District Success in County Scout Shooting Competition

The annual County Scout Shooting Competition was held at the 1st Taverham Scout HQ on Saturday 7th October when 13 teams from 7 Districts took part. Despite cold wet weather, the spirit of the scouts were high and they completed keenly in four disciplines – rifle standing, rifle kneeling, rifle prone and pistols. The 8 scouts who represented Northern Norwich District did well with the two teams finishing first and second in the competition.

The results were:
1st     Northern Norwich “1”       1084
2nd   Northern Norwich “2”         907
3rd    North East Norfolk “1”        876

Arianna Stanton (1st Horsford & St Faiths) was the winner in the highest individual score competition with a score of 375, while two other scouts from the District, Joel Starling (1st Horsford & St Faiths) finished 4th with a score of 298, while William Dingle (11th Norwich) was fifth with a score of 261.

All the scouts shot really well.  The highest positioned scorers in the four disciplines were:

Rifle (Standing)
4th       Arianna Stanton    56

Rifle (Kneeling)
1st       Joel Starling          101
2nd     Arianna Stanton    98

Rifle (Prone)

Pistols
1st     Arianna Stanton    120
2nd   Anastasia Killow     118
4th    William Dingle        113

Thanks go to the leaders who supported the scouts in their preparations and to leaders from the District who supported the organising and delivery of the event.
