The National Small-bore Rifle Association has announced the dates of its major championships for 2018, and they see some changes from previous years. The Airgun Championships move later in the year, to April from February – a move the NSRA says will allow it to offer more competitions in the BOAG programme, particularly at 25 metres.
The 50m Championships in June will also see their programme updated to reflect the ISSF discipline changes in the run-up to the Tokyo Olympics, which see prone rifle removed in favour of a mixed air rifle event. The championships will become fully mixed, and a new prone club competition will be introduced. The NSRA urged its members to support its flagship competitions after the Pistol Championships were cancelled in 2017.
Entry forms are being circulated with On Target magazine and can also be requested directly from the NSRA.
