The Richmond Trophy is awarded annually to Canada’s top masterpoint winner. The trophy was donated by Dave G. Richmond in 1976 and awarded retroactively to the 1974 and 1975 winners.

Dave Richmond was a well-known Winnipeg bridge figure. He was elected treasurer of the Winnipeg Bridge Club in 1951, became Winnipeg’s 2nd Life Master in 1958 and in the same year assumed the Presidency of the Manitoba Unit 181. Under his leadership the unit flourished and grew from about 80 members to over 500 members. He sponsored Saskatchewan’s entry into District 14 and also helped Thunder Bay become a full fledged member in the District. He served two three-year terms as President of District 14 and was second alternate of District 14 for six years.

Richmond was a registered Life Member of the National Goodwill Committee of the ACBL and a member of the Board of Governors of the ACBL for District 2. Richmond’s greatest concern was for the charity aspect of the ACBL and he claimed that he derived the most satisfaction when he and his committee brought the Charity Shield to the Manitoba Unit for the first time in District 14. The Charity Shield came to the Manitoba unit two years later for a repeat performance.

Richmond and his charming wife Nettie chaired four Regionals and hundreds of bridge players admired their dedication and attention to every detail to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of all the players.
