I to have failed to reach him since my last post via text, phone call, email and smoke signals. When I did last speak to him he had just gotten out of the hospital and frankly I am worried that the reason that we cannot reach him is that he had to go back - but that is pure speculation.
I don't believe strongbad would intentionally take money and vanish. Based upon my interactions with him and his reputation, I don't think someone of his sort would do the like. I hope everything is ok.

I just find it odd that he would disappear at a time where he could rack up around $300. I believe that he isn't the type to scam us out, especially with his reputation in the forum. I'm just worried that I lost $45 because I sent it over 2 months ago and the draft doesn't seem to be starting soon. Especially since this started in September I just want this to be done.
I have zero involvement in this event, however, I felt I had information to add that may or may not ease some concerns.
I have met with Tony several times for food and drinks, as we are both current residents of Texas. We both joined a LUG together and he's been missing and silent from meetings and events there, as well. He has also failed to sign up for LUGBulk, one of the major reasons he and I even sought out a LUG to begin with.
Like others here, I do not wish to believe he would ever scam anyone within this community. Given his injury and likely necessary surgical procedures to follow, I believe his disappearance is medical related. I also believe it may be more serious than anyone was made aware of as his large castle (the one built for one of the Global Challenges) has been on display at a store since its completion (back in October, I think) and he told the owners he'd be by to pick it up two weeks before Thanksgiving - six weeks ago. The store owners are also part of our LUG and have not seen or heard from him since early November, which coincides with the general time frame of last correspondence received by anyone else.
I am out of state for several weeks, but if anyone has his physical mailing address, feel free to private message me as I would personally go and stop by to check on him and make sure everything is okay.
