It is with sadness that I announce the passing of a good friend and FT shooter Nick who passed away this morning.
Whilst not a member of the club, he was instrumental in my FT journey when living on the island and a member of Vectis FTC at both Northwood and Arreton.
This was a friend who shooting was better than mine and the only way to get near him was practice, practice and practice some more. I used to shoot over 500 pellets a week, or half a box of Premier 7.9s, just to get near him.
Seeing him shoot for fun, driving an old dumped truck like a looney and the fishing trips bring back good memories.
Some members knew him and could tell some stories.
RIP Nick and you will be missed.
