David Hughes

TCA Treasurer, DCC President

David is an chess enthusiast and founding member of the Devonport Chess Club (DCC) and former member of the Burnie Chess club (BCC). He has supported school chess in his capacity as a secondary school teacher and encourages as many people to enjoy chess as a past time as well as a contest.

David rediscovered chess after quite a few years out of the game, and has played in an Australian Championship (minor division) and a couple of Australian Blitz Championships.  David regrets having no significant impact in any of these events.

Outside of chess David works at Devonport High School as a Maths and Science teacher, and has been a life long Richmond Tigers fan, as well as a West Ham United fan. He specialises in supporting mediocrity and lost causes. David likes to garden organically in his home garden and eating his home grown fruit and vegetables. He has two adult children who currently reside outside of the state.
