|Shak Siyya joined the ISSF in April 2014 where he hosted his first event - the Shotgun World Cup in Tucson. He's since become one of the most recognised
Announcers in the sport, having hosted dozens of events at international, continental and local level.
Shak hosted Shooting at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the 2015 1st European Games and both the Olympic and Paralympic Games at Rio 2016.
Shak has recently expanded
his role within the sport to develop himself as a commentator for ISSF TV.
He is delighted to be hosting the Welsh Airgun 2017 where he finally gets to present Shooting closer to home!
Places still available on Womens Pistol, Womens Rifle and Mens Rifle.
The 2017 meeting will maintain the same format as 2016, with separate Olympic Finals this year being held in the Jubilee Hall on all three days.
One entry fee of £50.00 will cover entry for all three days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
A team competition (£6.00) will be held on the Saturday and the Welsh Closed Championships will be held on the Sunday.
The 2017 entry form and booklet are now available, with entries now being taken from International athletes. The release of the entry form for domestic athletes is 19th July 2017 - any forms received before then will be set aside and then entered into the system in the order they are received.
The entry form and booklet are now available from the Welsh Airgun 2017 web page.
The deadline for entries is 30th September 2017. Entries received after this date may not be processed, however, there will not be a late-entry charge so if someone does decide to try for an entry after 30th September they should telephone first as people have been known to cancel their entry shortly before the start of the competition.
Entries for some events will likely fill up quickly, so early application is advised.
An air rifle workshop will be held on Thursday 12th October 2017, run by Louise Richards (Minett).
