It will be the 100th NSRA Scottish Championships this year. The event will take place from 29th June to 5th July at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder. The NSRA are asking for assistance as there are very few volunteers to act as Range Officers.
Scottish Target Shooting is sad to announce that current Chair, Angus Loudon (pictured on the right at the Long Range competition), is set to stand down on completion of his 4 year term at the 2019 AGM. Recruitment for a new Chair will begin immediately but Angus has confirmed that he will remain in place until a new Chair can be found. Angus is stepping down for personal reasons but has very much enjoyed his time with STS and wishes all its members, volunteers and staff all the best for the future.
England won this season's match comfortably, with an improved score over last year's and only two points off the all-time record. Scotland came second, dropping a little from their previous score to widen the gap at the top.
STS is pleased to announce that we are seeking applications to the Performance Programme and the process is now open. Selections would normally take place in the autumn, however because of the work going into facilitating the transition of the programme from sportscotland to STS this did not take place last year. In order to minimise disruption to the athletes, coaches and the programme, we will not be going through the full selection process for the whole programme until the end of the season. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, we will be looking at a limited intake of new athletes onto the programme in the next couple of months. Applications to be made by 31st March.
Edinburgh was the place to be on the weekend of 9 and 10 March - not only for the Scotland v Wales 6 Nations Match, but for the Scottish Target Shooting 10m Air Rifle and Air Pistol Championships, making it a double value weekend!
