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.

The Home Office has opened a public consultation on what they consider to be "Offensive and Dangerous Weapons". This includes plans to apply further restrictions on .50 calibre and MARS (Manually Activated Release System) rifles which are currently for target shooting.

The policy intends to remove the availability of these Firearms for civilian use suggesting they may be used for terrorism. The proposed changes will raise them from Section 1 of the Firearms Act where they can be held on a normal Firearms Certificate to Section 5 and so effectively banned.

The 131st International Olympic Committee (IOC) Session in Lima - on proposal of the IOC Executive Board - has confirmed the place of Shooting in the sports programme of the Olympic Games 2024.

The ISSF Press Office confirmed that the IOC and the ISSF will undergo detailed discussion regarding the events programme, athlete quotas and venue planning.

Those of you who entered the above meeting, scheduled for 22nd -24th September, will already have received notification that the Championships have been cancelled.  We hope that entrants, and NSRA members alike, will appreciate that this is not a decision that has been made lightly and is one which has been taken with much regret.  In spite of extending the entry deadline, and sending reminders to previous participants, at the revised closing date only 72 entries had been made.

All at the NSRA would like to congratulate Jen McIntosh, Seonaid McIntosh and Katie Gleeson on becoming European Team Champions in the 3 Position Rifle Women's Event in Baku this morning!
