NIGEL GUTHRIE

We are sad to report that Nigel Guthrie passed away on 29 August 2022. Many members will remember Nigel as a regular player at Reading Bridge Club and in B&BCBA and EBU events until his return to Scotland in about 2010. He played in the League of 8 Reading A team with Stuart Maurice and in the B&BCBA Tollemache Team. He was Double Dummy compiler for Bridge Plus magazine. He was 11 times a winner of the B&BCBA County Teams, County Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Mens' Pairs, Swiss Pairs, Committee Cup, Waller Bowl and Jarrett Cup, about half of which were in partnership with David Barnes. Nigel will be missed by his many bridge partners and other friends. A longer tribute by former B&BCBA partner Paul Gipson can be found at:  https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/nigel-guthrie-rip/
