Reg Busch was President of the QBA for two periods; 1973-79 and 1983-86.
After a period as a country doctor in south-east Queensland, he moved to Brisbane in 1971, and rapidly became involved in administrative roles with the QBA. In addition to his times as President, he was state masterpoint secretary from 1973-1974, national masterpoint secretary from 1977-1979, QBA treasurer from 1981-1982, ABF councillor from1975-1979 and 1983-1987, and QBA tournament secretary for 14 years.
Despite this formidable administrative load, he still remained active as a player, as illustrated by the fact that he managed to qualify for the Queensland Open Team on three occasions with three different partners.
In these days of the early third millennium, his name is probably associated most closely by QBA members with his outstanding contributions to the teaching and accreditation of bridge directing. For many years he has been a leading figure in this aspect of the game in Queensland, and is still plays an active role as a director of congresses in the state.
