Area Representatives for Gallery Rifle and Pistol
Following the reforming of the Gallery Rifle and Pistol sub committee, a number of issues were put forward and highlighted as problems. The main one was communication for shooters away from Bisley, and how we can provide better information and services for all. Although there is a web site for gallery rifle looked after by Neil Francis and another by John Robinson they are probably unknown to many, but once you have found your way round them there is a lot of helpful information on them. The NRA site is based round Bisley, and the existing system of area representatives operated by the NRA are not suitable for our needs of keeping gallery shooters informed about what is happening or planned.
So how do we improve things? The first step is setting up a network of area reps to act as a conduit to gather information on clubs in the area, their facilities, types of shooting catered for, instruction offered and contact details. We can then help them by providing training in the area for specific disciplines, and training people up as instructors with out having to travel to Bisley as required.
The role initially would involve listing clubs catering for gallery rifle and pistol in the area and build up a repertoire with them, then once established and running keeping in touch with them and their members, feed back their needs to the sub committee.
We need volunteers in the rough areas shown on the map to help us improve the help and support available to gallery rifle and pistol shooters in the country. We want more people to take up the sport, improve so that they could be in a position of representing their country, or just get more out of the sport.
The areas are shown on the map and open to amendment but offered as a starting point suggestions from people knowing the area will be taken onboard.
If you think you can help and are prepared to put in some time and effort to further the sport, please contact; email@example.com with a brief bit about your shooting interests so we can tell people who’s their contacts are.
Many thanks in anticipation of you help.
