Kurt 'Deegan' Philpots, taken too soon.

On Saturday November 30, Kurt, through no fault of his own, tragically lost his life driving a route in North Queensland that he had completed hundreds of times before. He was off to a date with his girlfriend. He was 20 years old. 

Regardless of time or place, he was never afraid to speak his mind on anything, which frequently resulted in contagious laughter from all those listening. Despite his jovial demeanour, Kurt was never one to stand by silently while others were made to struggle, and so now it is our turn to fight his fight. 

This campaign has been created to funnel all of the love and support we can muster from the Australian CounterStrike scene, the online community as a whole and those who knew him only in person, to get behind his family in this tremendously difficult period. 

Proceeds will go towards financial support of Kurt's family and the improvement of the area of road that took his life. 

Deegan, as he was known among the community, was a much loved member of the Deep Space Crocodiles crew and thus with the assistance of many wonderful people in our community we will be putting on the Kurt 'Deegan' Philpots Memorial Cup on Saturday the 14th of December. This tournament is our way of honouring his memory, as well providing additional funding.

To those of us lucky enough to have met and/or played alongside you, it was an honour and we will cherish those memories forever. Thank you Kurt.
