Outlands White Scarf Talan Andolini injured in car accident

Talan Andolini, White Scarf of the Outlands, has been injured in a very serious car accident. His truck lost control an icy patch of road as he was coming home from the ski area where he teaches skiing, running at great speed into a tree. His right leg was broken in several places, and he's battling an infection in one of the wounds that is stubbornly refusing to heal. His doctors are not terribly optimistic about a full recovery. IF they do not have to amputate his leg, he faces many long months or even years of recovery, and he is of course very depressed that he may never fence again.

Also, his truck is totaled, and he has no health insurance or personal injury coverage on his car insurance, so you can imagine what this will cost him. Herein lies the reason for this missive. For those of you who can afford it, I beg that you consider a donation to help him defray to costs of his medical bills.

I will be at Winter Oasis this January 29, 2005 in the Barony of Unser Hafen in the Outlands, with a brass bowl for all who can spare some change. I know that with all of his expenses, it will be a drop in the bucket, but every little bit helps on his road to recovery.

For those of you cannot attend Winter Oasis, and may wish to donate a little spare change, I will be gathering checks or money orders to deposit in his bank account. Please send any donations, cards or well wishes to:

Carrie Russell (For Greg Tinkley)
2580 Rim Drive
Broomfield, CO 80020

Please make out any checks or money orders to Greg Tinkley.

Talan does not have email, but I will print out and pass along any messages you would like to send. My email is anachronista@gmail.com

You may also contact me at that address if you have any questions about donations.

Thank you for your prayers and well-wishes, and may your days be filled with sunshine and mead.
