Three lady members of the Eastbourne Rifle Club – Linda Smallbone, Sue Thomas and Sara Marshall - recently took part in the week long Scottish Small-Bore Rifle Championship at Dumfries.
On nearing their destination, they were the innocent victims of a three-car collision.
Luckily, they were not seriously injured and proceeded to the venue in a replacement car.
As a result of their shooting, all three were selected in a team of five to represent England in the Home Countries Ladies Match against Scotland. England won the match and the ladies returned home with both good and bad memories of their trip north of the border.
