I asked around at our club session last night and it's pretty certain we'll be entering a team. Look forward to the paperwork.

Am I too late to have a look at this, there's a few lads at Donny range that would be interested.

Hi Brian
I have sent you an email through this forum
I need your email address so that I can send you the entry and rules doc

Last date for entries is 25 Feb. so plenty of time
We currently run 10 divisions of 6 teams/ div but the software can be expanded to increase the number

John, I asked this by email but then thought it might be a question that others would ask anyway; if a club has several teams, is it the rule or expected that the A team has the best three and the B team has the next best, or can a club choose team members disregarding the scores, for example a team of left handers or a team with HW100s?

Default Teams

Hi Rich

The system is that the best 3 shooters shoot in the A team and the next best 3 shooters shoot in the B team etc as in NSRA rifle postals and I ask clubs to do this.

I have been asked if a club could field a seperate Ladies team and although this has not yet happened, I would be happy with it, but generally the League runs better with the strongest shooters representing the best teams in the top divisions.

Default Other disciplines

As well as a benchrest league, the Midlands shooting League also run a 20 yd LSR postal league which I have posted about in the Paper punching section
We also have secretaries from 2 other clubs in the Midlands region who run 10 m pistol and 20 yd pistol leagues using the NSRA targets
Format for LSR/20m pistol/10m pistol is 9 rounds over 18 weeks for both summer and winter postals
The benchrest is 10 rounds over 20 weeks for both summer and winter seasons

Once the seasons start, shooters can shoot their cards/rounds as soon as they wish to avoid any problems with holidays and work commitments, as long as they shoot them in the correct order.
