    What a truly wonderful day! Granted, some of you may have noticed a hint of mud here and there, but we got everyone safely out of the car park and on their way – we always do.

    The course was in the woods, offering plenty of tricky elevated shots and, with no leaf on the trees, little to get in the way of the infamous Nomads wind, which left many wondering why the string blew sideways but the pellet flew straight, or vice versa.

    Top score of the day was an outstanding 56 by Kathy Thompson, closely followed by Sam Hemmings on 55, and in turn by Jacob Panting and Dave Ramshead on 54. Top springer score was 50 from Perry Broad and Nick Stanhope, with Perry ahead on count back, and Frank snapping at their heels.

    And so to the thanks. A huge amount of thought goes into the route for each course, the placement of each and every target, and a huge amount of work goes into turning it all into reality, so thanks to Dave, Stu and Perry. Thanks also to our treasurers John and Lee, who not only handled the booking in, but also arranged the wonderful food, which was superbly cooked by Frank.

    Not least, thanks to everyone who came to Nomads today, some travelling considerable distances. The club arranges the course, but it’s you who make the event. EDIT: Also many thanks to those who brought prizes for the raffle.

    Wishing you all a Happy New Year, from all at Nomads.

    Thanks again all involved with Nomads, always one of our favourite shoots of the year.
    A really well set course, every target needed plenty of respect.....it would have been a course truly worthy of a national comp, enough said!
    Well done Kathy, brilliant shooting again:):)

    Great day thanks guys. The course setting team has kept there high standards right to the end of the year.
    The courses have teased tickled and frustrated the best shooters in the country but above all brought us all together.
    Thank you for a fantastic year and look forward to seeing you all next year.:D
