Uncle Fester's Retiring

Post by Uncle Fester » December 31st, 2014, 6:53 am

Yup. gettin' old. Some serious health issues, and not sliding gently into geezerhood. January 17 will be my last time running an event, Goshen Invitational in Indiana. Not that other Goshen! I got 20 years in and some 150-175 tournaments, and the world's second-largest T-shirt and coffee cup collection.

All I need now is a good whippersnapper cane. . . .

I think the Indiana State Director said it best. Uncle Fester has been a long time volunteer, he has been volunteering since before the current batch of competitors was even born! He has been having some health issues recently so please keep him in your thoughts. Also Please post any funny Uncle Fester Stories you have!
