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:

The Winter 2018 / 2019 Competition Entry Forms have been mailed out with the latest issue of 'On Target' magazine to members and clubs.  Associate Members will have received their copy of the Entry Form with their Winter Newsletter.

The closing date for entries is 22nd August 2018.

Please note no entries will be accepted after this date.

 

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.

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 The match results will not be published online until all the teams have shot the match as the scores need to be collated and published by the NSRA.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.

Introducing the new computer system for Membership 

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.

All Life, Annual and Associate Members

As a member of the Association we obviously need to keep your personal details to enable us to manage your membership and provide the services you have requested or will receive.

With the changes in law relating to data protection, we are contacting all Life, Annual and Associate Members to get a definite opt-in to processing their data.

You should have received, either by post or email, a letter from the Association asking for your permission to use your details to manage your membership. If you have not received this letter please download the letter from the NSRA Website and return it to us as soon as possible.

Myth 2

The NSRA communicates poorly and ineffectively

Truth 2

Historically the NSRA has communicated with its membership in a number of ways. The Association’s magazine has been a prime mechanism of communication supported by the website and general correspondence. Over the last six years email has been used more widely with social media being utilised in the 18 months or so. However the main avenues that have been used are through Club Secretaries or named Correspondents and the Shooting Council. These conduits aim to provide information directly to clubs and their members with the hope being that anything sent to the club Secretary will be shared with the members of that club. Similarly information shared with the Shooting Council is intended to be cascaded down to the county that the shooting Council member represents and from there onto the clubs and shooters in the county.

In addition to these main channels of communication, wherever possible we try communicate directly with our members when it is necessary, appropriate and effective to do so, usually via email. Our vision is to provide the best advice and information we can for our members and clubs. Email is the most cost and time effective means of communication but it is limited by the numbers of email addresses we have. If the vision is shared, and if any member wishes to receive information directly it would be helpful if those individuals could provide their email addresses, and the relevant permissions to enable the Association to provide the kind of information each individual wants and needs.
