Barry McAdam, 12th October 1938 – 7th June 2015
It is with much sadness that we report the passing of Barry McAdam, a well known figure on the UK and European backgammon circuits over the years. The funeral will be held on Wednesday 24th June – see ‘Comments’ for further details.
Barry was a member of London’s Double Fives club from its inception and continued playing, in both his regular chouette and occasional tournaments, until a couple of months ago. He had been ill for some time, although he did not let this prevent him from enjoying backgammon. The picture above shows Barry winning the 32 player Ealing Club Sunday tournament in October 2013.
