The Young Shots Day held at Riseholme College recently proved to be a total success with about forty youngsters enjoying the day and many more on the waiting list for the next one.

BASC were delighted with the success of the event which was the most subscribed to in five years. In addition to the various elements of shooting, the young people on the course were also given a taste of archery, hunting with birds of prey and even ferreting.

“It was great to see those youngsters learning while having a great time,” said Dave Carter, of Lincolnshire Sports. “We are also very grateful to all those volunteers who came along to help. The response was really remarkable and we are really looking forward to the next one.”
