David Hodgkins 1969-2015

It is with great sadness that we report the death of David Hodgkins at the age of 45.  David played regularly for UK teams in major international chess tournaments for visually impaired players and was a great supporter of the Haaksbergen IBIS chess event in The Netherlands.  He was also a very active member of the UK Braille Chess Association's committee for many, many years.  David was a thoroughly genuine person and will be sadly missed for his friendly and modest approach, his chess playing ability and his dedication to chess administration.  Our 2016 AGM chess weekend will be dedicated to David's memory.
