MEMBERS of the 1st Lym Valley Scout Group recently visited The Tunnel Target Sports Centre, near Charmouth, as part of their Master at Arms Badge.
Ten Scouts were awarded the badge, which involves training for at least six sessions, learning how to shoot safely and taking part in competition against other Scouts.
The event also saw new Scout Libby invested into the troop at the end of evening, bringing the total number of Scouts to 20.
“It was a great evening; it takes a lot of effort to the Master at Arms badge so it was great to see for so many of them that the hard work paid off,” said assistant Scout leader Dave Wareham.
Leader Bruce Kahn added: “I’m glad to see the Scouts have enjoyed themselves tonight, we try and offer a range and activities and that’s what they really enjoy – the variety of it all.”
Shooting is one of the many activities on offer this term, alongside health and fitness, a night hike, Danish chair building, first aid and a weekend camp.
