New Rule

The Committee wish to announce that, using the Standing Order Procedure set out in the NFAS rule book, the following rule will be effective immediately and implemented for the 2019 National Champs. It is intended that the rule be added to the Shooting Rules section of the handbook, under a new “Championships” section. This rule will be put forward as an official proposal for the 2019 AGM.

New Rule:
To be eligible to enter the National Championships or 3D Championships you must have either:

  1. shot in a previous NFAS National or 3D Championship or
  2. provide three score cards (signed and dated by the shoot organiser) for the shooting style you intend to shoot at your first Championships. The score cards must be: for shoots that have taken place within the last three years, be from three separate NFAS open shoots (though not necessarily from three different clubs) and must not be from your own club.
