Having been advertised at the British Airgun Championship in April, and with entry forms emailed to those who expressed an interest, sadly entries to the above event are at this moment very poor. Whilst the primary purpose of the event was to decide the 50m British Champion for 2018 (The Gallie Championship), it was also to be used as a selection process for the GB Mayleigh Team (team of 10 plus 2 reserves), in the match against USA, Canada, South Africa and Australia.

We have received news of the death of Norah Hunter of Croydon, Surrey. Norah will have been familiar to many shooters through her long service as Honorary Treasurer of the English Small-bore Shooting Union. Together with her late husband John, plus Frank and Audrey Balcombe, she made up the quartet who were for many years the driving force behind the Union.
