Hey Greg, saddened to hear you leaving the the sport you love... obviously something behind the decision, but wish you all the best in what ever you get up to, and like others said, don't be a stranger... you don't have to shoot to be a part of FT

Take care mate, and hope one day you can come back and play with us all again

I hope you're happy ... but .... I want to see you every time I go to your country, then you can not make excuses to make us a hug. (sorry, my English is very bad ... I'm studying to be able to speak with you)

Sorry to read you will be leaving FT.

It has been a pleasure to know you over the last few years and I am truly saddened that you will be leaving us. I wish you every success for the future and don't forget to attend some GPs just to have a chat with your old friends.

Good Luck and keep smiling

Sitting here I find myself reflecting on all the things I'll miss about FT, apart from the very many targets I missed over the last four years or so & the main thing will be all of you, all the many friends I made on the circuit who listened to my many excuses with patience offering comiserations & advice & made every Shoot a thing to look forward to. I've met some top folks through FT, real Ladies & Gents & each & everyone of you will live long in my memory.
Good luck & Good shooting to you all & if I have the good fortune to come across any of you again I'd be a happier man for it!
Think well of Baltipal, he did very little harm really, bye all.

(Think well of Baltipal, he did very little harm really, bye all) I would doubt you no how to do harm to anyone Greg i only hope you are leaving(having time off) from the sport for the right reasons you have always been a jovial chap and always will be, if you ever want a days shooting myself for one and probably dozens of others will willingly lend you a shooting stick.

Sorry to hear this mate, you're a true gent, and as Steve says, when the bug bites again I'll be happy to see you back on the shooting line.

Cheers all, I've been deeply touched by your kind words & felicitations. It was always going to be a hard thing to say goodbye to you all & believe me I've been putting it off but leaving FT is the best thing for me at present purely for financial reasons & as I am a great believer in never saying never I can't write off the possibility of coming back at some point.
I fervantly hope FT goes from strength to strength, with new bridges built with FT comunities everywhere coming together under a common flag.
Many thanks everyone
