Marksmanship

Written by Victoria Ross

One of the Explorer programme activities on offer since September has been marksmanship. Taking place on a Friday evening a number of Explorer Scouts have been able try their hand at everything from archery to catapults, and air rifle shooting to laser quest.

The first marksmanship programme (September – October) finished with an Explorers vs Leaders archery competition! The Explorers won the first session of the competition, but the leaders pulled it back to win the second and clinch (a very close) overall win!

The final totals: Explorers 915 points vs Leaders 925 points.

But there’s still time for the Explorers to win the day … as there will be a second Explorer vs Leaders competition in December.

Watch this space for the final scores!
