I saw this in the Summit County paper a couple of days ago. I didn't know him, but some of my friends knew him. A know that some of the Rising Sun folks knew him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I had meet him earlier last year, what a shame. He seem like a real nice, geninue guy. Never know when your time is up. The article reads like it was a ski accident and he was not wearing a helmet(maybe i read it wrong). Just a bummer for his family.

I did not know him. For those of you who did it sounds like a sad loss for you. My thoughts and prayers go to Mikes family and friends.

Did not know him personally, but have heard of him. People always spoke highly of him. He and his family and friends will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Hum, That is too bad. I talked to him a few times in Fairplay when he had his planet crusiers going behind the Napa. Wish his family well during this tough time.

Bob and I have traded phone messages and emails, he hasn't answered the last one of either I sent yesterday. I'll keep trying.

After the discussion at the meeting, has anyone spoke with Mike's family regarding the assistance they were looking for? As I'm up in Summit I'd me more than willing to help out with anything.

A note.....after the post meeting at Hopps, there was a good chunk of extra money on the pile for the goods we consumed. Instead of trying to figure out who should get dollars back we all elected to donate the extra to the "Grubby" fund! Joe Calega will handle the donation. :bowdown::risingsun:

I noticed a benefit being held at A-basin posted up around town. If anyone is interested I write down the time and date next time I see a flyer.

As I mentioned at the meeting, I encouraged Bob Schwab to join the forum and this discussion...I'll ping him again.
