GBGR Team Captain 2023 – Nominations sought

Team Captain Invitation

Published on:


Nominations are sought for the role of “Captain of the Great Britain Gallery Rifle Team”, for next season. Appointments run annually, from Jan to Dec, although traditionally the appointments can last for two (or more) years, subject to re-endorsement by the NRA Council, on the recommendation of the GR&P Working Group.

It is recognized that the selection and appointment of the captain for a Great Britain team is a highly important decision. To be appointed captain is a great honour but it is also a great responsibility. The ability to create a winning team is not the only criterion needed for a successful captain. The manner in which the team conducts itself, both on and off the ranges, will affect the standing of the NRA, target shooting and indeed the country. It is therefore vital that the person selected should have the appropriate personality and skills to carry out all aspects of the task in the appropriate manner. The selection process, while being transparent and fair, should result in the appointment of someone who meets these requirements.

The criteria for selection are :

  1. Nominees must be full Members of the NRA for a minimum continuous period of 3 years before they become eligible for nomination and must remain so during the entire period of appointment. A nominee’s subscription (where appropriate) must be fully paid up at the date of nomination.
  2. Nominations must be supported by signatures of three NRA Members who have Gallery Rifle & Pistol as one of their declared disciplines and whose subscription (where appropriate) must be fully paid up at the date of nomination. However, nominations may not be supported by any current member of the GR&P Working Group (although any member may be nominated, including members of the working group)
  3. Candidate CV’s and nominations should be submitted in writing, bearing original or electronic signatures of the candidate and supporters and must reach the Secretary at the NRA Offices by 5pm on Thurs 4th August 2022.   Forms available for download below.

Nominations (Shooter CV and supporters) will be evaluated by the NRA Council during August and acceptable nominees are passed back to the GR&P Working Group for a final recommendation; the preferred nomination is then notified to the NRA Council for endorsement and formal appointment in October.

The announcement of the selected Captain for the upcoming year’s tours (as a minimum, events at Phoenix 2023, Ireland and Germany), will be made in the Winter NRA Journal.
