Extremely sad news. Below is the text of my reply to Mr. Adams.

'Dear Mr. Adams,

I have posted your very sad news on our site, at

Mr. Pritchard will long be remembered by the Chess Variants community for
his love of Chess and great contributions to the knowledge and 
appreciation of variants. 

Mr. Pritchard was a correspondent with David Howe, our chief editor. He
also was the judge of our '41 Squares Contest' in 2001, for which we
will also remember him with gratitude. 

Our deepest condolences to his family and friends,

With best regards,

Tony Quintanilla
