It’s been a long time since we have pushed a public update.
Hopefully, with restrictions on the wane due to the rollout of the National Vaccination Programme we can all get back out shooting this summer.
Many Ranges will have re-opened and many clubs are reporting new memberships.
You should take the opportunity to remind your friends and family what a great sport Target Shooting is – and invite some of them them to come to your club to try their hand, when they are happy to.
If we all did that, we could see a big jump in memberships in our clubs.
When you get back … please be considerate of everyone working on the ranges and everyone else shooting on the ranges – we’re all easing back into it…
NASRPC National Competitions will resume on June 12th & 13th in An Riocht in Co. Kerry.
It will have been a very loooooooooong 38 weeks since the last National Competition.
We will push out the match notice and more information in the next fortnight.
This years Irish Open had to be deferred to 2022, due to ongoing travel restrictions which led to other Countries teams not being able to commit.

This year … Bracken will, instead, be hosting a National in July over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th.
