Many of you will be aware that Gerry Mills has said that after 16 years and at the age of 80 he will be giving up the job of Book Seller at the end of November. I'd like to specially thank him for all his many years of effort on behalf of the BGA and also ask if there is anyone interested in taking over the role, or assisting someone else in trying to replace Gerry (which will be very big boots to fill).

Clive Hendrie died on 28th January 2010 at 6 pm in the Windsor hospice of Thames Hospicecare. Clive had been battling cancer for over a year, and despite treatment and operations was taken worse just after the New Year. Uncle Clive, as he is known to Bracknell Go Club (because of his two nieces), will be sadly missed by those who knew and played against him.
