John RobertsonLast fall PDB received an email from Patrick Robertson letting us know his father had passed away, but that he loved looking for our hidden paddle. After reading his email we decided to make John our "honorary number one" this month. We've included Patrick's email message below. Thanks John for always searching for our paddle, you will be missed.

PDB Editors


Dear PDB,
It is with a heavy heart that I have to report the passing of my father, John Robertson. He absolutely loved getting his PDB magazine in the mail and searching for that darn paddle. At 83 years old he still had excellent eyesight and most of the time he would find it quickly. Oh but he would be upset sometimes and give me a call to come over to his house for a paddle hunting!

He has been one of the first people to find the paddle several times and was delighted to have his name published in PDB magazine. Thank you very much for a fine magazine that also gets its readers involved with boating and more importantly each other. Several hours of searching and laughter have been had searching this magazine for that paddle! Now he gets to look down and laugh with me as I continue the search.

Respectfully, Patrick Robertson
