Gallery Rifle Nationals – 2016 Results

Provisional Results now posted

Results | Prizelists

Deadline for appeals Midday Thursday 8th September

A Thank you to all volunteers.

From Reception to the stats team and all the ROs across both days, thank you very much for your hard work, professionalism and cheery nature over the weekend.

We were delighted to see an increase in entries of 13% over last year (195 competitors compared with 172 in 2015) which is really encouraging. Initiatives such as the ‘Introduction to GR’ days help to encourage greater take up of GR&P, and I know many of you are involved in club initiatives too, making a real difference. It’s always good to see new faces on the ranges.

The last major NRA event of the year is the Autumn Action Weekend on 22/23 October. We are working on the entry form now and will publish it in the next 10 days.

Many thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you in October!
