A round peg in a round hole

Posted by Jason Price on Saturday, March 15, 2014, In : Airsoft Politics 
We've been busy recently with the media, both intentionally and unintentionally!

A common question from magazines is 'how does your probationer system work'?

Well its not a system set in stone, however the basic principals of the system is to ensure when a new player is offered membership, its their honesty, their integrity, and their personality that matches what the team is looking for.

If it is an existing player turning up with skirmish experience, then the main aim is for them to play along...

For Better or for worse?

Posted by Jason Price on Monday, March 10, 2014, In : Airsoft Politics 

First and Only ran a very good article last week on whether Politicians or Bad Sportmanship is the biggest danger to our beloved sport, and it did make you wonder.
As a team we have seen it twice at our local sites over the last couple of months, where visiting teams from outside the area do not play ball on honesty, and more importantly are frankly abusive to other players.
Last weekend was stressful with the injury to Alex, however the day was already marred by a group of players dressed up a...

Sennybridge Cancelled

Posted by Jason Price on Thursday, February 27, 2014, In : Airsoft Politics 
Gutted isn't the word, Landmark (the Ministry of Defence Land Agency) has cancelled Sennybridge, and BRIT TAC must be pulling their hair out.

Cope Hill was cancelled and moved to May due to being double booked, then it was cancelled  and moved to Sennybridge due to Cope Hill refurbishment. Now due to 'operational needs' it has been cancelled completely.
Companies such as Stirling and BRIT TAC must be sick to the teeth! Yes the MOD sites are brilliant due to the nature of the sites, however the ...

Summer Holidays over!

Posted by Jason Price on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, In : Airsoft Politics 
It is a little weird how when we hit the school holidays, it becomes so difficult to organise a team get together. However it didn't mean there was a lack of shooting, just a little disjointed and spread out. Squads of SSAS members visited Skirmish and MAW on numerous occasions, with Dan Sneath representing us at the National Airsoft Event, and by all accounts, its a vast improvement on the previous years.

Shadow Stalkers Chairman

11 years in the regular Army Air Corps, followed by 6 years as an Officer in the Royal Air Force Reserves.

Now working as a Secondary School Science Teacher.

Started importing airsoft guns pre-UKARA to be used for Cadet training purposes, and the hobby followed from there!

Formed Shadow Stalkers as a Cadet Training Team, to give those wanting to join the Armed Forces, a taster of what was expected. This gave the cadets a major advantage, and out of the 60 cadets who attended the course, there was a 100% success rate in those who went to serve in the Queens uniform.

After leaving the R.A.F.R., Shadow Stalkers was rebooted as an Airsoft Team, following the same ethos of the original team, in training to succeed.
