16th November 2019. Explorers and Scouts from across Widnes, Runcorn, Moore and Frodsham area represented Mersey Weaver District against 6 other District teams at the Cheshire Scouts Inter-District Competition held at Milldale Campsite near Crewe.

Over the 1 day competition, the team shot a total of 84 targets cards using 4 types of air pistols and air rifles, before finishing the day competing in an individual 10m knockout shoot.

The Mersey Weaver team achieved 3rd place in the rifle category which is a very commendable achievement as the team have only been shooting and training for just over a year.

In the individual knockout, Dan (4th Frodsham) achieved 3rd place in the under 14’s knockout.

If you are a Cub, Scout, explorer or Your Leader in Mersey Weaver and want to try shooting then book onto one of the open shoot sessions held on the second Saturday of most months run by our Target Sports ASU at the District Scout centre in Frodsham.
