Dimmie Fleming

Austin has been playing bridge in Lancashire since 1972

and has served the county in various capacities from 2005

until 2018, including as chairman. With his vast

experience as a top county player and, indeed, a national one (he

represented Wales in the Camrose), as a tournament director and a

club administrator he was an invaluable member of the Executive

Committee.

He has been a long standing member of Bolton Bridge Club where,

for the 10 years from 2007, he was both President (CEO) and Club

Tournament Director.

EBU Awards 2019

This award is made to John

Magee universally known as 'Mr

Bridge' for his work in

popularising duplicate bridge in

England and beyond. In addition

to running a successful magazine

and bridge holiday business he

has made significant

contributions to clubs across the

country, affiliated or otherwise,

and he has helped our game

adopt innovations and prosper

over several decades.

JOHN MAGEE (MR BRIDGE)

Tony Priday Award

BERNIE HUNT (ESSEX)

Dimmie Fleming

Bernie has made many contributions to county bridge

over the last 20 years. He has served on the ECBA

committee for 10 years and continues as County League

Secretary. He has introduced many new players to the game, running

courses for beginners and bringing them through to experienced

tournament players.

Over the last few years, he has invited the county to run all their

events at his club which has greatly reduced the amount of committee

work involved in delivering events and player numbers are up on

previous years. The EBU also use his premises as a venue to run

National Pairs, Portland Pairs and Ranked Masters Pairs events within

Essex, which benefits all players.

Bernie is one of bridge's great enthusiasts. It is infectious and he

continues to encourage many people to take up bridge and 'get the

bug'.

LIZ STEVENSON

(MERS & CHESHIRE)

Dimmie Fleming

Liz has been on the

County Executive for

more than 25 years. She has

served as Vice-Chair and Chair

and subsequently as Chair of the

Tournaments committee -

organising and running many of

the county events herself. The

county's healthy financial reserves

are mainly due to profits made

from events she organised at a

time when they were more

popular than they are, alas, today.

In the days when the county

produced an events brochure, Liz

and her husband David always

organised its printing and the

address labels for distribution. MORE AWARDS OVERLEAF
