City Of Stoke-On-Trent Rifle And Pistol Club - Clean Sweep Of Air Pistol Individual League Medals 2017/2018

What a remarkable season the City of Stoke-on-Trent RPC had in the SSRA Air Section - Individual Air Pistol League - Winter 2017/2018.

To have one shooter gain one of the prestigious medals would be considered a great achievement.

To have two shooters from the same club winning medals in the same competition would be fantastic.

But to have three shooters from the same club winning medals in the same competition - thereby taking the whole spoils - is almost unheard of.  Certainly in the recent history of City of Stoke RPC.  Until now that is.

Mike Baxter intimated that in all the years that he has been shooting at City of Stoke RPC - stretching back to around 1985 - this has never before happened at the club.

A great achievement by all.  Well done done, and hearty congratulations.

Disabled Shooters - Do You Need A Dispensation?

Are you a shooter with a disability, and whom would like to compete in target shooting? If the answer is yes, then you may find the following article a very interesting read.

The full article appears on the Disabled Shooting Project website, and a small excerpt taken from that article is shown below.

 

Excerpt taken from the Disabled Shooting Project - Dispensation Information Article

 

Do you need a Dispensation?


Question: What is it for?

Answer: It allows less able and disabled shooters to take part in competitions.

At present the National Smallbore Rifle Association is the only national governing body to have this arrangement for full integration of disabled and non-disabled shooters in almost all of its competitions.

The DSP has been working with other governing bodies regarding arrangements that may make competitions in other target shooting disciplines more accessible for disabled shooters.

The National Rifle Association allows dispensations for competitors at its national meetings. The CPSA is considering whether this sort of scheme will be appropriate for disabled clay target shooters.

 

The NSRA's Dispensation System

Part 1 – The Problem.

Many people in target shooting have some physical reason for not being able to shoot with entirely 'conventional' equipment or technique. If this means that they do not comply with the standard technical rules, on the face of it they cannot take part in competitions shot under those rules.

These people range from those who have a relatively minor condition to those with significant disabilities. In some cases the reason may be temporary, but for the majority, it is permanent.

Some of these shooters only need to make minor changes to their technique, or to use a helpful gadget; others have tailor-made equipment and are unable to adopt any of the conventional prone, standing or kneeling positions.

 

Part 2 – The Solution.

For quite a few years now, the NSRA has had a system for allowing such people to take part in most of the competitions run under NSRA rules. This includes the majority of domestic championships, leagues and open shoots.

Any shooter who falls within the field outlined in Part 1 may apply to the Association for a dispensation. If it is granted, he or she can take part in competitions run under NSRA rules.

In the first decade of the 21st century, the NSRA issued dispensations to approximately 60 shooters. Some have more than one because they shoot more than one discipline.

Surely, the above photograph is enough to strike fear into the opposition at various shooting competitions in the future.

No, not the two chaps from the SSRA Committee who are pictured in the photograph, although they are excellent shots in their own right. But the mere sight of the brand new Staffordshire Smallbore Rifle Association Team Banner being unfurled at competitions will be enough to give the opposing teams the shakes before the shooting commences, as it heralds the presence of the Staffordshire Team.

The Staffordshire Smallbore Rifle Association Team when participating in events around the country will proudly display the banner. This will undoubtedly help to further promote the team, and add a touch of colourful charisma to their attendance.

This Website Is Now RSS News Feed Enabled

What is RSS?

RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites.

In the ‘old days’ of the web, to keep track of updates on a website, you had to ‘bookmark’ websites in your browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been added.

Some of the problems with just bookmarking your favourite websites are:

1. You, as the web surfer, had to do all the work.
2. It can get complicated when you are trying to track many websites at once.
3. You miss information when you forget to check your bookmarks.
4. You end up seeing the same information over and over again on sites that don’t update very often.

 

RSS Changes Everything

What if you could tell a website to let you know every time that they update? In a sense, this is what RSS does for you.

RSS is a technology that provides you with a method of getting relevant and up to date information sent to you, for you to read in your own time. It saves you time, and helps you to get the information you want quickly after it was published.

RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’. Many people describe it as a ‘news feed’ that you subscribe to.

You can easily set up an RSS News Feed account from within your own email programme - for example Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird etc.

There are even 'Stand Alone' RSS Readers available to download for free.

In addition, web based email providers such as Yahoo or Google offer an RSS Reader service.
