So sorry to learn of your medical challenges with your sight. I hope that your condition does not get worse and  that the future may improve in some way.

Your contributions to the site are very much valued and your running of the OVF competitions are greatly appreciated.

Cheers Rob,

It was way back in February, 2006 when we started the competitions following a suggestion from Karl aka 'werstayunup' to run a 'Guess the 1st Goal'.

With a bit of luck we'll be celebrating 20 years in 2026 :smile:

This is a general response to several messages and emails received wondering if yours truly is okay consequence of a low profile on the Forum – other than the GTGS/GTC Competitions.

Back in August, 2013 I was diagnosed as having advanced dry macular degeneration in my right eye. My left eye and peripheral vision were said to be fine. Since then and up to late last year life was mostly as before – a little slower across the keyboard; slightly more focused reading the Forum.

Now, it seems, I’m losing the central focus in my left eye - but still retain strong peripheral vision.

So, why am I telling you this!?

MY Forum low profile will be more so now, but the OVF Competitions will still be run. However, and more for personal reasons, they will be fortnightly. But you will be pleased to read that the season prize pool of a minimum of £100 per game for 46 games will, instead, be divided by 23 games.

Stay safe,

Barry :smile:

p.s. it took a bliddy age to compose this reply. Ah well, such is life :smile:

I have only just seen Baz, sorry to hear this news. Hope you are well.
