Sharing Sad News

Ken Allan died Thursday evening, May 24, after a valiant 15-year battle against Parkinsonism. For 30 years Ken was one of the top and most respected bridge players in Kingston. His bridge achievements include 5032 masterpoints (Diamond Life Master), 23 Regional wins, a 15th place finish in the 6-session Life Master Pairs North American Bridge Championship, and two bridge mystery novels, Deadly Endplay and Shades of Grey.

Ken was a player of utter integrity and a model of deportment at the bridge table. He codified his preferred method, a version of Precision, in the K-Club, an excellent system which he played with several partners, but his bidding style was unique and inventive.

His illness eventually ended his competitive bridge career, but he never lost his love for the game, and continued to play occasionally until a few months before his death.

If you wish to make a donation in Ken's memory, donation cards for Parkinson Canada will be available at the club on Friday, June 1st along with a drop-off box.  Cheques can be made out to Parkinson Canada. Envelopes will be available for cash donations.

You put a new twist on the "C" section.
