The service was simple, comprising of musical extracts in between eulo...

Re: Mike Fowler

For anyone attending, Margy asked me to relay this message from the funeral directors to ask people to be there by 12.15 as it takes people a while to get settled.

Re: Mike Fowler

Margy asked me to say this too about the funeral:

"By the way, in case anyone is joining us on the 11th, it'll be a very informal event, not traditional, and I'm referring to it as Mike/Micks farewell gig, so jeans and T shirts are all good"

Mike Fowler

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you all that my good friend and former foosball partner Mike Fowler sadly passed away on Sunday 15th April 2018. Mike was a very interesting guy, he always had something to say about most things, but always listened first to other people's opinions t...

Re: Rob Davey

Just wanted to mark the one year anniversary of the passing of my old mate Rob, I have no idea where that 12 months went. It's still hard to think he's not here, there have been many times I have wanted to call him, times I half expected my next text to be from him asking a question about the next t...

Budapest is a beautiful city so players who have not yet visited should consider this event.

Re: Rob Davey

The funeral took place today and as Paul Martin noticed, there were 13 foosers who attended, the same number of players on a Tornado, arguably Robs best table. In alhabetical order: Mike Amsden, Boris Atha, Dave Bareham, Chris Bulley, Martyn Harris, Paul Martin, Ben Mason, Jon May, Alun Oates, Dave ...

Transparency John. That's all. I think a private message should be just that, and if it isn't, then I and I suspect others would like to know who has access on here.
