Dr. Jim Blaikie

The Club was very sorry to hear of the passing of member, Jim Blaikie.

Jim was a G.P. in Toowoomba and always took a very active part in community affairs and many clubs and organizations but when he retired he took up bridge as well.

In our club he was particularly active being a member of the Management Committee, being the driving force in fund raising, and applying for grants, etc. He became a Director passing both exams, a member of the Tournament Committee and was very helpful in approaching sponsors.

In appreciation the club has decided to hold The Jim Blaikie Day yearly on the Monday closest to St. Andrew’s Day, 30th November in memory of the time and devotion he put in on the club’s behalf.

Sincerest sympathy is extended to his family and friends.
