George Farquharson inducted in to the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame

The late George Farquharson made a tremendous impact on the sport of target shooting.
He created the F-Class, a category of competition named in his honour.
George Farquharson passed away in 1995.

“It’s made shooting in many places more popular,” says his son David Farquharson. “It’s spread it to various places in the World – he started it to make it possible for older guys to still be able to compete. At the same time it made the younger guys enjoy the shooting more, because it was more accurate.”
