Civilian Service Rifle competition Bisley 2nd March

Ah! Looks like a pair of knowledgeable types...
Perhaps you can help.
Have been looking into various shooting disciplines on the NRA website and have had my interest "tweaked" by the "Service Rifle" category.
Problem is, trying to get info/advice on starting up hasn't been as easy as finding out about the disciplines themselves. Any suggestions of websites/organisations/groups worth looking at?
Thanks in advance.

Send a PM with a rough indication of your location. I'm not too up on Wurzelshire - (Although there is a good rifle club in Borchester.. ;) )

A lot of the AR 15 crowd can found on here :roll: bless em! http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=8&f=5

the old farts tend to shoot Lee Enfields; well me and EX_STAB for starters but as the discipline improves (cheaper entries and acomodation) I may shift from "historical" class to "any iron" and use an L39 with service sights.
I can thoroughly recomend it.

If it really starts to dominate civvy shooting (as it should) I might even design a new service rifle ;)

How much prize money do you think would be needed to encourage interest?

£500? £1000, £2000?

Too busy I'm afraid!
edited to add, when I'm not working as at the moment then everyone wants my weekend time and as some are willing to pay they take precedence.

Full results on the ARA website.
