In order to maintain healthy competition within the club, a ranking system has been introduced. At all competitions/range days, members will be competing within their class. This means that, for instance, the Tyro Trophy can only be won by those who are of the OSRA rank of Tyro.
A Class: Pegasus – elite shooters, who have represented OSRA to a remarkably high level. These are the best marksmen and women that OSRA has to offer. It is expected that Pegasus shooters will compete in major county matches, such as the KGV and the Inter-Counties, and aspire to one day shoot nationally.
B Class: Tyro – shooters who have met the standard of representing OSRA at a major competition (e.g. the Imperial or a Kent shoot). These are talented shooters who show potential, and have shown improvement from their school days at Sutton Valence.
C Class: those who are neither A nor B class – the entry level.
