Thank you KARL

GCTTA is about to lose one of our most loyal & active volunteers.
Karl Braun is leaving the sunny Gold Coast to live in Sydney.
Players who have attended any of our many & varied tournaments will remember his friendly and extremely competent operation of the BBQ. Also one of our regular players & helpers at working bees. He will be greatly missed.
Much as we are disappointed to see him go, we wish him all the best with the next chapter of his life in his new locale.
THANKS KARL!
