A first for Team Ethos and indeed Heckler & Koch and Qioptiq in supporting the disabled shooting and Inter-Services/International shooting event at Bisley. This, the 150th Anniversary of the Imperial Meeting, run and organised by the National Rifle Association (NRA) it was a humbling experience engaging with an enthusiastic group of veterans, many directly supported by BLESMA, competing for honours in a variety of challenging shoots. This special and auspicious occasion was generously sponsored through Team Ethos and allowed a significant rise in the overall experience with a fabulous lunch provided for all and the chance for many to crawl all over the displayed equipment.

Mon 24th saw the inter-services team event and international competition and again it was a significant game-changer for this prestigious event to have sponsorship allowing it to be presented on a whole new level. Teams from the USA, Canada, Serbia, Oman, UK and others were able to enjoy a brilliant event organised by the NRA and again really well supported by the teams from Heckler & Koch and Qioptiq. Many thanks for this great support which was very much appreciated by all.
