Annual Scout Intercounty Rifle and Pistol Shooting Competition

Explorers Scouts

The legacy of 3rd Hampton Hill shooting continues with, Issac G, Ruth H and Lilly P selected to represent Greater London South West (GLSW) at the Annual Scout Intercounty Rifle and Pistol Shooting Competition held at Aldersley on the 14th April 2013. The GLSW Squad Captain is Jean Jenkins of 2nd Malden Scouts who has been organising a team for a number of years from across the County that consistently does well; in 2011 saw an overall Bronze and in 2012 the team triumphantly returned with Gold medals having defeated the hot contenders by the narrowest of margins, 1 point!

For 2013 a mostly new GLSW squad was formed with intensive training taking place at Surbiton Postal Rifle Club during February and March. Despite the relative inexperience and youth of the team it was clear that there was plenty of talent heading to the Midlands on an early Sunday morning and although not in the medals this time they did not disappoint at all, coming a very credible 4th place out of 14 teams and only a few points off the Bronze medal spot.

Well done to Jean Jenkins and the whole GLSW squad and we look forward to seeing you back at the top in the future.
