I was reading Dolf's Thanks in the front of one of his books and saw a guy named Bill Vallerand from Greene, Maine. It sparked my interest because I went to school with his daughter. I didn't know he was into guns, but he had a lot of range rovers around the place. Googling his name and it brought up Small Arms Review with some interesting info. Small world.

Wondered if any of you knew him?

I am sure some here knew him, and will pipe in. I only new him by reputation, but his passing was well mourned in the MG world, and many of the folks I have come to know in that field were among his friends.

I sure did. Billy was one of the real good guys. I met him at the first shoot up at Stratford Hollow, NH. He was one of the few that braved the cold and rainy first day of the 3 day shoot that would become the North Country Shoots. I have absolutely tons of photos and videos of Billy and his partner in crime Dick Salemi(sp?) from Rhode Island.

Jim Balleu used all my photos and info for an end of video tribute to Billy on one of the Knob Creek DVD's.(didn't get any credit for that though). I didn't care. I was just glad I could do something to honor him.
