At the Cornwall Target Shooting Association Annual Dinner and Prize giving, the Secretary of Helston and District Rifle Club outlined how Helston’s Committee had nominated Mrs Susan Curnow for a NSRA Special Award. In 2019, Susan will have given 40 years of service to the Club and the Secretary said that members could think of no better way to recognise her dedication than to nominate her for an award.
At Wishaw and District Small Arms Club AGM in June, Donald Baxter stepped down as Club Secretary after 30 years. During those three decades of distinguished service, Donald has led the charge, growing Club membership, liaising with various associations and even being Club Champion for a number of years. For his dedicated and unselfish service to Wishaw and District Small Arms Club, Donald was presented with numerous gifts on the night including a letter of thanks from NSRA CEO Iain Root.
Future Instructor and Coach Courses delivered by South East Regional Training Team (SERTT) on behalf of the NSRA. We have taken the opportunity to fundamentally review the way we deliver these courses.
Why make changes now?
We have been delivering these courses for well over a decade. The vast majority of feedback we receive is positive, yet the numbers booking on to courses have steadily fallen.
The School Target Sprint Championships were a great success last Tuesday evening. The event took place alongside the CCRS and NRA Schools Meeting, where schools from all over the country headed for Bisley.
What a week, a very special week. With a letter of greetings from our Patron, a visit from the Lord Lieutenant, the Duke of Buccleuch and we had a 30% increase in entries.
We had the usual cocktail of weather and the ‘I Shot 100 at Scotland 100’ engraved whisky glasses were much sought after. Our supporting partners, sponsors, donations were generous. All were listed in the Programme.
This is the first meeting without Ken. We miss him. We miss his enthusiasm, drive, dedication, commitment and his passion for Scotland. We must ensure the heritage Ken worked for so tirelessly is secured.
We had two special competitions, the Champion of Champions and the Scotland 100 Match. Both went down well.
The Schools Pistol Championships has been growing and developing since it began in 2015. For the second year in succession there will be seven qualifying events held in October and November, covering a wide area across England, Scotland and Wales. Followed by the National Final held in January 2020.
The Competitions Department would like to thank all the competitors who competed at the 100th Scottish National Meeting. We hope that you enjoyed the meeting and that you will continue to support us by attending in 2020.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 101st Scottish National Meeting from 27th June to 3rd July 2020.
