# The RAN and RAAF Champion Shots Competitions were not conducted in 2001, 2002 or 2003.

They were cancelled because Small Arms Wing (Army) changed the format of the matches and set the entry qualification criteria for rifle at Live Fire (LF) 15 without consulting the other services.

The RAN and RAAF considered that they were given insufficient information in time for competitors to achieve that standard so they cancelled the competitions.
