· ISSF Video of Changwon World Cup Finals
Thinking caps on! How do we run 25m RFP Finals on paper targets; and at what point do we call it quits for tied scores for 25m Womens Finals medal shoot-offs? (more, here)
· New PA Judges

o Ray Gray – PA Judge B, Service Pistol & Black Powder

· Some information on chamber/barrel indicator flags (ISSF Rule 220.127.116.11) – here
NOTE – this is for information only!
· E-mail notifications
I sent out an e-mail update notification today, and there were a number of ‘returns’. If you are on the notification list and did not get the notification, send me you current (new?) e-mail address.
· Call for Jury Nominations, Commonwealth Games, Glasgow (closes 15 March)
· PA Printing of the 2013 ISSF rule book
There are numerous typos and (how do I put it?) some areas of inconsistency in the ISSF’s 1st printing,
Rather than authorise a print run of the existing, somewhat flawed, rules the NRC intends to wait for the corrected version from the ISSF.
PA will not be adopting the ‘new’ rules until 2nd April 2013, but for those who want to be ‘prepared’:
o 2013 1st Printing available as a zipped pdf file. This is the complete 466 pages!
o Interim (not the final version!) RO Guides for 10m and 50m Pistol on paper targets (pdf)
o Explanation sheets for Finals (pdf)
o My extract of the bits that will affect ISSF pistol
o (Note that AISL AusCups will be to the new rules from AusCup 1 in February – more>)
o Most ranges will be able to accommodate “ATTENTION (7 seconds delay) for Rapid Fire Pistol when it is introduced by using the 8, 6 and 4 seconds settings on Service Pistol timers.

Please allow us a bit of time to reorganise the procedures for the dispatch of NRC items (rule books, etc.).
