    by Marty Lobert

    The NQRA national F Class teams have just completed their campaign in the bi-annual national F Class competition held at Belmont.

    At the nationals it was clearly evident that the standard of F Class across the nation has increased exponentially with the competition in each discipline being both very fierce and extremely tight.

    All NQRA teams acquitted themselves very well and in fact the NQRA was the only region to have a team finish in the top 3 in EVERY discipline. This level of competitiveness across the board indicates the high standard of NQRA shooters across the board.

  • NRAA Policy on the future of F Class Discipline

    • July 8, 2015
    • 3 minute read


    As at July 2015

    The NRAA acknowledges and recognises the growth and importance of F Class within the NRAA movement. F Class records go back as far as 2004 and perhaps even further with one grade in F Standard and a small F Open contingent. Rapid growth led to the introduction of Grades for F Standard and F Open began to grow rapidly once the move to Standard targets was made.

    At the 2013 AGM, the NRAA was instructed to include FTR as a discipline mainly because of it being International. Growth in all areas has been remarkable with…
