On Friday the 8th August Haverfordwest Shooting Ground will be hosting and official Wales v England Head to Head match. Teams will compete in the usual T&P1 and Multi-Target matches as a preliminary to the overall Championships.
With this year’s Gallery Rifle National Championships approaching over the weekend of the 23-24 August volunteers are required to help run the event. If you wish to volunteer please complete this form, ideally before the end of July if at all possible. This helps with allocation of ROs per range, accommodation and food which all need to be factored in advance.
If you want to help on the ranges it is not essential that you are qualified as there are many tasks that need to be carried out on range. The meeting runs Sat and Sun, and some ranges are open on Friday to allow volunteers to shoot their events. When arriving early to keep the weekend free of shooting, volunteers will also get breakfast, lunch and accommodation free of charge. More information at each section on the form.

We ask for one and we get two. The next Home Countries National Match looks very much likely to be a two way affair.
Wales will be hosting England at the Haverfordwest shooting ground over the weekend of the Welsh Open meeting – 9-10 August 2014.
The head to head match itself will take place on Friday 8th August. Five English shooters and Five Welsh shooters will compete in the usual matches of T&P1 and Multi-target across both calibre types.
We wish both teams the best of luck, good shooting and a true aim.
Teams from England, Scotland and Wales competed on Friday the 27th June at the excellent range facilities that Derby RPC has to offer for the first three way Home Countries National Match outside of Bisley.
HCNM matches consist of the Timed and Precision One event and the Multi Target event in both Centrefire and Smallbore. Teams of five shooters compete head to head in all four events with the lowest score in each event being dropped. The winners are simply the highest bullet score across all four events.

Still time to enter this most excellent Real Shooting Festival. A great weekend’s shooting, fantastic prize table care of the very generous sponsors, excellent facilities, camping, music and dancing.
There is not much to separate the top shooters but with 14 registered classified meetings on the competitive circuit there is plenty of opportunity to get a few more scores posted throughout the season.
So far we have had 4227 cards shot in the rankings tables to end of Phoenix 2014 this compares with 2970 cards shot in the rankings tables to end of Phoenix 2013. The numbers look good so far.
Up to now there has been no National competition for LBR or LBP shooters. It appears that the number of LBR and LBP shooters is on the increase as can be seen by the increased numbers of competitors annually at the Nationals at Bisley.
The following is an initial set of proporals which could, with possibly further additions or amendments, be suitable for both LBR and LBP shooters.
It is envisaged that there will be two competitions, individuals may enter both competitions. The organising of the score cards and preparing results could be alternated between countries on a rota basis.
National LBR Competition
National LBP Competition.
To comprise of a Captain, either shooting or non shooting. One of the shooters may be X Class, One will be A Class with the third being B Class or unclassified. If the relevant country has no X or A Class members then the team will comprise of three B Class members, if no B Class then unclassified can be nominated.
To run concurrent with the T&P1 shoot held at the Nationals at Bisley. If possible the scores could be taken from T&P1 fired on the Fri/Sat to allow for publishing of scores on Sat night although this is not critical as it can be done after the competition has finished with results published on GR website as is the way the remainder of the results are issued.
Score cards to be issued by the organiser to Team Captains, the nominated names will be inserted by the organiser after discussion with the relevant team Captain’s. Team Captain will transpose scores from individual shooters onto score card, sign and hand back to organiser who will check and tally totals and provide list of winners, both team and possibly individuals.
Qualification to represent individual countries to be the same as for Rifle shooters laid down by NRA.
