We are sorry to hear of the death of Terry Blackman, from Warrenpoint GC Bridge Club.
Member, Michael A. Mc Namee writes:
“Terry was always a committee member in my time, and probably the principal driving force within the club. He was the person who brought Bridgemates, dealing machines and an on-line presence to our club. Very modest, his computer skills were breathtaking, and we shall sorely miss his abilities to set up and maintain the club website.”
