Long term members of this site would remember Steve Webb, from Sydney Australia. Steve sadly passed away last weekend.
Steve was a leading member of the Sutherland club in Sydney, and was the clubs leader in Dba. Steve for many years until recently was the organiser of the dba competition at the clubs MOAB convention and also organised smaller tournaments regularly. He was a frequent contributor to the fanaticus website. Sadly he was affected by the 2.2 vs 3 schism, and had drifted away away from dba, playing Triumph instead.
A more devoted follower of 2.2 could not be found. He brought me into the game and was my regular opponent for many years. Steve will be sadly missed by all that knew him.
I still recall the first day I went to his place to meet up. I thought I really understood DBA and he totally dismantled me in that game....of course that wasn't the last time he handed me a DBA style beating.
Vale Stephen. A gentle soul with a great interest in and knowledge of DBA. I meet him through MOAB about 5 years ago, and he always had time for a greeting and quick word of encouragement. It was a shock to hear the news on Sunday evening.
He was one of the first players to come from outside Canberra to compete in my DBA Events and was instrumental in bringing others along. That in itself drove me to start attending MOAB and in turn the following for DBA grew across the Sydney-Canberra axis and beyond.
May he continue to roll 6s.
Because it has my troops all over it. THAT makes it MINE!!!!
