18 December '''Travis Penery'''<br />Everyone at UKGameshows.com is very sad to hear of the death of Travis Penery, one of our contributors and a long-standing member of the UK game show fandom scene. Travis was well-known for his in-depth knowledge of formats and selflessly shared his passion for television with fans both in the UK and around the world. Often his Christmas cards contained a small bundle of CDs containing rarities he had found from his extensive sources, including his own satellite TV system. He also wrote his own blog and contributed UK-skewing articles to the US game show site Buzzerblog. He died aged 29, following complications from a stroke. We would like to extend our sincere condolences to his friends and family.<br/><br/>

It's what Mumsy would want.
