Following lengthy discussions we are pleased to set out our plans for a successful completion to this year’s Eley Postal Competition. The consequences of Covid-19 have resulted in an extensive reassessment as we would normally be at the Finals stage by now. Our priority is to continue and complete the Competition in an appropriate format so with that in mind here are the changes we would like to notify you.
Stage 2 now has an extended shoot by date of 21 September 2020 for all Stage 2 qualifiers. Unfortunately no further extensions will be permitted and cards must be received by the Scorers no later than Saturday 26 September.
There will be no Shoulder-to-shoulder Finals for any of the 9 events (3P, Prone Rifle, 20 yard Air Pistol, LWSR Precision, LWSR Timed, 10m Air Rifle, 10m Air Pistol, Benchrest and Cartridge Pistol).
The ELEY Finals will now run as a Postal Final to end on 30 November 2020. Competitors will shoot their Finals cards at their home club, on the same course of fire as Stages 1 and 2. Our NSRA Scorers will score the Finals cards as they are doing for Stage 2.
Medals and Gun Box Stickers will be distributed following the completion of Stage 2. The NSRA is currently working with ELEY to confirm the Prizes for Finalists so please check the NSRA website www.nsra.co.uk for a further announcement during week commencing 13 July 2020.
We continue to operate with a skeleton staff, some working from home, so if you have further questions please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org Please also keep checking www.nsra.co.uk and social media for further updates
