NRANZ History Photo Book

Posted by Default Admin

The NRANZ is compiling a photo book about Fullbore Target Shooting in New Zealand to help raise funds and to try to preserve some of our history. 

The aim is to have these books ready to sell at 2014 Nationals.

We would like to include 1-2 pages of text and photos on each rifle club.  We invite clubs to participate and help provide content for their club pages as follows:

  1. Location: Where is the club located? So we can mark your location on a NZ map
  2. Established: What year was the club established?  Is there any significant history around its establishment?
  3. Club Amalgamations: Have any other clubs been merged with your club?
  4. Club Crest: Does you club have a club crest?
  5. Range Photo: We would like to include a photo of every range in NZ.
  6. Club History: Information that you have on the history of your club.
  7. Ballinger Belt Winners:Has anyone from your club won the Ballinger Belt? Could you email a photo of them wearing the belt or in the chair?
  8. NZ Representatives: Any NZ representatives since 2009?
  9. Photos: High resolution photos are needed, photos of your range and your shooters
  10. Text Content: 400-500 words

Club Secretaries have been asked to email submissions to the NRANZ Publicity Officer Karyn Flanagan or contact her on 04 478-2690 before 31 October 2013.

We are also accepting submissions from individuals.

Please Note: Inclusion of text and photo submissions will be at the discretion of the editor, and before printing this book it will be approved by Council.

We've already had a great response from some clubs, we know you're all very busy people but this book is shaping up to look really good and it's going to be a great seller, so don't miss out.
