2021 WWSSBRA SUMMER INDIVIDUAL POSTAL OPEN
RE-ENTRY IS ALLOWED - ENTRIES CLOSE 31st MAY 2021
1. This event is open to all competitors; entrants do not need to be a member of a WWSSBRA affiliated club.
1.1 There is no limit on the number of entries an individual can make for each competition. Re-entry is permitted,
providing the re-entry is made at least one month before the shoot by date.
1.2 Where multiple entries are made, only the highest scoring set will be included in the results.
2. All cards must be fired in accordance with current NSRA Rules and Regulations, unless stated otherwise. Any
disputes will be decided by the ‘Competition Committee’, which will consist of any three current members of
the WWSSBRA Committee; their decision will be final.
3. COURSE OF FIRE: All competitions must be fired in sticker order and must be completed in 20-shot series
at the same distance. Each 20-shot series may be shot on different days.
3.1 The Iron Sights and Any Sights competitions must be shot in the prone position. The Benchrest competitions
are to be shot from the benchrest position as defined by current NSRA Rules and Regulations.
3.1.1 Competition 1: The course of fire is 5 x 20 shots at 50 metres or 50 yards.
3.1.2 Competition 2: The course of fire is 5 x 20 shots at 100 yards.
3.1.3 Competition 3: The course of fire is 5 x Dewar, which is 5 x 20 shots at 50 metres/yards and 5 x 20
shots at 100 yards. Competition 3 may be shot concurrently (see 3.2) with competitions 1&2 or may be
shot separately. When shooting competition 3 concurrently with competitions 1&2, the aggregate scores
from competitions 1&2 will be used for competition 3 scores.
3.2 Concurrent shooting – Where concurrent entry has been specified on the entry form, for each respective
distance all cards with the same card number must be shot concurrent. If concurrent entry is not specified on
the entry form, concurrent shooting is still possible. In this instance the competitor may ‘double up’ their
stickers (prior to the targets being shot); however, the competitor must shoot all cards for the respective
competitions concurrent. For example, the competitor may wish to shoot the 50m leg of Competition 3
concurrent with Competition 1; therefore, all of the 50m cards for Competition 3 must be shot concurrently
with all of the Competition 1 cards, it is not permissible for only some 50m Competition 3 cards to be shot
concurrent with Competition 1 – it is all or nothing. To be clear, in this example the competitor may still shoot
their Competition 2 cards separate to the 100yds leg of Competition 3; although, if this option is taken all of
the 100yds leg of Competition 3 must be shot separately to Competition 2. The same rules apply for shooting
Any Sights competitions concurrent with Iron Sights competitions, i.e. the competitor must either shoot all
of Competition 1 Iron Sights concurrent with all of Competition 1 Any Sights, or all of the Competition 1
cards must be shot separately.

3.2.1 All of the Any Sights competitions may be shot concurrently with the Iron Sights competitions providing

should be submitted correct to one decimal place. If the competitor does not have a 25yds average, then the

average, an average calculated from the best 10 of their last 12 practice cards may be submitted. Failure to
submit an average will result in the competitor’s classification being listed as Class A.
