shoot2Our instructors introduction to the boom Stick

Jason treated the team to a morning’s clay pigeon shooting, which they all thoroughly enjoyed; some of our instructors were quite taken with it, almost forgetting about primitive weapons for just a moment in favor of this new found BOOM STICK!

Jason writes “I had the wonderful privilege of treating the full time instructors to a mornings shooting in gratitude for an exceptional year, followed by an afternoon of planning exciting adventures for the coming years… We’ve got some incredible stuff lined up for you for 2016/7!”
