Club Champion: Albert Steg

Finalist: Tom O'Riordan

The NEBC lost a Giant and gentleman in the person of Herb Gurland in May of this season. Herb kept the club afloat during the lean years of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, and he is the only player to date to surpass Bill Robertie’s 6-title record by earning 7 Club Championships between 1990 and 2015.  Herb might well have won an 8th had he not succumbed after a long battle with a rare disease known as Pemphigus Vulgaris. A fighter to the last, he participated in our May 2015 tournament the very day before his passing.  Herb will always be remembered and missed at the NEBC.
