It is sad too announce that Dave Milton has passed away after a long battle with Leukemia. R.I.P Dave.
Dave was an important member of HDCA for many years, John Lawson, together with George Willoughby,Fred Worsey and others were responsible for the big Hull Congresses and Simuls which attracted some of the top players in the UK during the post war period. He also organised three Congresses at Bridlington. Dave was one of the founder members of St Andrews CC and also took over from John Lawson as Hull Daily Mail chess correspondent and Secretary of the Association.
