Default Dave Harrison

FT Legend and one of the first guys to welcome me back to FT. Can't believe it's your funeral Monday Dave and I know a lot of the guys will be gutted not to be there as they are in Portugal. You won't be forgotten fella RIP.

At Pontefract ARC's 1st ever FT shoot at Hensall's shooting range on Sunday 9th June 1985 - 230 people shot the 30 target, (sadistic), course with swirling winds and 1 target that had to be taken lying down with the target just visible at the end of a 6 foot length of plastic drain pipe.
At the end of the competition there was a shoot off for 1st place between Dave Pope of Venom and Dave Harrison both on 20

Glad to say Dave Harrison won on that day.

Good memories

Mark.

Dave had a nice send off today and Bobby Banks did him proud. Members of the FT community who couldn't attend because of the worlds etc were nicely mentioned by his family.

So I think Dave would be happy for you guys to put your beer down get your flip flops and go and do what your there to do! Bring back the WC to England! And if we can't manage England then Great Britain will do!

Good luck guys and RIP Dave

Bobby certainly did Dave proud today, and Daves's wife and son made sure they thanked everyone who were able to attend and mentioned he would want you to do well in the worlds.


Good luck all X
