PETER ADER MEMORIAL –WEDNESDAY 16th DECEMBER 2015 at 7.30pm
Peter Ader was a remarkable man who had the vision to save the Central Bridge Club from certain closure in the late sixties. He loved bridge and encouraged a whole generation of young bridge players to take up the game in the early seventies.Many of those players became top National and International players. Amongst them were Michelle Brunner,John Holland,Alan Mould, Gary Hyett, Rosie and Alan Hudson,Rodney Lighton and Barry Myers(who lost to John Holland in the Gold Cup final at the weekend).In his memory we play a one session duplicate session for the Peter Ader Memorial Trophy. Hope that members and friends make the effort to play!
