Kibworth Gun Club hosted the 25th Anniversary Disabled Shooters Group Open Registered Shoot.

Well done to Craig Williams for his Amazing score of 88/100 taking High Gun in Disabled Standing and DSG overall High Gun. Adrian Last received his award for 25 years of outstanding service as well as taking High Gun for Disabled Sitting.

In the Open competition Olly Bradshaw scored a credible 98/100 for overall High Gun, beating Ben Husthwaite into 2ndon 97.

Our member, Paul Rendall, who has been involved for many years with this group, presented the prizes.

This group of shooters require a complex coaching regime to meet their individual needs. Perhaps those coaches who have worked with members of this group and other disabled shooters might share their experiences and techniques with members of the Institute.
