JACK DAVIES – 101 AND STILL PLAYING REGULAR COMPETITIVE BRIDGE

JACK DAVIES has been very much involved at the working end of the West Midlands

Bridge Club, and is one of its two surviving founder members.

In the very early days when the premises at ‘909’ were acquired and used under

licence, he took full responsibility for all repairs to the building and can still tell some

wonderful stories of what was discovered at the time.

When the premises were bought by the club members, Jack was one of the early

directors, and became known as the man with the notebook in which he noted all of

the items needing attention – something he continued to do until the nineties. A par-

ticular feature at the club is the bar; Jack personally worked all of the timber for the bar

and supervised the fitting. Visitors are still very impressed with the quality of the work-

manship and of the specially imported timber used – Yugoslavian Beech – which is still

as good as the day it was installed.

Jack partnered his wife, Peggy, two or three times a week for almost forty years at

West Midlands Club until shortly before her death in her 98th year.

Jack still enjoys the company and greatest respect of all of the members of the Clcb

whenever he plays, and still manages to be regularly in the frame at the sessions he

attends – to which he drives himself!
