Please find attached the final listing of all the awards and trophies for all competitions held in the Summer 2021 and Winter 2021-2022 seasons.
Congratulations to all the winners of Team and Individual medals and trophies. Medals and certificates for the winter season are being distributed through the club league contacts. Trophies will take some time to locate and engrave before being re-presented to their new winners.
Finally an end to the longest ever Winter Season. After tiers, lockdown, restrictions and a couple of deadline postponements – the final deadline for scores to be received has passed, and the results are in.
Due to the pandemic, we only ran the Individual and Team of 3 leagues, and then only with a half course of fire. As expected, participation was well down, but still reasonable given the circumstances. We also welcomed Market Drayton as a new club to the Dorset rifle leagues.
In the end some people were still unable to shoot their cards, but there was still a decent competition in most divisions.
Congratulations to all the division winners! Medals will be issued in due course.
This summer we only ran Individual competitions for 50m and 100yds, due to the uncertainty of the rate at which shooters would return to shooting after the lockdown. The previous season’s winter leagues were also still going on, and so there were still plenty of short range cards to be shot. Entries to the two competitions were rather low, but it is clear that some people were encouraged back to the range by the fact that there were cards to be shot.
To keep it simple, the competitions were shot in classes, with certificates being awarded to the winners of each class. No medals this year, as it was another very unusual year! Hopefully we’ll be back to normal in 2022.
The results of each competition are posted below. Congratulations to all the class winners – certificates will be sent out in the coming days.
In a normal year, the trophy and medal list would be prepared in time for presentations at the May AGM, covering the previous summer & winter seasons. Due to the pandemic, and the extended deadlines for some of the Winter competitions, the list has only now been possible to collate.
Congratulations to all the Team and Individual medal and trophy winners listed in the file attached to this post. Trophies will not be presented this year, but the winners names will be engraved on them at the earliest opportunity; medals will be distributed to all clubs in the next week or two.
Scores and knockout table for rounds 1, 2, 3 and the Final of the J.R. Newman team ‘name your own start’ competition are attached below.
Unfortunately the final round was disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, which is most unfortunate. In the end, no cards were received from Wimborne and so congratulations go to the winners, Andy Todd and Rob Keenan of Flight Refuelling ‘B’ . Scores and the final knockout table are available below.
Congratulations to Rob on winning the Class Aggregate for the Codrington Memorial Challenge Trophy at the recent NSRA Bisley Meeting. Robs score of 2702 which would have placed him 11th in Class X. He also won the following medals and trophies on the way.

3rd in Competition 10a, 40 shots at 50 yard, and 3rd in the overall aggregate of 40 shots at 50 Mtr and 40 shots at 100 yard.
Rob was equal first in the Life and annual members competition with 392 ex 400, 6th in the Champions of Champions with a score of 614.20 and a very creditable 9th in the Earl Roberts with a score of 766. He had one bad diagram at 100 yard which if it had been similar to his others would have placed him 3rd or 4th.
Rob also shot for the victorious England team in the Home International.
We should also congratulate Tony for coming 3rd in his Class in Competition 1 and 3rd in the Veterans.
In all a very successful week for our two Dorset shooters, so why not join them next year? you never know you may enjoy it and without support the meeting will not survive. A full set of results are available on the NSRA web site.
Attached the results for this meeting.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to the caterers and those who turned up on Saturday to help with the range construction. Also to those who dismantled it on Sunday with perfect timing just before the rains came down – and come down they did.
