Default Alex Boddy

With great sadness I've been informed that Alex slipped away quietly this morning.

Alex was an enthusiastic FT shooter who enjoyed all aspects of the sport, and his contagious and ever present energetic enthusiasm will be missed, both in Sefta where he spent many years, and in Csfta's Meon Valley, where he moved to recently.

Condolences to Judit, his family and friends.

Really, really sad news. Alex was still a relatively young man and when I last spoke to him he was busy planning his FT comeback. Such a sudden and tragic decline in someone who for all the world was an other wise healthy, active, intelligent and funny bloke. A good guy and a good shooter; we'll miss you mate, RIP. Thoughts and prayers with Judit and Alex's family.

I met Alex when I did a bit of FT & he was a very nice & helpful chap, really sorry to hear this news, thoughts are with Judit & the family at this sad time.
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.

Default Sad News

Sad news this....shot with him twice on two seperate GP`s and certainly came across as a really nice and friendly chap.

I didn't go to Norway to look at rocks & water youth, I went to shoot.
