  whiteshark: Happy Birthday, Vincent !!
Jun-23-10  LIFE Master AJ: Anyone have any (recent) info on what Vince is doing now-a-days?
Nov-16-10  ICCM Bart Gibbons: I was fortunate to play Vince in his earlier days, before he became a lot stronger than me. We played 4 times, and I had one win, two losses, and a draw. 3 out of the 4 games were interesting battles, and I will be adding them to my page. Good luck Vince, wherever you are!
