Dimmie Fleming Award - 2013
Dimmie Fleming Award - 2013

Tony Philpott has received a Dimmie Fleming award from the EBU. This award is made to members who have made a major contribution to bridge administration over many years at county level. Few such awards are made each year.

Tony has been a member of the association for over fifty years and following a successful national partnership with Bob Rowlands, during which time they won the National Pairs, Brighton Pairs and the Pachabo Cup (for Essex); Tony decided that family life was preferable to bridge at national level.  Since then he has won the main Essex competitions several times and has continuously played for the county 1st team. 

From 1975 until 2013 Tony has been the treasurer of the Essex association and more recently became the first Chairman of the 'Essex Selection committee'. (The association made a loss of £20 in his first year but he followed this with a surplus of £24 in his second year!). In addition Tony has always provided excellent advice to the committee on many matters.

Tony could not attend the annual general meeting of the EBU when the presentations are normally made but chose to receive his award at the Chelmsford Bridge Club. (see photo to the left, where Tony, to the right, is seen receiving his reward from John Williams, the then ECBA Chairman). The ECBA committee offer their heartiest congratulations to Tony and wish him all success in the future.
