What is the slient about ?
I might be away for so many weeks and can also be the reason for missing out so many informations about FOB. The fob forum have never been so dormant like this before and that is why I am asking what is the silent about? We have a wide and a huge membership brothers and sisiters , are we already throwing away all the good work done for the past few years?
I am only asking because my email account was not active from October 2015 until now and that could be the reason for missiing out the activities of the Association. WHAT ABOUT the 2016 proposal elections , are the any current development within the general membership and executive that we all need to know? I do know that renewal of membership fee for the 2016 are due again and we all have to do something about it. Folks, I am just concern about he future og the FOB and that is why I am asking all these questions. With since greetings to the FoB members.

The Death of Bademba Kamara
The death of Bademba Kamara, otherwise known by his childhood moniker "BDK" or sometimes "BD-WA" has been announced. He died Monday night in Basse and was buried the next day.
BDK hailed from Basse Angal Futa. He was a popular goalkeeper for the Fulladu FC during the heyday of Basse Nawetaan football at the Basse High Level Football Field. He was known for his dramatics at the goalpost. He was agile, occasionally liked to dangle his hand over the goalpost, or he would put up a show acting like he was about to let the ball into his net when he actually knew he had the ball in his clutches. BDK was a fun goalkeeper. The kids loved him, and they would surround him after games. I likened his goalkeeping style to that of the Mexican goalkeeper Jorge Campos in the 1990 Italy World Cup. They both liked to flirt with danger, acted playful but actually well concentrated on the game, on the ball arriving in their vicinity.
The history of the Basse High Level Football Field is replete with actors and their frolics. BDK surely belonged in the company of Basse football entertainers. He made an impact; he contributed in his own way to the development of the sport in town. He leaves behind great memories, for which people like me, who saw him in action, would be forever grateful.
BDK is survived by brothers MSK, Babanding and Mamudu Kamara in Angal Futa, Bakary Kamara in Norway. He is also survived by a sister or two. May Allah forgive him his sins and count him among the blessed in Janna. Ameen.
