HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Imperial Meeting Online Entry
The Imperial Meeting online entry for target rifle, match rifle and F Class is now up and running. Please visit the NRA website and click on the link on the home page.

All entries received by Friday 9 March will be entered into the draw for entry number 1.

In order to encourage competitors to enter online, there will be an additional Early Entry Online Draw for all entries over £100 received by Monday 2 April 2012. One prize of £100 will be awarded to one online entry drawn at random after this closing date.

Pre-Grand Competitions
To encourage entries to the Pre-Grand competitions, we have held the prices for Block B at the 2011 prices. Please support this initiative by entering these competitions.

Other entry forms
Entry forms for Team Matches (including Schools Veterans), Pistol and Gallery Rifle, Any Rifle (MR), Civilian Service Rifle and the Imperial Historic Arms Meeting will be available for download from the NRA website during the next few weeks.

Please be patient as it will take some time to finalise some of the forms but they should all be available by the end of April except for the IHAM entry form which should be available by early May.

There are still many competitions which are not sponsored, and you are invited to consider whether any firms, companies or individuals you know might like to sponsor, or present a trophy for, a competition in the Imperial Meeting. Full details of the advantages for sponsoring firms and the packages available, are available from Amanda Vaughan on ext 135 or e-mail as soon as possible.

Squadding Card Adverts
We also have opportunities to advertise on the back of the Imperial Meeting squadding cards. These cards will be seen by around 1200 TR and F Class competitors during the Imperial Meeting (and let's face it they can't help but read your advert whilst in the queue to collect their ammunition!)

The price per squadding card is £90 plus VAT.

We can design an advert for you if you supply the text and graphics or we can supply sample cards if you want to design your own advert. Bookings will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

So why not advertise your business, product, shooting event or club membership to exactly the sort of shooter you want to attract?

If you are interested in this advertising opportunity then please contact Karen Robertson at as soon as possible.
