He has been a stalwart of relations between the NRA and DCRA, was involved in Canadian shooting for many years fostering competition between GB and Canada; and held many positions including Commandant of the Canadian Bisley Team and Match Director for the successful Long Range World Championships and the Palma Match in 2007.
