OUR OPEN RIFLE and PISTOL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Incorporating the English Championships*
Will take place at the Lord Roberts Centre - Bisley
on: 27th- 28th April 2019
Entry-forms will available for downloading in early February
This is a selection meeting for Team England National Squad, (TENS), and for GBR ranking.
Entries will be processed in order of receipt. Entry-fees may be paid by cheque or on-line banking. Full details will be available to accompany the Entry Forms.
These Championships are Open to all, but the title of ‘English Champion’, medals and trophies may only be won by those who are ESSU Members on or before 13th April 2019
The ISSF Rulebook 2017 (2nd Printing) will apply to all events, with modifications in respect of 25m Air Pistols. Women will fire the same number of competition shots as Men in all events. The 50m Prone Rifle event will be mixed gender, including a Final, and consequently there will be no separate Championship medals for women although there will be trophies for the top man and top woman. The air rifle and air pistol events for men and women will be fired in two mixed qualification relays followed by separate but concurrent Finals. Athletes should choose their preferred relay start time on the entry-form, which will be honoured provided there are sufficient targets available, otherwise squadding will be on the alternate relay. Entries will be processed on a "First come ..." basis, so EARLY submission will improve your chance of receiving your chosen start-time. We do not have a 'closing date' for entries as they can be accepted on the day, range space permitting, but entries after Saturday 20th April 2019 are subject to a £5.00 late entry fee.
25m Air Sport Pistol events will take place at the Lord Roberts Centre during the Championship meeting, but .22 Pistol events will take place on Cheylesmore range in conjunction with GBR training BEFORE the Championships on a date to be notified. Championship awards will be made during the Championship meeting. Entry is limited to those who have authorisation for .22 pistols under s5 of the Firearms Act. Entries for Rapid-Fire Pistol are limited to six (6) competitors, and for 25m Pistol Women, ten (10) competitors. National Squad candidates will have priority.
