  1. Richard Tarpy

    Great course, amazing instructor and a fantastic weekend! Thanks a lot Ray, looking forward to coming back and getting that practice in.

  2. Nathan Harris

    Just completed the level 3 Wilderness Skills Range Instructor Course designed completely by Ray himself, and as I’ve come to expect from him he has done yet another fantastic job.His teaching methods are second to none and this course covers everything you would need to know if you ever wished to run such an activity yourself. He covers the background knowledge regarding legalities and law aswell as addressing issues (primarily safety) when it comes to setting up a range an ultimately how to coach your customers into achieving a consistent technique to stick the target with whatever implement they are throwing from axes to knives. Excellent job as always and I look forward to the next one.
