TEST – District Shooting Competition

February 26 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


The District are running Air Rifle Shooting Competition which any Cub, Scout, Explorer or Young Leader can participate in. The idea behind the sessions are to give young people in the district the opportunity to have a taster of the activity, and see how well they can do. If interested they can attend and shoot regularly aat our District Air Rifle Shooting Club. Target shooting is an internationally-recognised sport which features in both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games and is great way for young people to learn focus, discipline and attention to detail. It is also of course extremely fun and gratifying when you hit something!

Participation in multiple shooting competition or club events will count towards the Master at Arms badge.

09:15am – 10:15am
