    Default Funding in the UK

    The National Smallbore Rifle Association has received a grant of +_ R12 million rand to develop target shooting at grassroots level from Sport Enlgand.

    Another grant received totalled +_ R4.5 Million.

    Hopefully next year we at SASSU will receive funding from our Government to develop at grassroots level.

    Bearing in mind that SANSSU has never received funding from Government and still manages to compete and sometimes beat their British counterparts is an exceptional achievement!

    In the big picture here, shooting gets the small change too !

    You would faint if you saw the millions of pounds the cyclists are getting !!!!

    The entire team , riders and non riders all earn a good salary !!!

    But if the medals dont flow, the money will dry up , like shooting, sadly.

    Our government would discourage any form of shooting, unless a hijacking or an armed robbery is involved of course.

    Pretty sure the funding would have to go through about 20 departments before reaching SANSSU, leaving you the grand amount to fund.............................................. ..........

    One box of ammo.

    yeah well put guys I doubt that SANSSU will get any funding

    it is the same with RC flying the government does not fund SAMAA but expects them to provide teaching to the under privilaged. the field I fly at the rental costs have jus been increased as well. BTW RMAC aint far from the rand water board range
