This is sad news.

Charles was the epitome of an ultimate evangelist - from my first days at UCSC in '91 I remember him from the local tourney's - the man was always in a good mood and always preaching the fun aspects of ultimate.

While he did send us (slugs) on a couple of interesting travelling adventures, he was always looking to find a way, any way, to help college kids get to a tourney.

Good guy - will be missed.

Such sad news.

I loved throwing and talking with Charles at Sarasota and other tourneys.

He helped my wife and I travel through Oaks Travel. Our favorite trip was our honeymoon at Sonora Bay Club Med in 1999. We had about 40 players for the Singular Luxury Ultimate Tournament. Such a wonderful time with Charles and Matt H, and it is where Mary and I met Christian and Gail S. Such good times. (http://www.napanet.net/~jesster/slut1999.htm for some tourney pictures by Jester)

Charles will be missed. Rest in peace.
