Para Trap STS athlete Allan Ritchie enjoyed a very successful evening at the Aberdeenshire Sports Awards on Friday 15 March 2019
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.
This is a summary of the main Target Rifle shooting dates for 2019. There will be the normal programme of national and regional championship events in Scotland. The Scottish Open Championships will be on June 7th to 9th and the Scottish Long Range Championships will be on June 29th/30th – both events will be held on the Blair Atholl range. For 2019 there are some changes to the programme of events at the Bisley Meeting (July 17th to 27th ) which has been extended to celebrate the 150th Imperial Meeting since the first NRA Championships took place in 1860.
The NRA has released an invitation to all ICFRA affiliated bodies to inform them that the Imperial Meeting in 2019 will be the 150th meeting and in 2019 the America Match will also be included to mark this special anniversary.
