GBPRA Affiliate Membership Programme

 

The GBPRA is committed to increasing the amount of appropriate Precision Rifle (PR) venues, which is a key element in growing the sport for all participants and fans. It is also committed to encouraging participation of individuals at all levels and in all formats.

Having more PR match providers and venues will also increase opportunities for more GB shooters to accrue points towards IPRF Events.

In order to do this it is imperative that we involve all event organisers, range owners and Home Office Approved Shooting Clubs. The aim is for such affiliates to host events, working within the guidance supplied by the International Precision Rifle Federation (IPRF) in order for any competitions to allow shooters to accrue points that can contribute to the GBPRA leader-boards. This will ultimately increase the opportunities for selection of shooters to represent GB at IPRF World Championship events.

To this end the GBPRA has released its ‘Affiliate Membership Programme’:

·        We are now welcoming applications from prospective ‘Affiliate Members’.

·        If accepted, these Affiliate Members are required to pay a £50 (GBP) fee per annum.

·        Affiliate Members would then be able to hold events with strict GBPRA guidance and oversight; that can be considered qualifying events for the purposes of the GBPRA leader-boards. Such guidance and oversight relates to the suitability of venue, course of fire and the scoring system(s) used. This is not an exhaustive list. Failure to adhere to this guidance could result in the withdrawal of such membership.

·        Any full GBPRA individual member is able to use such events to accrue points counting towards the GBPRA leader-boards and ultimately selection to represent GB at IPRF events. Non-GBPRA members are welcome to shoot events run by Affiliates but individual scores will not be collected unless they are individual GBPRA members prior to the event. This is critical for data protection.

·        The fees recouped from the Affiliate Programme are being used to generate a pool of targetry and shooting / stage props which can be loaned to Affiliate Members for free, in order for them to run events at minimal cost.

·        The GBPRA will seek to provide RO’s and adjudicators in support of all Affiliate events at no cost to the member(s) where possible.

·        As well as running IPRF qualification events ‘Affiliate Membership’ would allow access to the website forum and scoreboards.

·        Affiliate Members can take part in inter-club competitions in various calibers and disciplines.
