Man Holding The Rubber Industry Golf Society Bridge Trophy

Thursday, 20th May was the RIGS Bridge Trophy contested Prestbury Golf Club.

Director Mark Wilding, took part in the contest:

“I have played in this competition for many years and this year, I was fortunate to win it.

The society was established in 1922 and are thought to be one of the oldest industry golf societies. The Institution of the Rubber Industry was founded in 1921 by a group of rubber manufacturers who felt it necessary to have some central organisation which would collect, discuss and distribute the increasing amount of technical information which was becoming available and so ” promote a better understanding and a closer relationship between all branches of the Rubber Industry. ”

This is achieved at every meeting and would not happen without the organisers, who spend copious amounts of their time.

Thank you to Martin Wilkinson for setting this one up!”
