Heard about the news today at the Stuttgart Game Fair from Marc Wibbels. That wakes me up from my forum hibernation.
It was basically you, Void, who brought me really to Kendama at the EJC 2010 in Munich. I already played a very little bit, bought my first proper one at a booth there and was directly registered by you for next day's EJC.
I can fully understand that it became too much for you, running the BKA virtually as a one-man-show, although many others participated and contributed. But my impression is that you were the main mover (I think your avatar also stated that, even though it only says "BKA mover" now). Your competitions, actions, tipps and tricks motivated and inspired my over and over again. So it is also with sadness to see you leave the bridge. I really hope that the great community will continue. I know from own experience how hard it is to keep something like that running, when the founders quit. But I guess the momentum is there.
Thank you so much for all the work and I really hope that you at least stay in the community.
