The Final. Top 20 and equal scores. 60 shots at the appropriate distance, shot on the shooters home range during the two weeks of October.
Though the SMRC’s 1922 Meeting was the first at Bisley, the course of fire for the Grand Aggregate remained unchanged from that at the previous meetings in Scotland and elsewhere round the country.
The course of fourteen 10-shot cards comprised 30 shots at 25 yards, 50 shots at 50 yards, 40 shots at 100 yards, plus 10 shots in 90 seconds at each of 25 and 50 yards. Yes, the Grand Aggregate included rapid fire shooting!
The winner was A Jarman of Grimsby Central, an easily identifiable character on the range in his wide flat hat. Although he won only one of the six competitions in the Aggregate, his score was an impressive 1379 ex 1400, seven points ahead of the runner-up and 16 points ahead of third. Perhaps not surprisingly, Jarman’s score beat the record for the Aggregate by four points, the previous mark having been set two months earlier by A J Bayley of Lee at the London Meeting held on the Ham & Petersham Rifle Club ranges.

The Competitions Department are pleased to announce that from Monday 16th August, the Online Results Portal will be available to all for viewing results. Individuals will be able to see their scores from the Winter 20/21 leagues and be able to view the scores as they are published in the Summer 2021 leagues and competitions.
To find the Portal, please visit https://results.nsra.co.uk on your browser– you will not need a login or password to view the results. Please enter this in the address bar of your browser, not in the search bar or it will take you to the N.S.R.A. Website!
County Associations and Clubs will very soon have the ability to use the portal to enter teams and individual competitors in the majority of the Winter 21/22 leagues and competitions. Payment, however, will still have to be made via telephone or cheque. An online payment function is planned for the near future so that you will be able to have a one-stop website enabling Club and County Secretaries to be able to complete the entries in a single visit.
Local Scoring will also be in place very soon (once the scorers are trained to use the system) to relieve clubs of the expense of posting shot cards to central scorers for the Summer 2021 postal competitions, and to provide the scores to the shooters and Club Captains/Secretaries as soon as they become available.
This prestigious competition for Scottish shooters, will be run shoulder-to-shoulder again after missing 2020 due to Covid. Denwood Shooting Centre will be hosting this competition alongside the new National/Regional Long Range Rifle competition. The Earl Haig final will be held on the 29th August at Denwood.
The deadline for entries for the above competition has now been extended until 4th August.
Last month, the prevalence of the COVID-19 ‘Delta’ variant caused the various administrations to delay their easing of COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, many shooters have not been able to access their range as frequently as they had planned, which has impacted on the volume of cards they have been able to shoot. Although the majority of the administrations have now eased, to varying degrees, their COVID-19 restrictions, many clubs, ranges and shooters will be concerned by the continuing rise in COVID-19 case numbers. Consequently, the NSRA understand that this will mean many will continue to operate with at least some COVID-secure measures in place. Hence it is likely that the volume of shooting will continue to be impacted to some degree. With this is mind, the NSRA Competitions Department have decided to apply a blanket extension to all 2021 Summer Postal Leagues.
Leagues: Rounds 1 – 5 to be shot by 30th August and rounds 6-10 Shot by 11th October.
Staged Postal Competitions: all sets/stages to be shot by 11th October.
