I'd like to add 3 names if I may Alan. Probably not very well known to anyone who isn't, or hasn't once been, a member of Bridgestone Golf.
WilliamRicker. Founder of the club and a really generous and great guy. He made a return a few weeks ago but sadly it appears to have been a brief one. I still have this guy to thank for introducing me to a wonderful club and for doing so much to make it such a wonderful club.
Ffudd. May be known to a few outside of Bridgestone, he was one of the big guns of WGT and by far the biggest cannon in our club. A very witty, generous and helpful guy, he never hesitated to share any of his tips and tricks in order to help others play better and was a major sponsor within the club.
Last but far from least, Fridgeman. One of only 3 or 4 people I've Skyped with while playing (really must do that more often) and one of very few who's private email address is known to me. A huge figure within the club and in real life, hence the nickname Fridgeman which went back to his sporting days.
Sorry if it seems pretty maudlin to feel sad about losing touch with these people, people we've mostly never actually met in real life, but I think we encounter some great people here and it's a shame when they drop back out of our lives without a proper goodbye or the chance to catch up with them later on. Having said that, Fridge did say goodbye and gift his credits before leaving but he's very much in the minority. Apart from the attention seekers that is.
My thanks to Alan for starting this and my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Andrewmca.
