Hi guys

It's that time again. I need to prepare the banner for the December 31 memorial banner. Please give me your suggestions for famous people who had a connection to gaming who have passed. Also, I want to honor any of your gaming friends who have passed as well. I believe TMP's own Streitaxe passed this year. Photos are appreciated.

Thank you.

Har har. I'm looking for who needs to be commemorated.

Fred Ehlers, who posted under his own name and sometimes as Save the Tumbleweeds, died of pancreatic cancer Halloween morning. Fred wrote the Call to the Colors ACW rules for convention use, and was well known for running Call to the Colors games and games based on the Alien movie series at conventions here in Colorado.

Several of us attended Fred's Celebration of Life service, and were pleased to see the family had set up a Call to the Colors game outside the chapel as a display.

Thanks! Do we have a picture of him?

I'll see if I can find one and send it to you.
