From Andrew Webber:

I want to thank, both personally and on behalf of the Association, Mr. John Marshall. 

John has advised the Board of Directors that he will be retiring from the position of Section Chairman for the Fullbore Target Rifle Section at the end of the 2014 shooting season. 

John has been a Member of the Nova Scotia Rifle Association since the mid 1950’s and has been a driving force in the sport for many, many years. John’s numerous successes in his shooting career began with qualifying for the Canadian Rifle Team to Bisley in 1956 and have continued as recently as his win of the Purdy Match in October 2014. During this career, John has won every NSRA Fullbore Target Rifle match on multiple occasions, including the individual Provincial Championship nine times. John has been a member of the Canadian Rifle Team to Bisley in each of the last seven decades and has served as both Adjutant and Commandant. 

John has also served terms as President and Vice President of the Nova Scotia Rifle Association and has been a member of Dominion of Canada Rifle Association Council for many years. Most recently, John has served the NSRA as a Board Member and has worked tirelessly for many years as a Section Chairman. 

John: thank you for your service to the Association and to the sport.

Andrew S Webber
President NSRA

Hello Fellow Northerners; 
I hope you are enjoying time on the range with no flies. For those who are in more temperate areas you don't know what you’re missing.

One quick request before the update. It's the New Year and your membership is due. If you haven't yet had a chance, go to and print off the applicable membership form then fill it out and get it in the mail. You'll have it done, the people that process it will thank you and you will avoid the late charge on individual memberships. (New this year). I know everyone understands this is the time to get as much of the administration work done as possible. As you know the RNBRA buys insurance for all regular members and it runs from April 1st till March 31 which is our fiscal year. Renewing your membership now will cut down on the administration and cost associated with late renewal.
