Championships (indoor): This produces the indoor individual champion for the year. There is one postal qualifying stage (two cards), and a final which is run on a knock-out basis for the best 16 qualifiers, two cards per round. There are concurrent Ladies, Junior and Veterans competitions based on the qualifying stage, and there are also two classes of Inexpert championships for those with lower averages. Championships (outdoor):This competition is run concurrently with the Unsquadded Aggregate at the National Smallbore Rifle Association's annual Scottish National meeting, held at different places in Scotland each year. This is because there are no outdoor ranges for smallbore rifle in Lothian, so the outdoor championship (which goes back many, many years) has to be shot elsewhere. There is a handicap competition as well as a scratch one.
Here are the County Champions for the season 2020-21. Archived results are here.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, none of the indoor championships were run this season, and as the NSRA’s 2020 Scottish Meeting was not held, there are no outdoor champions either and won’t be next season as their 2021 meeting was also cancelled. Roll on 2021-22.
