Dimmie Fleming Award citation - 2018 (nomination from Cambs & Hunts)
David has been a stalwart member of the Cambs & Hunts County Bridge Association for many years and has served in a number of roles, never hesitating to volunteer when needed. He was County Treasurer from 2003-2016, and County Auditor for five years prior to that. After leaving that post, David became County Tournament Officer, co-ordinating the organization and arrange venues for all county events.
David has been one of the most regular attendees of county management meetings for over twenty years, being a voice of reason and a continuous provider of valuable input, involving himself in organizing bridge at both a club and county level. He ran the county’s flagship event, the Newmarket Swiss Teams, every October from 1993-2007; in recent years, he has helped run the County Swiss Pairs each April.
As one of the longest serving committee members, David has been a goldmine of information about the County, providing stability and continuity and helping newer officers settle into their roles. Given the length and continuous nature of his contributions, along with the variety of roles he has filled, the County believes David is an obvious candidate to receive the Dimmie Fleming award.
