Last Saturday shooting competitions in 10m Air-Rifle and Air-pistol were held at the Bidnija Indoor Shooting Range. Many of the participating athletes showed good progress in their preparation for the oncoming European Small States Games and this reflected in their high scores. It is also with great pleasure to note that our lady shooters won first place in both the Air-Rifle & Air-Pistol ‘mixed’ competitions with some excellent shooting.
