Bob Swinston, Longue Vue, WPGA President in 1987, died on Friday, February 23. He was 82. Swinston served on the Association's Executive Committee, 1976-1993, with distinction. He was active in many areas, most notably championships and membership.

In 1991, Swinston led the Association to reorganize its dues structure to a common per member fee contrasted to billings done on a "small" vs. "large" or "metro" vs. "outlying" clubs. This simplification was well received and is used to this day.
