Make History at Bisley 100 13 August – 20 August 2022
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.

I’m sure many of you have already heard the rumour that a Long-Range rifle competition is being planned. We are pleased today to be able to announce that this is no longer a rumour, and the competition will be running throughout August, with a finals Weekend in September.
Despite its trials and tribulations, 2020 was an outstanding year for the Great Britain Rifle Team who were victorious in the Drew, “Goodwill” Dewar, and Wakefield Matches. Although 2021 is proving to be another turbulent year, we are determined to emulate the success of last year, which was only possible due to the efforts our very talented athletes. In order for this to happen, it is essential that the Great Britain Rifle Team is made up of the best smallbore prone rifle shooters in the country. To help the team captains select strong teams, the NSRA have organised a series trials, the full details of which are set out in the attached selection polices. All shooters who wish to be considered for selection must enter the respective trial. Entries close 30th June 2021.
The 2020 trials were hugely popular, which helped provide great strength and depth in our teams. So, with ranges starting to open up and plenty of shooters eager to start competing again, we hope that the 2021 trials will have even more entries than last year, which will help to ensure Great Britain continue to be a formidable opponent.
Entry forms are now available for 2021 Summer Postals

With the greatest regret, the Board and Staff announce the cancellation of the Scottish and Bisley National Rifle Meetings for 2021. Here at the NSRA we were very much looking forward to being able to resume our major Rifle Championship Meetings this year, so as you can imagine these were very difficult decisions to make and, as such, they were not taken lightly.
The factors that have driven these decisions include the following:
2021 is looking to be another year of uncertainty. Unfortunately, this means it is not possible currently to confirm the competitions calendar for the year ahead. We are currently in the planning processes for the majority of the usual competitions; however as you will appreciate, the likelihood of them proceeding depends on many factors outside of our control. Where possible, we will be as flexible and reasonable as we can to try and enable competitions to take place. We also are aware that Covid19 could, in some scenarios, prove to be an insurmountable hurdle.
Following the latest Lockdown in England, effective from 5 November, we are extending the last day for shooting the NSRA/Eley 2020 Postal Final to Thursday 31 December 2020. This applies to all Finalists across all disciplines and classes throughout the UK. All cards will need to be returned to Scorers no later than Wednesday 7 January 2021.
When the NSRA offices reopen we will as a matter of course reassess these dates should any further countrywide restrictions be mandated by Government.
