Bon voyage, Jody Grober

->> I'd feel remiss if nobody here mentioned Jody Grober's retirement from Roberts Distributors in Indianapolis earlier this year, something I actually just learned about yesterday myself.

Roberts was a longtime sponsor of all things Sports Shooter and I know I'm not alone in saying Jody will be missed. Their new director of professional and commercial sales is John Scott, and he's got some seriously big shoes to fill.

->> I have lots of fond memories of Jody and his staff, from long, long ago. He and his staff found me things when they weren't available anywhere else. The last camera I bought from them was a Leica M8.2 but that's over a decade ago.

I think I learned about Robert's Imaging from posts here. I can't recall the name of the person I usually worked with, but it will come to me - eventually.

->> I too learned about Robert's Imaging here at Sports Shooter. Jody was awesome to work with. I hope he enjoys retirement.

Have no fear though, his successor John Scott, is a solid guy and works equally hard to help fill your needs. I have been very pleased with John's help and knowledge on many photography matters and will continue to use them for my photo equipment needs because of his commitment to the customers. You won't be disappointed in John's service.

->> I just found out a couple of days ago myself, when I sent an email to Jody's address, and received a reply from someone else. He will surely be missed!
