National Crossbow Federation’s 10m National Shoot
Rugby Sport for the Disabled members Malcolm Scott and Iris Bingham won Gold and the National Assisted titles at the National Crossbow Federation’s 10m National shoot held at Streetly at the weekend. Graeme Mooney achieved Silver.
To score a ten at this unique shoot, the bolt must be completely inside, and not touching the two and a half centimetre ten circle. Competitors must shoot one bolt in each of the four 25cm target faces.
Graeme said: “I really enjoyed the shoot but it was very frustrating and I had to concentrate very hard”. Iris added: “It is quite strange to shoot four bolts every end and not three as usual. Many of my shots needed the judge to use a magnifying glass to see if the bolt was touching the line.” Malcolm said that despite the poor light and the cold, he was reasonably pleased with the result.
The National Crossbow Federation held an AGM during the lunch break where Iris presented the annual accounts.

Lady Tournament: Gold: Iris Bingham 383+390=773.
