RSDA members came back with two gold medals from the National Crossbow Federation’s Nuneaton shoot.

The event was held at Nuneaton Archer’s ground where archers, when experienced, can shoot every day. They cater for archery and crossbow. It was a near perfect day but windy at times.

Graeme Mooney said: “I really enjoyed the shoot and look forward to the August shoot there.” Iris Bingham added: “I have just started shooting my Tournament bow again and, although had a six month break and only one outdoor practice, my score showed I was back on track.”

RSDA assisted results were:

Tournament: Iris Bingham: 65m-259, 55m-278, 45m-285 = Total 822/900
