A group of our top competitive shooters took part in the 2019 National Championships held in the Munster Club on the 9/10th November and the BRC Club on the 23rd November. The pistol and Gallery Rifle events were held in Munster and the Sporting Rifle events were held at BRC. These finals are by invitation only and you earn a place by competing in at least three of the regional club competitions throughout the year. Only the top 10 shooters in each discipline are invited each year.
I am delighted to be able to say that 5 of our members earned 9 medals between them, 3 Gold, 3 Silver and three Bronze.
