At the DZ yesterday, news came through that Dave was involved in a motorcycle accident whilst on holiday in Scotland.

Specifics, including his injuries, are unclear as yet, but I believe that he has broken one or possibly both arms, and that may not be all of his injuries, but I wanted to be the first person on here to say how gutted I was to hear about this and to wish him a full and speedy recovery.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke :( Would appreciate any updates regarding this from anyone in the know.

Tom

Dave Gould is one of the sports top blokes.
A great rigger, a cookie monster and a gentleman in the true sense.

Dave, Hope you get better soon mate. Someone let me know where he is I want to send some cake :doh:

I have it on good authority that Dave has suffered two broken arms and was going in for surgery on one of them today... As far as i'm aware there are no further injuries and he should make a full recovery.

Hopefully someone from Hinton that knows more will be able to post further updates as to his condition as soon as we know more.

Now you can see why they don't normally let him stray outside of his rigging room! In a way i'm glad it's only a couple of broken arms - given what I heard happened to him, he's lucky not to have far worse injuries...

Hope you heal quickly mate!

The moral of this story?

Never go to Scotland.

I hope we can get sweets to him somehow, the idea of him having to go cold turkey in some foreign hospital is terrifying.
