Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.
Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.
To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.
If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:
The NSRA is the national governing body for all Small-bore Rifle and Pistol Target Shooting in the United Kingdom, including Airgun and Match Crossbow Shooting.
Provided all competitors agree to their names and scores being published on the Appleton RC & NSRA’s websites the Great Britain Dewar Trial scores will appear if you click the following link: http://appletonrc.co.uk/frametop.htm
This will be the first time that the NSRA has streamed the live scores from this prestigious trial. The match results will not be published online until all the teams have shot the match as the scores need to be collated and published by the NSRA.
The trial is shot at Appleton Rifle Club in Cheshire and it is expected that 46 athletes will attend this year. The trialists are divided into 2 squads and the firing points are allocated on a random basis. The top ten athletes from each of the squads (A & B) will be selected for the GB Team.
The Dewar Trophy is “the oldest and most renowned International Postal Competition” and was first shot in 1909. The record for the highest individual score in the Dewar match since the introduction of the 1989 targets, with a bull equivalent to that of the ISSF 50m target, is held jointly by Neil Day (GB) and Olympian Mike McPhail (USA) with 399. Maybe someone will score the elusive 400 this year?
The Ron Wood trophy is presented to the competitor with the highest score in the match itself. New members of the team are awarded GB Dewar Team badges and GB ties/scarves are also available.
Monday 18th June 2018 will see the introduction of our new bespoke Membership database called NSRACalibre.
To ensure the safe and secure transfer to Calibre, our current system will need some down time.

However, we are happy to take your call and help you in whatever way we can during this period.
We thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

GROUP DATA PROTECTION POLICY
Kristian Callaghan has achieved a highly creditable 8th place at the ISSF World Cup 10 Metre Air Pistol final at Fort Benning, USA. After a consistent and highly competitive final, Kristian was eliminated after 12 shots with a score of 110.8.
Kristian is we believe the first British shooter to make a major Pistol final since 1995.
The new General Data Protection Regulations are now in place, with a date for compliance set at 25th May 2018. By this date it will be necessary for all clubs and associations to be operating in alignment with the new legislation. This is basically explained in the attached document NSRA GDPR Guidance for Clubs and Associations which is also available on the NSRA website.
