The NRA are running a pilot event at Altcar over the weekend of May 14th and 15th this year. The event has been planned in partnership with the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association and will provide an opportunity for members in the North West to develop their marksmanship skills with a variety of rifles and then put those skills into practice in competition, if they wish.
The weekend is structured around similar events that have proven popular at Bisley and the NRA hopes to help showcase the NRA’s ambition to invest in full bore shooting throughout the UK. The success of this pilot will help the NRA structure future events in the regions.
The event is open to our Club, and the NRA encourages our members to register and join them on the range at Altcar.

We have no wind coaches as such so I intend to allow individual shooters to shoot without a coach if you wish and if required having shot then could take over this roll and help out other team members who wish to shoot with a coach. If anyone has a large scope stand then please bring it along.
If any other UKPFBTRC member not listed above wishes to attend then all are welcome. Please let John Dugmore know ASAP. I need to inform John Saunders at the L&M.
This is as you know a pre- season warm up shoot but remember “we are in it to win it”
