate members of affiliated clubs, there are an array of new or revamped competitions to make you aware of:
404 – Individual Time Limit League – A prone rifle competition open to NSRA members shot over 10 rounds in a league format. Each competitor to fire 10 shots at short range in 90 seconds per round. Please refer to rules on time limit shooting (Rule 8.15.4).
406 – Individual Benchrest Short Range League – This mirrors the new Summer Competition (306) and is open to NSRA members who shoot benchrest at 20 or 25 yards or 25 metres. A 10 round competition in a league format. Any sights may be used for this competition.
442 – Individual Standing and Kneeling League – Due to dwindling entries into the team events for Standing and Kneeling, we have revamped this as an individual league for NSRA members. The same course of fire applies as previously (20 shots per round – 10 standing and 10 kneeling).
499 – Individual Junior Universal League – A brand new competition open to juniors who are under 21 at 31st December this year. Shooters can shoot using any of the NSRA disciplines with 10 shots per round on the correct NSRA approved target. Shooters will be placed in a division based on their average and may shoot against competitors from other shooting disciplines. This competition is offered at a reduced rate as it is for juniors only.
270 – Club Pistol League (now following an Individual League Format) – 20 shots at 20 yards or 50 metres with slowfire pistol and PL15 or PL7 cards.

Information sheets are also now available for all of our competitions which details the courses of fire, special conditions, awards structure, etc. Yvette Edwards has been working tirelessly on these and I hope you find them as useful as we do. These can be accessed via the following link: http://www.nsra.co.uk/index.php/competitions-mainmenu-158/competitions-overview-mainmenu-59/information-sheets.
Also available on the above link is the General Conditions section of the NSRA handbook which gives guidance on the protocol for NSRA competitions. Please ensure that if you enter NSRA postal competitions you read this document. If you follow this as well as the Rules and Regulations which can be found under our reference section of the website, you should have all of the information that you require for a successful season.
County entry forms have also been distributed to all county secretaries who should be passing them on to the relevant captains. If you require a copy of a county entry form, please let me know and I can arrange for this to be sent to you. The entry deadline for our county competitions is also 10th September with absolutely no entries accepted after this date.
Very best wishes,
