George Pyrich RIP
Very sad to hear this. George was one of those organisers and players who quietly and efficiently gave an awful lot to the game and its players over very many years and will be greatly missed.

George also crossed my path outside of chess. When in 1980 I joined the old Exchequer and Audit Department in London (now the National Audit Office) to my considerable surprise I shortly found myself seated at the desk he'd used while briefly in the same Department. I had no idea that he had worked there, an unusual form of chess and auditing double check.

George had left a year or so earlier and later told me that he had decided that London wasn't for him and that he'd returned to work in local government finance in Scotland, which he'd missed. A very sad loss, indeed.
