I am honoured to have been selected by the Council of the NRA to be Captain of the Great Britain Target Rifle Team to the USA and Canada in 2021.  I am delighted to be joined by Gary Alexander (G.B. and Ireland) as my Vice Captain and David Rose (G.B. and England) as Adjutant.

We have been informed that there is to be an America Match at Camp Atterbury in early August.  Thus our “pre tour” shoot becomes something rather more than a “friendly” visit to a Canadian province before moving to Ottawa to compete in the DCRA annual meeting.  Dates are not confirmed, but we are likely to depart the UK in early August and return on or near the late bank holiday week end.

The team will number twenty members.  I intend to take a core of very experienced shooters and coaches, the Americans are hard to beat on their own ground.  I also intend to take some new caps. Final team selection will be announced after the 2020 meeting.

I am aware that problems with the ammunition used during the Imperial meeting for the last two years may well have artificially depressed results.  To that end, please include open meeting results that would be of interest where recently issued GGG ammunition was NOT used.  I would be grateful if County Captains would also please let me know of team members who are worthy of consideration – for example shooters who shoot excellent elevations but are not experts at coaching themselves.

A squad will be selected in Spring 2020 and there will be training week ends probably in October 2020 and in April, May or June 2021. I would encourage squad members to shoot in as many open meetings before the next year’s Imperial.

Please send your application to me by email to andrewlothian01@gmail.com as soon as possible, but by March 31st 2020, including a short CV of your shooting achievements.

 

Andrew Lothian, Team Captain
