I would like to thank the new Chairman for her kind words, the exiting Chairman for his great service (and comfortable guest bed), and those who encouraged me to run.
Most of all I would like to thank all of the buggy alumni from all of the different eras and all of the different teams, all who still carry the Fire. If you'd told me a few years ago that almost a hundred buggy alumni would be voting on who the next Chairman of the 'Buggy Alumni Association' would be I would have laughed. But, to borrow a well-worn phrase from my youth, the Buggy Alumni Association is no fucking joke. We are not all friends, but we are all working to continue this great tradition that we all poured our hearts and love into, and I look forward to helping, along with all of you, our new Chairman continue this great work.
