    What a fantastic website. For a non comm. it is great to catch up with all the latest news. Your Jack Passing column for an oldie like me is of significant interest. Looking forward to the Rock reunion.
    Cheers.

    I was on Lachlan with Wiggy for a while, or I should say he was on Lachlan with me, he wasn’t sighted much, except when we teamed up to play euchre, we cleaned up the whole tournament more than once, but I have to add that we had a system which strangely enough no one picked up, even Rocky Cribb the chef, another gun card player who taught me a trick or two and who would never play for fun, money always involved. RIP Wiggy.
