Right On Target Open Boccia Championships 2019

Forth Valley Right On Target Boccia Club was delighted to host their open club championship for the sixth year in Stirling on Saturday. The event began with a fitting tribute to fondly remember Davie Lawrie, who brought boccia to the region and had many volunteering roles within Forth Valley Disability Sport. Fifty ? seven players, new and experienced, from nine branch areas across Scotland came to the Peak to compete in five categories for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.

The philosophy of the event was whether you are a player, coach or official you can develop your skills and knowledge in a supportive, encouraging environment. All lived up to this philosophy to make it a positive experience for all playing and supporting the event. Completed evaluation forms provided feedback stating the event was beneficial and valued by all attending.

The standard of play was high in every category with many games being so close that tie break situations had to be played to determine the winner. It was nice to welcome Lewis McConnel and Paul Currie back to the event. Notable performances were given by the Gold medalists in each category; Ryan Flynn, Hayden Keir, Lewis McConnel, Hannah Craig and Tyler McLelland. Competition was strong for them, but they kept their focus to keep winning against tough opponents.

Forth Valley Right On Target Boccia Club would like to thank all players, coaches, parents, carers, drivers and officials who made the event possible. If you or anyone you know would like to get involved as a player, coach, official or committee member with Right On Target Boccia Club please contact Jean Duncan.
