    Received news over the weekend that George Riddell passed away last Wednesday after a short battle with cancer.

    RIP George.

    Sad to hear. Cancer is a tough thing. Lost an aunt and an uncle to it. Best wishes to his family.

    RIP George.

    I believe this was George's second battle with cancer, as I recall him being sick over the last few years, but heard he had beaten it around this time last year.

    George could be stubborn at times, and he didn't suffer fools. But he gave countless hours to the youth soccer scene in the Lower Mainland. And if you have ever had to schedule any kind of league/tournament, the fact he could do it year after year is astonishing. I would have bailed after one time!

    He was committed to youth soccer, specifically the 5 District League, and he will be sorely missed.

    Does anyone know if someone took over George Riddell's "stuff"? (domains, TAGS scheduling, etc?) And contact info?
