Round 6 of the Compass 2017 series. 28-12-17

One of the most enjoyable club events I can ever remember on Berrow Hill saw unbroken sunshine and very light wind on a crisp winter’s day.

The day started with chef Mick Boswells free barbeque and tea/coffee, which went down a treat, just the job to fuel hungry competitors and, after the safety speech from Perry Broad, the shoot got underway.

Top score of the day was a superb 57 by Dan McMahan, followed by Bill Birch and Kev Brooks on 55, while Stew Powell topped the recoil class with 50, and Ethan Pantlng lead the junior class with 52.

Positions on count back.

Round 5 of the Compass 2017 series

The weather forecast was not good, from the course setters perspective, that is, with little or no wind, and the forecast proved right. Nonetheless, the day dawned bright, cold, and turned into a beautiful sunny autumnal day.

In the open class, Tony Male top scored with 56, one point ahead of Stuart James, Mick Boswell and Dan McMahan, while Perry Broad led the recoil class with 53, followed by Stu Hill, Andrew Timmins and Stew Searle on 49.

Nomads HFT hosted the annual AirGun Forum meet recently. This year it was decided by the organiser that all proceeds should go to St Richards Hospice. As such, many cash raising enterprises took place, with a total just short of £900 raised. 
On completion the Nomads committee discussed with the organiser the amount, and agreed to make a donation to round this up to £1000.

Please see below from Mick Boswell, A huge amount of thanks and gratitude has to be extended to Mick for all his efforts to such a worthwhile cause. Hopefully we can help such a worthy cause again in the future.

Today I was invited to visit St Richards Hospice in Worcester, the beneficiary of the funds raised during the AGF summer meet. It is the first time I have ever visited a hospice; it’s a beautiful place and the short tour helped me understand a little about where your generosity went. I imagine a thousand pound is relatively small in the way of overall contributions but they made me feel like we had raised so much more; the staff were truly grateful and surprised at what we have raised. We estimated £400 so getting this much is astounding and it’s thanks to you and the sponsors that today we can say we made a difference to the lives of people we will never know.

Here is a picture of me in the grounds with Fundraiser Alice Brunt who supported us all the way with our efforts.

Nomads Compass Round Three 16-07-17

The wind was light for much of the third round of this year’s compass series, but just enough to cause some problems on a course for which the setters had pulled out all the stops.

Ryan Ashman triumphed with a magnificent 58, four points ahead of Bill Birch, with Stew Hill taking the recoil class ahead of Stew Searle on count back with 46.

Tony Male won the Bonus Bunny and, were there a prize for complaint of the day, it would have gone to Ash Bailey, who complained that some of the targets were 'in the wrong places', and should have been an inch or so left, right, high or low. 

Places on count back.

Many thanks to all who attended, and to the course setters.


The forecast rain arrived on time but was light, the wind forecast proved an underestimate, making a tough course extremely challenging for the second round of Nomads Compass Series.
Stu James and Tony Male lead the open class with 55 apiece, with Dan McMahan and Adrian Tye just one point behind, and it was good to see Perry Broad back on form to lead the recoiling class with 51.

The day dawned cold but dry, with light wind that was still enough to cause problems on some lanes.

We used the course layout from the Boxing Day shoot, but with every target either moved or changed by Stu Hill and Perry Broad. The lads obviously did a cracking job, judging by the scores today, and by the many complimentary comments afterwards.

Elliott Compton top scored with 52, followed by Simon Francis on 50, and Stu Hill, who pipped Lee Malpass and Perry Broad on countback with 47.

All scores on countback.

Nomads 'Boxing Day' shoot, 2016

We were blessed with a beautiful, crisp Winter's day for this year's 'Boxing Day shoot. We used the same course layout as our recent Compass shoot, but every target had been moved, changed, or both, making the most of what little wind there was.

Not content with putting in a perfect five 100% scoring rounds in this year's Compass, Stuart James romped home with 58, followed by Elliot Compton, Tony Male, Bill Birch and Mick Boswell with 55 apiece. In the well attended recoiling class, Perry Broad took the honours with 51, and top junior was Jesse Rae on 31.
