Thread: Farewell to Beowulf

  1. #1

    Farewell to Beowulf

    Ladies and Gentleman,

    I would like to explain something to you all if I may, to avoid rumour and gossip, it concerns the future of the site and Steve F, Beowulf. As most of you will be aware the site was being sold by Rob Mac, to Steve, Sikamalc, our technical man Mark and myself. Well the site is still being sold the only difference is Steve does not feature amongst the buyers. This is not because of any sinister reason or plot, it is because of a decision come to by Steve and his good lady Darinda.

    I have no wish, or reason to go into detail, suffice to say that ill health features in the decision. Steve himself has already alluded to this in his last post about the T shirts, and this along with several other factors have caused Steve to arrive at the decision he did. He has in my, opinion, taken the correct course of action, and needs to see it through without distraction.

    I'm sure a lot of you would, like me, wish to thank him for all the time and effort that he has put into making this site what it is today. He has undoubtedly been the driving force behind it, but now he needs to do other things. He and Darinda have become, and always will be, good friends and I wish them well for the future, a sentiment echoed by Sikamalc. I look forward to the day I see him posting again.

    Good luck for the future Steve

    I have known for a while now that the running of this site has been putting a lot of stress on you. Your health is more important as i have said before, but that does not mean you do not need to post at all. Just take a back seat and keep in touch by putting the odd post on now and again, keep your time on the site to maybe 1 hour per day instead of the maybe 3/4/ or even 6 hours a day that you have been putting in.

    P.S. The site has gone from strength to strength with your input

    ATB mate and keep in touch.

    What can I say. Mr. B., I am gutted!
    Wadas, I think the problem with your idea is that Mr. B. would not know when to turn the computer off! It needs to be on a locked time switch set to 1 hour a day.
    Anyway, take care mate and look after yourself and your health first. We can tear strips of each other in your absence!

    Sorry Ladies and Gentlemen i am a bit late in responding, but I was away from home when I got the phone call from John(JAYB).

    I can only echo what JAYB has already said. Steve (AKA Beowulf) has been an outstanding member of this site, he is also bloody good company and I count him as a friend.

    I am not about to go into the whys and where fors about Steve leaving Admin, but I have been aware of some problems Steve has had for a while. He is a good honest, hard working man who is passionate about deer and the countryside, I only wish everyone I had met after 52 years of being on this revolving ball had the same attitude. The site will go on and we are working towards a brighter future and Steve I am sure will remain part of that future by being a site member. Personally I would like to thank him for his huge contribution that he has made towards the takeover, I dont think we would have got this far without him, and his good lady wife Darinda.

    I will see you in Scotland Steve, thank you from all the team and the members.
