Sam Lynn's 90th Year
The Bangor Chess Club player Sam Lynn (Born 12th December 1908-Died 1st November 2002) passed away at the age of 93 after a short illness. Sam had competed as recently as that summer's CIYMS Tournament, where he belied his years by scoring 7.5 points from his 12 games. Sam was a universally popular player and his enthusiasm for the game was infectious. In earlier years he had been an organiser as well as a player. Below is a tribute to him by David Magrath which first appeared in the 1997-1998 UCU Yearbook.
