Flying Buffalo CEO Rick Loomis has been diagnosed with cancer, he revealed in an email.  "No worries, I’m told it is very treatable," he wrote.  "However I expect to be somewhat distracted for the next few months."

Loomis expressed optimism for a recovery, and even got in a plug.  "I expect to still be here for 2020, when Flying Buffalo has its big 50th anniversary," he wrote.

In addition to his role at Flying Buffalo, which released a new printing of Tunnels & Trolls in 2018 (see "’Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls’ Returns to Print"), Loomis is one of two remaining Emeritus Directors on the board of the Game Manufacturers Association, which has had a very busy year (see "Mike Stackpole: ‘GAMA Board Is Broken’").
