I was privileged to attend a Wonderboom clinic at the lovely facilities of SA Hunters today.
Parents and scholars had pitched their tents and spent the previous evening on the site. A few caravans too.
Piet Breedt gave a much appreciated lecture in the art of Field Target shooting. It is always great to see somebody who has the graciousness to put back into the sport the experience that which has taken him a long and thankless road to achieve. Good stuff!
Nic Roets presented the SA Hunters theme for the year based on "respect "and reaffirmed SA Hunters committment to youth development. Nic has for many years shown a remarkable skill in presenting environmental issues to our young people and his knowledge of the shooting sports and the general shooting scene in South Africa is unsurpassed. The kids love him!!!!! Nic is also in the forefront of a development in sports shooting which will benefit all of us. As a co-founder of FT in South Africa it must please him to no extent when these events take place on his home turf.
Wyan Schoonwinkel and his team must be thanked for what they have done for making this event possible and so successfull as all their other endeavours are also proving to be. These guys live for the sport and I am sure the kids and parents at Wonderboom are most grateful to them.
That the partnership is working and beneficial to all parties involved is obvious.
Keep up the good work.
