Default National Introductory HFT & FT day in 2016?

Here an idea, what's your thoughts on pro's & cons?

National Introductory Hunter Field Target & Field Target weekend

The basis of the idea:

choose a weekend in 2016 (which does not clash with any National or Regional comps - could be difficult finding a spare weekend I know)

Every HFT & FT club sets that weekend aside to set out a visitors/introductory shoot, with plinking and basic course.

Club members are encouraged to invite and bring visitors, provide equipment etc

Announced on all the Forums, gun shops, other target clubs, shooting magazines etc for visitors to come and give the sport a try

Could coincide with 'National shooting week' which is run by and is normally late spring


encourage more people of all ages to the sport, especially those that have thought about it but never stepped over the line

follows the adage 'we are more powerful together than alone' which will help to give the sport a national focus

feedback appreciated and if supported ideas on how it can be brought together and made to happen?

Default Target the right punter

How about putting a have a go advert at scout groups and schools.
I know of an individual that was introduced to shooting to keep him out of trouble ,he turned out to be a fine young man
I would be more than happy to help out at such an event , maybe I could teach Jedclampit all about FT or is he beyond help
About as much use at field target , as a life guard at the Olympic swimming pool.

Think it's a great Idea Tony, most new shooters are nervous about their first comp shoot (as I remember) anything that brings new shooters to the sport can't be bad thumbs up from me

Nomads have been invited to put on an open day event at Easter at the Cob-House for the local scouts and schools. This means we get to draw in new young blood from the local community and hopefully the parents at the same time. Good to give something back. Nice idea Tony.
