As you are most likely aware, we are still having problems with our targets, with some still being unavailable. Please note that we are working tirelessly to proof these outstanding targets and get these “passed” and have communicated to our supplier the magnitude of the problem these targets are creating.
Please note that due to the ongoing target issues where some targets are still unavailable and others have only recently become available, we are extending the shoot by dates for Stage 1 of the Eley Postal Competition to the 11th March 2019:
The Great Britain Team for the 2019 Dewar Match will be selected following the trial held at Appleton Rifle Club, near Warrington, on Saturday 15th June 2019. Those who have already qualified for the trial include the top 40 shooters in the Class X or Class A Championship Aggregate at the 2018 Rifle Meeting, the qualifying score being 2,673. Also qualified are the top eleven shooters in the Scottish Meeting Grand Aggregate 2018 who did not enter the Bisley Grand Aggregate.
We will organise the replacement of targets as stock from the printers allows. Please do not send in requests for other targets until notice is given that they are in stock. We want to be fair to our clubs and individual members but also deal with the issue with our printers in a reasonable way. For this reason we will replace any targets that:

The Current Position in Relation to Targets
The NSRA is working closely with our printer to continue to test all targets to ensure the specifications are correct. We are continuing to deal with them in priority order based on their competition use and are still working hard with our printers to correct their printing issues. We are releasing targets for sale as and when we are satisfied with their quality.

NSRA WINTER 2018/19 COMPETITIONS
Our Winter Season Competitions are being released for shooting as and when the majority of the necessary targets are available. This means that each competition is running to its own 'Shoot by Dates' depending on when the Paperwork and Stickers are sent out.
PLEASE NOTE: In league and knock-out competitions the last day for shooting will be a Monday and the cards must be received by the scorer not later than the appropriate Saturday. In the case of Inter-County League and Inter-County Knock-Out Competitions, the cards must be received by the scorer by the Saturday twelve days after the last day for shooting.
With regard to the ongoing target situation and the ELEY Competition, we would encourage everyone to enter the ELEY Competition as normal.
Shooting dates for the first round will be amended for those disciplines where targetry is not currently authorised for National Competition use, as the targets become available.
In those Competitions where targetry is authorised for use i.e. Comp B (Prone Rifle) and Comp G (10m Air Pistol), the normal published shooting dates should be used.
The Association has a special discounted price for individuals joining the NSRA for the first time as an Annual or Junior Annual Member, together with a bounty for the new member's club.
