To all message board users and readers...
We've seen some sad events over the past few months with several well known casino industry vet's passing away. Life must go on though, and along with searching for old casino buddies more upbeat messages are also welcome - engagements, marriages & births etc...even promotions !

Also it would be nice if just occasionally someone replied to my confirmation email and said - Thank you !. We all need the occasional pat on the back, unfortunately it's a long time since I had one.   Ian

Romanian Dealers and Inspectors Beware!
It has come to our attention that a company in Romania, namely xxxxxx xxxxx is claiming to recruit staff on behalf of Seefar Associates Ltd to work in our casinos on board the P&O Ferries. xxxxxx xxxxx  is asking fees from candidates of up to €500 per person for their ‘assistance’ in this service. 

Please be informed that we do not use the services of this or any other recruitment agency in Romania. Candidates may apply directly to us for employment and do not need to pay any fees to any one for becoming employed with our company.

Joy West Managing Director Seefar Associates Ltd. +44 1474 329990
The above message has been placed at the request of Seefar and I've xxx'ed out the name of the company. The basic message though is clear and it applies to casino staff of all nationalities. If requested, NEVER send money to any agency. Agencies charge a fee for their services (recruitment, screening, table testing etc...) directly to their casino operator/supplier clients.  Ian

14th July.
On my trip back to Sheffield this last week I saw an article in the Star that came as a great shock. Steve Burgin who trained me at the Craywood Club back in 1978, and who until retiring had worked for Mecca/Pleasurama/Rank-Grosvenor for 35 years commited suicide back in April.

This is extremely tragic news and below is the story as reported by the Sheffield Star.  Ian
