I as well haven't been on the website for a few days, just logged on the server and saw it had been renamed. I knew what that meant straight away.

RIP Bruce (Flattop). I first raced with Bruce here all the way back in 2007. I can only echo what others have said.
Like many I never met Him in real life but know He was a true Gentleman. I will miss Him here as will
everyone else.  My Thoughts and Prayers are with His Family.

I think we should change the name of the Thursday forum as well. ;)

The news of Bruce's passing has made me incredibly sad. I only knew him through the brief intercourse of Tuesday race nights, and from reading his posts, but I feel as though I've lost a great friend, such was Bruce's personality and presence. RIP Flattop, the nicest bloke I've raced with.

A wonderful service, a lot of people all sad to say goodbye. Good to see so many people support his family just by being there in such a hard time.
Here's a few photo's of Bruce, the last two he quickly became involved with the Mentone Life Saving Club, involving all his grand children to little nippers and also extending his knowledge to their boats. They even named a boat after him!

Thankyou for the lovely photos Glen, Thursday nights will not be the same without Flattop, as GW said, when you heard Bruce's voice over Teamspeak, you felt that little bit happier. We are all going to miss him.

Well its Christmas eve and I was about to go to bed when I thought of Flattop and thought I would post him a message.  Sadly then I read here to find
that I am to late.....
Stunned and lost for words...
I have raced with Bruce for many many years and held him in the highest regard despite never having actually met! 
A thorough gentleman who like many here I will very sadly miss.
RIP Bruce.

Just a reminder that it was around 12 months ago that we lost Flattop (Bruce).
A thorough gentleman and all round nice guy who is sadly missed but not forgotten!
