Solihull Sports Day 2013

Ten RSDA members entered the Sports Day for the Disabled at Solihull and came home with two medals.

The event was organised by the Rotary Club of Solihull. Two of the club’s helpers, Bethan and John ran the Kurling and young Aurora helped with the Boccia Bowls competition.

Each competitor could choose two serious events and everyone was entered for the four ‘have-a-go competitions’ of Table Skittles, Mini Golf, Target Bean Bag and New Age Bowls. The Boccia, which was a knock-out competition, had about 40 entries.

Rugby’s members and helpers picked up many prizes on the raffle. Then, after five hours of competition, medal time arrived. Awards which were given for gold and silver only, were won by Alexander Powers, with silver in the Mini Golf and Iris Bingham with gold in the Boccia.

Rupert was third on the Mini-Golf and Iris third on Target Beanbag.
