At the November meeting of the Shooting Council I spoke about the temporary cash flow difficulty that the Association found itself in due to the alteration of members’ subscription year end. This message has been badly misunderstood and the rumours circulating in social media are about the NSRA’s imminent financial demise. This is far from the truth of the matter.
At the NSRA Shooting Council meeting, held on 23rd November 2019, John Lloyd, an existing member of the Board of Management, was elected as Chairman of the Association by the Shooting Council following a proposal by Richard Watchorn the Treasurer of NSRA.
John has been a member of the Board for about twelve years and in that time has also been Chairman of the Pistol, Air and Crossbow Committee for the past eight years.
The NSRA would like to thank Stuart for his contribution which can be sung to the tune "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen".
Why are my hands so freezing cold
I can not feel the trigger
I've pulled a shot at four o/clock
It could be eight or bigger
I'm sure my hands will soon warm up
When I have left the range
Too late then to get a decent score
Too late then
Far too late to get a decent score.
