What better way to unwind after a hard day at school than with an assessment? 

This one was a little bit different, though. After an 8 week course, a group of Cowbridge Scouts completed their final assessment of the National Smallbore Rifle Association's Youth Proficiency Scheme.

As well as learning how to cope with the small bore air rifles, the Scouts had to prove their marksmanship and be examined on their knowledge of the law and shooting competition rules.

Everybody completed the course successfully gaining a minimum of "Skilled Shot" in the final assessment. There were also a couple of "Marksmen" and one "Expert Shot" awarded.

Of course, the pressure is on now - we're expecting great results in next years Area shooting competitions!
