Nat Corrigan

Nat Corrigan, a retired dentist, first became associated with bridge administration in 1964 as delegate for the Toowong Bridge Club and has been an active member of the QBA Council for 16 years. He was Vice President of the Association in 1964 and assistant secretary for three years serving on numerous sub-committees. He was Tournament and Programme secretary in 1973 and 1974 during the time when many country clubs became affiliated and he was always eager to assist them with technical advice.

He represented Queensland at the ANC in 1972 and was a member of the team which won the Victor Champion Cup in 1973. He has been President of the Brisbane Bridge Club and the Queensland Contract Bridge Club.

His greatest contribution to Queensland Bridge has come in more recent years, since his professional retirement, when he has made himself available to give tuition to country members. With his wife Mary he has travelled as far afield as Cairns and Goondiwindi with a minimum cost to the Association. His tuition tours have not only helped club members improve their standard of bridge but he has met with club committees and, when required, assisted them with administrative and technical problems.

His quiet and unassuming manner has endeared him to all and he has been a wonderful ambassador for the Association as possibly one of the best known of the present QBA Council.
