TRIBUTE TO PAUL TROWBRIDGE

I WAS DEEPLY SADDENED TO HEAR OF THE PASSING OF PAUL TROWBRIDGE AS I KNEW HIM FOR MANY YEARS AS A CHESS COLLEAGUE AND SOMEONE WHO ENJOYED THE CLUB SO MUCH.

HE REALLY ENJOYED SEEING THE CLUB GROW OVER THE YEARS AND MEETING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND DIVERSITY WHICH IS SPECIAL TO US.

HE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HIS FACE AND ALTHOUGH HE WAS NOT BLESSED WITH GOOD HEALTH AND MADE LITTLE OF ANY ISSUES HE ENCOUNTERED.

HE WENT THROUGH A PURPLE PERIOD IN HIS CHESS PRIOR TO COVID AND I PLAYED SEVERAL GAMES AGAINST  HIM AND WAS IMPRESSED BY HIS GAME.

HE WAS NOT ON THE INTERNET & SO I MADE CONTACT PERSONALLY BY PHONE AND HE WAS ALWAYS AMIABLE AND CLEARLY ENJOYED THE CONTACT AND CONNECTION WITH ALL AT THE CLUB. HE ESPECIALLY ENJOYED OUR CHRISTMAS PARTIES AT THE ELSTEAD HOTEL.

AS A TRUE POOLE MEMBER HE ENJOYED A PINT ESPECIALLY AT THE LEGION BUT WAS HAPPY WHEN WE MOVED TO THE CENTENARY CLUB.

PAUL, YOU WILL BE MISSED MY FRIEND. R.I.P.
