Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

Alan,
I read your post same as Mike. You differentiated between National C/ships and Queens. The inference being that "anyone " and " novices" would be excluded from National Championships.
You need to clarify what you mean by " proper "

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

Does'nt really matter how it's conducted, there will always be some highend shooters who will not be available for some reason or another. That equally applies to any competition and should not lessen the importance of the comp. Set the rules and those interested will work out a way to give themselv...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

I also would like to see a "proper" national championship. Queens Prize meetings, whether they be national or S & Ts, may be called championships, and are prestigious events, but technically they are just large prize meetings. Anyone can rock up and compete, even complete novices. I'd...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

You can screw the numbers however which way suits the agenda. The numbers I gave are actual attendances over 7 years and simply indicates that we are not increasing attendances at the most popular comps. Generally you get better support from locals because not everyone can afford to travel interstat...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

Is there a state queens where numbers are growing? All state Queens are generally in decline. Maybe in overall numbers. Just curious though how numbers are going in each state for F class over the last few years? Since 2014 numbers in F class in each state have remained almost the same. Numbers var...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

This subject will die in the water because the championships are firmly rooted in Brisbane and not likely to be moved. Canberra was the ideal venue and central to all eastern states and SA where the majority of entries come from. Numbers attending are in steady decline and have been since 2013, but...

Re: Ammunition levy

To those in charge of the NRAA and S & T's( I know you read this forum ) Get rid of the ammunition levee and increase the membership fee accordingly. An easy way to do this is get rid of that useless, old news magazine. ( which I forceably pay double for) and use that" conscripted" mon...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

Ben,You'r being selective. Let's select another --Vic Queens had twice the number of FS than FO --- and don't forget FS comprises both A and B grade, so that makes Sydney almost equal numbers in each discipline. ( 27 to 23) In fact if you look at all Queens in 2019 ( except ACT ) the numbers are --F...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

The number of members shooting FS clearly indicates it has preference over all others ( not just PM's ) Point is that those shooting FS can move to FO or FTR if they so choose, some have, but the overwhelming majority choose to stay in FS --for ( to my mind ) obvious reasons --ongoing costs being on...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

The previous post clearly highlights the way it should have been, and should be. Particularly for FS.
As i stated previously--open it up and kill it quickly or continue as we are and die slowly.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

Assuming the 6mmBR was approved--- Which projectile weight? The only ones that compare favourably ( BC ) with the 308 are the 95gn VLD and 105 gn Would it be restricted to those or would it be open slather for all weights? As usual, change for the sake of change. Got me buggered why they just don't ...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

Can you imagine the confusion. RO's cannot tell the difference between projectiles let alone the difference between a 6BR, 6BRX, 6 Dasher, 6 XC, 6 x 47 and however more 6 mm there are. Then one would need two rifles -6mm and 308 to be competitive. Wonder who the bright spark is that put this one up....
