Paul Wilson

Dimmie Fleming Award citation - 2019 (nomination from Middlesex)

Paul was the compiler and editor of the Middlesex printed competitions handbook for nine years from 1986 and if he had his way we would still be producing one today and posting it out to all county members! Paul then joined the Middlesex Committee in 1994 and has served ever since, rarely missing a meeting.

Paul has organised the Seniors Pairs for many years, assisted with the Congress, acted as proof reader and ‘ad hoc’ Membership Secretary, volunteered at Middlesex’s children’s summer bridge camps and previously acted as a TD at several of their competitions as well as being the county’s Club Liaison Officer. Paul was elected Vice Chairman in 2015 and then a year later became the County’s 11th President.

Perhaps Paul’s greatest contribution has been encouraging people to join the committee or play in one of the competitions with his infectious desire to see bridge grow. His diligence in updating the MCBA membership list is an example all Counties would do well to follow (if they don’t already). In a teaching career spanning some 40 years, Paul has taught bridge to several thousand people, including many MCBA & other EBU Members.
