A short video dedicated to the life and memory of a shooting legend.
The NSRA are pleased to support the Northern Shooting Show which will be held at the now well established venue of the Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate, on the weekend of the 12th and 13th May.
The NSRA will be exhibiting in Hall 2 again this year, so do make a point of coming to see us when you visit.
Note that club representatives should be available to man their stand during the two day event.
NSRA, Lord Roberts' Centre and Bisley Sports Wholesale Ltd. will not be contactable by phone until around 9:00am on Monday 19th February due to a major upgrade of the telephone system. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We have been forwarded a petition by British Shooting Sports Council, with a recommendation that this should be put to our members in order to bolster the case against this proposed legislation.
The petition can be accessed at: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/211656
The British Open Airgun (BOAG) Championships are being held from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th April 2018. The Pistol Airgun & Crossbow Committee (PACC) have agreed that there will not be a separate Pistol meeting in 2018, while they undergo a review of all the events which have previously been offered at the Pistol Championships. Therefore BOAG has been moved from the traditional month of February, to take advantage of the warmer weather and increased daylight in April, to additionally hold four air pistol Championship events on the outdoor 25 metre range.
We are aware of rumours that BOAG may be cancelled at short notice, and both PACC and the NSRA would like to reassure both entrants and potential entrants that this is not the case. Entry forms have been available to download from the “Competitions - Entry Form” section of our website for the past two week, and now the programme has been completed and is also available. We are grateful to all of you who have shown support for this event by entering early, and look forward to further entries over the coming weeks. The closing date for entries to this event is Wednesday 15th March.
A major upgrade of the NSRA/Ltd/BSW computer and telephony system means that the NSRA telephone system will be unavailable, for incoming or outgoing calls, from 2pm on Friday 16th February. The service will be restored from 9am on Monday 19th February.
We apologise for this inconvenience.
The NSRA Shop and The Lord Roberts Centre will be open as usual during that weekend but without, of course, any telephone or email access.
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Doug Mottram on 5th December 2017. Doug was originally from Lincolnshire but spent most of his adult life in Cambridgeshire. He began shooting over 70 years ago and known to many for his passion and enthusiasm for shooting and for his tireless efforts to develop the sport he loved both locally and nationally.
A successful workshop concentrating on the future of the NSRA was held at Lord Roberts Centre, Bisley on 27 and 28 January 2018.
Some 40 delegates attended from all regions of the UK and contributed to the sessions which looked at increasing membership as well as reviewing the competition structure.
We regret to inform members of the death of Tim Elson on 6th January 2018.
Tim was a past British Champion and President of Twickenham Rifle and Pistol Club. Tim will be sadly missed.
