It was with great shock and sadness that the club learned of the untimely and tragic passing of our friend and member Martin while on holidays. Indeed the news stunned us all. A member for a few short years Martin was a frequent attendee on Wednesday nights running his Irish stock on the club layouts. He was very proud of his Irish collection which he kept in specially made boxes. We enjoyed his banter, jokes and good nature and we will certainly miss it. To his wife Bernie and daughters Michelle and Deborah we express our condolences. May he rest in peace.
