Pud Shoot, Wolverhampton

Rugby Sport for the Disabled archers and crossbow shooters came away with prizes of Christmas Puddings at the annual 18m ‘Pud Shoot’ and many raffle prizes too. This festive event, which attracted over 30 competitors, was held at the Wolverhampton Association for the Disabled Sports club.

Graeme said: “I was one point ahead of Mike and two points ahead of Malcolm after the 1st session. I found the concentration hard work to improve my score on the 2nd session and win that division”.

Archer Kevin Rumble said: “Wow, I’ve got 46 points more than last year”. Little did he know he would receive the ‘most improved trophy’.

The results out of 600 were:

Assisted Tournament Crossbow

Ladies: Iris Bingham: 1st 599 with 51 ring tens

Men: Rob Ledsham: 1st 591 with 43 ring tens

Assisted Sporting Crossbow

Graeme Mooney: 1st 586 with 26 ring tens

Mike Sheasby: 2nd 579 with 12 ring tens

Malcolm Scott: 3rd 573 with 30 ring tens

Stewart Morris: 318 with 1 ring ten

Archery: Kevin Rumble: 2nd 409

Michael Aldous: 113

On Saturday mornings at the Ken Marriott Leisure Centre, apart from the shooting, there are many sports for disabled people including Table Tennis, New Age Kurling, Boccia, Board Games, Darts, Pool, Swimming, Othello, Bagatelle and Dominoes. In January we hope to hold our annual Superstars event.

RSDA members wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
