A Note from DB:

Hi DracoB Fans and Web Surfers,                                                                                                                                                It was such a special and touching experience to be surrounded by our sportive family and friends at this F.A.X.  tribute to my father, his life and work. Thank you again to F.A.X. founder, Gwenveria Sargeant and staff, as well as to all of you who were able or hoping to attend. Draco and I are so very touched and proud, and even more so to hear F.A.X’s note that requests for attendance exceeded even their expectations and plans for the event. 

I hope all of you enjoy these images of the F.A.X. festivities. I would also like to give an extra thanks to our photographer Leticia Barboza for providing us with the extensive photos! And to our D.Alamander78  of  our staff here at DracoB.com for the following article and her careful fact checking.

Cheers,
 Danica B.
