Default Emley does Moor......

Most of us in N.E.F.T.A have had a great HFT year and this has been largely thanks to Emley Moor. These last six weeks alone Julie and myself have attended Emley for at least FIVE HFT comps including the INTERS, THE MASTERS, two EXTREMES and the HFT CLASSIC and thanks to Emleys position at the forefront of Northern HFT I have had the opportunity to talk at shooters from first timers to World Champions (and Kieth Warbuton in between! ) all at Emley Moor. Of course N.E.F.T.A is at heart an FT organisation which makes Emleys efforts for HFT promotion even more a big thank you from all of us in N.E.F.T.A that have enjoyed a remarkable year for HFT at EMLEY MOOR, and we look forward to MOOR of the same!!!

PS, inbetween we attended Kieghley for an HFT shoot that had been set by a guy called 'Little' Dave and guess what club he is from?.....thats right, Emley Moor again!! You couldn't make it up!
Always be sincere...whether you mean it or not!!

And the HFT year is not over yet Tom! There is a double header UKAHFT event being held there at Emley Moor over the weekend of 15/16 October.
I have to agree the team up there have put on some really excellent events recently as they always do!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!

Well said. They've pull out all the strings this year. Big thank you to Emily, and it crew of wood rats. Never has so much been owned by so many to so few.

Thanks all. On behalf of Trev , Bob and the rest of the Emley crew i know that we always enjoy getting feedback. It makes the effort worthwhile.

Also please remember that the majority of the work done on setting the HFT courses is done by our resident FT shooters.

Note - Emley Moor has an open door when it comes to visiting shooters and we don't charge either. Anyone wanting to pop up to the ground then please don't hesitate in dropping me a PM and we'll sort it AND have the kettle on. Most of the time we have a UKAHFT spec practice course and a FT course out.
Chairman Emley Moor F.T.C
