District Archery

Posted on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Sunday 19th saw Southampton City District do, for the first time,  the Scout completion which took on much the same format as the Cub with the additional activities also being available throughout the day. This was attended by 14 scouts from 5 Troops.  shooting at the greater distance of 16 meters, 840 arrows were loosed.  Stuart Ganney (ADC Scouts) presented the team trophy for the first time to the 13th Sea Scouts with the individual gold medal going to Gregg Budd from the 13th, Silver going to Jake Casey of  the 13th and Bronze going to Zak also from the 13th.   A great day was had by all and the Scouts seem to feed back that they had a very enjoyed day. My thanks go to all those leaders that helped out on both days with the scoring.

Please remember that the District have all their own archery equipment and you can book this by contacting me by e-mail cubs@22ndscouting.org.uk or by Tel: 07976810094. There are a number of HQs throughout the district which are suitable for shooting indoors and the 22nd now have an excellent outdoor range so try and make use of this during the summer months.
