Only a couple of Rule Changes:
rules 3.3.5 and 188.8.131.52 – These refer to the Rules about “Blow-Off” or Fouling shots. The NRAA has removed the restriction on these. In line with common practice in the ICFRA Rules they are now allowed. However the Board does not propose to adopt the practice of allowing a “Blow-Off” period on the first range of the day. Shots at a venue such as a Zero range are acceptable.
On a Teams Match day shots at a venue such as a Zero range are acceptable. However there are still restrictions on any sort of shooting…

There is a new version of the SSR’s as at 23 May 2016. There is only one Rule altered which is Rule 2.1.5. The Rule is about keeping the rifle pointed in a safe direction when shooters are vacating the mound.

The NRAA have examined the nominations for positions to both the F Class F Open and FTR teams which closed on the 11th September.
Unfortunately there are nowhere near enough nominations to form anywhere near a viable team in either F Open or FTR.
A reminder to everyone that full teams in each discipline are composed of 16 members in each. In order for teams to be viable it is felt that we should field as near as possible to full teams. It is also proper procedure to appoint a separate Captain for each team. The ICFRA competition conditions also…
