    I know there are a few industry type people on this board, most of you have probably heard by not, but a few of you may not, Ronnie Thomson (thomson seatpost/stems) passed away this past Sunday.
    If you're in the Georgia area or the southeast at all they are having a party in his name this coming weekend. This had been planned in advance to his death. It was a yearly bday bash of sorts for Ronnie they hold every year at the shop. Come by and have some fun and enjoy the weekend.

    Very sad. If you don't mind me asking, was his passing for natural causes?

    It depends on what you consider natural. I think he had bladder cancer.

    It's too bad more people can't or don't strive for greatness in their lives.

    Cancer blows. I'd rather take an ax to the face.
