A couple of people have tipped me off over the last week or so that the message below announcing the death of Paul Richardson is bogus. It's not exactly an intelligent thing to do. Especially considering the tragic nature of some of the passings of our gaming friends and comrades that have been posted on this board over the years.
Someone needs to grow up.  Ian


March Messages

NAME: Chris Whiffen
MESSAGE: I can't believe that my old mate Paul Richardson has gone. He was such a good mate and we had a brilliant working and social life together in Kiev.  The last time I saw him was only a few months ago too.  Paul was one of the few casino managers who actually knew what running a casino meant and he knew his stuff.  Gutted.  I will miss him.

NAME: Craigie Watson
MESSAGE: Carol Tweedlie, one of Edinburgh's longest serving managers has died. She worked at the Casino Martell back in the late 80's and had a continuous employment through the acquisition by Stanley and onwards until recently. She was a couple of training schools ahead of me, and I ran into her again and again over my time in and around Edinburgh's clubs.  I know that I am shocked by her untimely death through cancer and my thoughts are with all who cared for her.
I shall miss her.
