BSRC now receives invitations to several of these. Two members, Paul Ben-Nathan & John Maddison, completed in 2016 and we hope that more members will take the opportunity in the future.
In furtherance of the first two of the Club’s Objectives namely:
To encourage and promote competitive shooting with the sporting rifle, in particular the International Shooting Union (UIT) and Nordic Shooting Region (NSR) Moving Target and similar matches.
To seek to improve the facilities available for such competitions in Great Britain, and to do everything in its power to ensure that this country is worthily represented in the moving target and sporting rifle events at International Championships and Olympic Games.
Between 1962 and 1999 the club sponsored members to:
Doubles 20 shots 95 John Madison 20.07.97 Deer Champs
10m Running Target 60 shot:
Running Deer Singles 40 shots:
Running Deer was included in the Olympic Games from 1908 to 1948. MT re-entered the Olympics in 1972 with the inclusion of the Running Boar event which was included until 1988. It was replaced by the 10m Running Target air rifle event in 1992 which continued until 2004. There is no MT event currently included in the Olympic shooting schedule.
Running Deer was included in the ISSF World championships between 1929 and 1962. It was replaced by the Running Boar event in 1966 and the 10m Running Target air rifle event was added in 1981. Although both Running Boar and Running Target continue as ISSF World Championship events, there has been no GB representation for many years.
Since the demise of the NORDIC’s, BSRC has continued to compete in an annual competition with clubs from Norway, alternating the location between the UK & Norway. There is a hope that, by continuing the competition, the NORDIC Championships can be restarted.
