Brian Mulvaney was the first one to tap me to play in a tournament with him and we managed to completely cough up a 4 bowl lead in our last match in the Novice Pairs in 2016. If only we'd realized that, "the curse of the one big end," would haunt us in every tournament for the next 3 years.
For those who don't know, Brian has received a great work opportunity up in the Seattle, WA area. A regular at Saturday social bowls, Monday nights, and most of the club and regional tournaments, he'll be missed. He'll still have a presence in Newport so expect to see him around but we definitely want to wish him all the best in his new venture.
