I have just returned from a day’s shooting at Egton Manor in Yorkshire, which was fantastic due to your sound advice. My shooting was excellent and the hit rate was incredible just slightly over 2:1 and there were a considerable number of high birds. On one drive the host, who had been watching, passed comment with “you do not raise your gun quickly but when you do, you take the bird“.
When we first met and you persuaded me to switch from left to right, I thought it was slightly mad! (I’m sorry but on that first day I did question if you made any sense). However after six lessons I feel more comfortable and at each outing I am improving, so I’m sorry for questioning your advice and looking forward to the next lesson.
For anyone else who has to go through the change I would simply tell them to have faith.
In your old club house and now in the very chique new building!
Thank you for all the lessons over all the years and also for the friendship and the good take care from Claire!
The manner and openness of all the instructors and staff is spot on and skilled in the way they are able to read what approach will work with who. I am continuing with my coaching as it’s categorically reaping rewards and bags of enjoyment for me.
We were all amazed at your speed and perception in diagnosing faults, your early manner in explaining how to correct these faults, and more importantly (at our age!!) the realization that we were in the company of someone with such knowledge, and therefore our willingness not only to listen, but to act to correct these faults. You are an exceptional coach. Coupled with your general knowledge of guns and shooting, together with your hospitality, this made for a very rewarding afternoon. We will be back!!
I learnt so much such as shooting clay pigeons and clay rabbits. I really hope to come again with my sister Storm next time. My grandpa is still talking about how good it was. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Nick Hollick was excellent, very patient, very good listener and a great trainer. He really wanted us all to learn and succeed and he boosted our confidence by regularly praising us. The venue was good and the guns were easy enough to use.
The lunch was brilliant; The entire team was friendly and very hospitable towards us, a great day out, thank you.
Nick was extremely patient with our group and his encouragement and knowledge of shooting techniques were exceptional.
The food was super and finished the morning session off really well and the whole event from start to finish was well worth it. Only pity is that they are too far away for me to use on a regular basis.
The catering staffs willingness to oblige coupled with the excellent fresh food and beverages provided through out made the networking with others attending just a memorable day ….. thank you
I was very impressed by the level of patience shown to the non shooters and the level of thought given to the safety of all participants. Bacon rolls are always a good way to start your day and the lunch provided was very good also.
In all they did you proud by providing a first class service. Shame about my shooting though.
