Hal Haag Memorial Community Established  

It is with deep regret that I must tell you all that Hal Haag passed away from [apparent] heart attack #6 on the morning of Wednesday, August 12. Hal chaired two Balticons, and wore many other hats over the years including department head / sole propietor / slave for the Hall Costume Contest, Rocket Mail (the daily newsletter) and most recently the Gaming Room Czar. When he wasn't engaging in SMOF activities, Hal could almost always be found playing some kind of game or chatting with friends (usually both). His love of games led him to be well known in local board and card gaming circles, and he introduced untold multitudes to a wide variety of games.

Hal Haag's son Evan (necroluth) has set up the halhaagmemorial community for folks to share their memories and thoughts about Hal. Evan has posted some additional details on the community for those who are interested as well.
