The May 2012 — The marcmandy 3-Handed Whist tourney
Message from marcmandy
There's entirely too much distressing health news from people, like me, who have health woes.
It's time to reverse that trend.
As many of you already know, I have been engaged in a battle against esophageal cancer
since the end of 2010.
After 9 weeks of chemo-therapy, very major surgery, a postsurgical infection, another nine weeks of chemo, a necessary but premature retirement and, finally, a very slow recovery, I am absolutely delighted to announce that after my PET Scan in early March, I am cancer-free!
I am well on the road to recovery and feeling pert-darned positive about my prospects.
As I work out in the Y thrice a week, I have more stamina and I am better able to focus.
I am renewing my attentions to graphics design here on the site and am looking ahead to decide what I shall do with my life now that I am no longer a pressman at the NY Times.
I have my wife and my son to thank —both are players on the site, too— as well as the support I received from my friends at home and my friends here at GoldToken.
As such, I would like to invite you to a celebratory tourney that my new friend TexasToest
has put together with my favorite multiplayer games.
I shall be playing in each of these, although (LOL), since I'm an average player, I'm not sure how long I'll last!
Time control will be 2 days with loss of game.
Help us celebrate the great news!
