Thanks for everything Gav, you had an amazing career in TT, and without doubt, you helped so much with this game that I can't even write anything else.
About the new Board vacancy, I don't think there is anyone better than Adrian (AdeyC) to occupy the position. Adrian is an amazing manager and an extremely active member of this game. Having him as my doubles partner is already an honor, and that just helps me seeing how great for TT he is.

Win: BEIJING (Singles)

RUNNER-UP: ROLAND GARROS 2012 (Doubles w/AdeyC)
About the board vacancy, I don't think it is naturally that a good manager is a good board member. It can either ruin his management skills and it is actually not the same deal. But I would for sure support AdeyC for this one!
First I’d like to say a huge thank you to each and every person who’s posted in this thread supporting me – I have been really touched by all of these comments here and also by the PM’s that I received.
I’d also like to give special thanks to three people who shall remain nameless for their recent guidance but they’ll know who they are - and also my personal thanks as always to M and to S for…....well just for being M and S really and for always having had faith in me and for always encouraging and supporting me.
I also want to say a public thank you to Gav who knows that I always held him in the highest regard possible - his resignation is a loss to me and to TT in my opinion, he was always very helpful and encouraging when I first nervously said I’d have a try out at managing an event for the first time last November – which in turn obviously led to playing a massive part in getting me here – he has had the patience of a Saint in putting up with my endless persistence and pestering on occasions, I know I must have driven him mad a couple of times since he’s known me (although I know you know it’s only been because I care so much about this great game Gav ). I just never thought this was going to happen and it's a honour to think I am replacing you
Of course I will do my absolute best in every way possible that I can in helping in assisting my now ‘fellow Board Members’ () in the running of and in the advancement of what is the best game ever thought of.
