Bob Garypie ( a longtime TransWeb board member and veteran of all previous TransWeb webcasts brings a modicum of alpine skiing skill and a plethora of photographic panache to Nendaz.
Eleanor Jones (, as editor of this webcast, is in the coveted position of being able to compose her own biographical blurb, so it won't include her accomplishments but rather will include her heartfelt wishes to all athletes for a wonderful week in Nendaz...and to all the web site viewers, happy browsing
Bob Merion ( did his first transplant in 1982, first used the Internet in 1988, and joined his first TransWeb webcast in June 2000. He is enjoying working hard to record audio interviews and set up webcast pages that help viewers learn about the success of transplantation and the importance of donation.

Randy Milgrom ( is the creator of MilWrite Communications, an Ann Arbor-based business communications business. He is also sports editor of the Michigan Alumnus and a frequent contributor to the Ann Arbor Observer on public school issues, college sports, and other topics. His essays and other short pieces have appeared in The Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press Magazine, and Crain's Detroit Business, among other publications, and his short fiction has twice won national awards in the annual Writer's Digest Writing Competition. His passions - aside from being with his family - are writing, running, playing basketball, and trying to hit golf shots. Now Randy makes his second appearance on a TransWeb webcast team, his first having been a grueling (but delightfully productive) four days in Orlando for the 2000 U.S. Transplant Games.

Peter Ottlakan ( a native of Gyula, Hungary was a member of the webcast team at the 1999 World Transplant Games in Budapest (where he was a godsend, getting us where we needed to go and tirelessly translating for us in every kind of situation). In Nendaz, Peter will again be a member of our team, serving as a volunteer photographer.
Matthew Quirk ( joins us for his second webcast (the first having been Orlando)... he is a former computer support technician who has now spent many years working his particular brand of magic on graphics (including animation, multimedia) for Surgery Graphics at University of Michigan. In this webcast he volunteers his audio interviewing, digital photo processing, and technical troubleshooting to make everything run smoothly.
Doug Armstrong, a veteran of many previous TransWeb webcasts, volunteered his help at our home base in Ann Arbor.
