We are sorry to hear the passing of Dave MacGowan. He was a member of the league starting back in 1977 until 1995.
He worked to bring the Touch Bowl (The Canadian Touch Football Championship) to Saint John in 1990 & 1993. We was a key contributor of the Trojans up to his retirement from the league in 95′.
He was also the League Statistician and we were able to get copies of the stats 1988 to 1995 from him in 2016.
In 1995 as part of the 20 year anniversary of the league, he wrote two pages as a reflection titled: TOUCH FOOTBALL – 20 Years Later by Dave MacGowan. Here are the closing remarks:
As you can tell, I have accumulated a lot of great memories during the past 19 years. To each of you who have been apart of making those memories, I thank you. And to those players who are new to the league, I thank you for being a part of tomorrow’s memories. I sincerely hope that this game can provide you with as much satisfaction as it has given me.
