Urgent Notice to All Club Secretaries

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:

News regarding the administrtion of the Association

The NSRA acts as “sponsor” for people wishing to bring their firearms to mainland Britain to shoot in NSRA events. The Association administers the applications in conjunction with Surrey Police who issue the Visitor’s Permit.

Due to issues involving visitors to Britain in other Police Authorities, there have been some changes to the way the Police are administering this service.

New General Data Protection Regulations

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.

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 2017 British Open Airgun Championships

We would like to offer our sincere apologies to the competitors and the families of those concerned for the omission of two key results tables in the current (Spring) edition 801 of 'On Target' magazine. We would also like to offer our sincere apologies for an error in the results table for the Men's Air Rifle competition.

These errors are highly regrettable and we would like to emphasise that this was a genuine mistake made during the magazine compilation process. We have taken steps to ensure such omissions do not re-occur when preparing and editing articles for publication in future. Competitors were notified of all results by email on the 23rd March.

In addition to this notice, we will publish the missing results and correct results for Men's Air Rifle Competition in the next (Summer) edition 802 of the magazine.

Competition 17: British Sporter Rifle (Championship)
Competition 18: Sporter Rifle Standing (Competition)

However, the NSRA is offering a fantastic opportunity to invest with a gross return of 2.75% above the Bank of England base rate (i.e. 3% including Bank of England base rate at the present time), in addition to supporting the Association.
