Golds from Gloucester
Two RSDA members came away with a Gold medal from a National Crossbow Federation of GB shoot which was held at Gloucester.
The weather, which was sunny and very little wind, was ideal and everyone put in a good score. Kevin said: “I like to shoot outdoors especially when it’s not raining. I got a good score”.
