A brief History

Representatives of 14 countries competing in the Palma and Individual  Long Range World Championship Matches in Bloemfontein, South Africa, met on 8 April 1999 and agreed to investigate the formation of an International body. A steering committee was formed, chaired by Deon Burger of South Africa, and comprised representatives from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand and South Africa. A draft Constitution was written and approved by early 2002 and finalised at the first Council meeting of the Confederation during the staging of the Palma and Individual  Long Range World Championships at Bisley, United Kingdom in July 2003 when ICFRA was formally inaugurated. Stan Frost of Canada was elected first President and Colin Cheshire, Great Britain, was appointed as Secretary-General.

ICFRA is a confederation of independent autonomous national fullbore rifle associations and is the only World-wide body for the promotion of fullbore rifle shooting. It is the successor to the Palma Council. Its aims are set out in the Constitution and include the standardisation of fullbore rifle shooting rules and the promotion and control of international matches at World level.

Contact: ICFRA is not a members' association but is controlled by its constituent National Rifle Associations and is operated by unpaid volunteers. All contact is to be made through a Councillor representing a specific NRA. Links to the NRAs are shown under LINKS.
