Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Don was "good people" and liked by everyone he met.  Especially his fellow competitors... he was pretty good about "reading" the rules... always had something going on.

Some great memories  cheers
