When a Friend Goes Missing
On 12 July 2012, `Fiji and Friends` member dave3889 noticed that zambora had not logged in for five days. This was uncharacteristic for him and people immediately started to worry. Zambora had been known to have health issues and people were curious to know if he was alright. After eight days, friends like ninefourfour and katsweetie had been attempting to contact him through previous methods of offline contact with no luck. Oceanian GM, GM-Cyntech also attempted to contact him but did not receive any response. After two weeks, his friends were really worried and were trying everything they could think of. Seb04 and keefer had also joined the search. It wasn't until keefer's repeated attempts to call zambora's phone number resulted in a disconnection notice on 9 August 2012 that sparked a different track of enquiry. It ended with the discovery of zambora's obituary on 10 August 2012 (printed by Melbourne's Herald Sun), and when someone contacted a relative, all the pieces of the puzzle fit into place. It was a disheartening end to the search, but at least the search was over.

Zamboras 'Kool Kittens' played against Cambos 'CambosKids' on 49 occasions. The first match was on 19/8/2009, the last match on 4/7/2012.
"Over these last 3 years i would religously receive a HT mail from Zam every 3 weeks reminding me that our battle was due again.
This was a real rivalry and the results of each encounter were watched with interest. After trailling in the head-to-head, Zams Kittens won the last 4 matches and he went out a winner leading 25-24.
Every time I play a YA friendly from now on, I'll think of you Zam."
