A new SBU tournament- the Bronze Pairs (you might have noticed this in the Upcoming Events, above) - is starting this season.
The North District event will be held in Aberdeen Bridge Club on Sunday 16th October.
The great thing about this tournament is that, as entry is limited to those ranked below a certain level, you will be competing in a field comparable to your own ability level. (Ed: This doesn't mean there will be no sharks, but any that are swimming around will have small teeth).
I've been asked a few times "So what is a Bronze Player?". Anyone below the rank of Scottish Master is a Bronze player. That is, Club Master, Local Master, District Master, Master and Senior Master.
So, if you are of that level, why not get your entry in. A pleasant way to spend an autumn afternoon in Aberdeen.
The SBU require 2 new conveners , Education and National Congresses.
Applications are invited to replace Joan Lees as National Congress Convener (SBU Summer/Autumn/Winter Congresses).
Congratulations to Jim Hay and Sandy Duncan on winning the Stirling Pairs yesterday, in a field of 56 pairs.
Well done to Jim Hay with team mates Kim Fryer, Andy Philip and Ross Woodburn for winning the teams event for the Greig Quaich.
And to Jim Mason, Eddie McGeough, Donald Cambell and Steve Findlay for finishing in 3rd place.
Dear Members of North District,
Welcome back to a new season of this wonderful pastime.
I have ventured out more this year taking part in a Scottish Cup heat and my team is looking forward to playing in the Scottish Plate heat. It is good fun meeting other players and it is also a good learning experience. With my partner Fumi we enjoyed ourselves at the CD Congress at Montrose recently and we are looking forward to more congresses at Aviemore and Peebles along with our partners and friends.
SBU council have been listening to questions from members such as “What does SBU do for us?”
Are you a visitor to the North District and would like to have a game of bridge while here?
The contact details of SBU-affiliated clubs are here.
Go on - get in touch and arrange for a game - you know you want to.
From time to time, we receive information/articles/opinion and other good stuff that doesn't easily fit anywhere else on the website. So we've created a shiny new blog to collate and publish this material.
Got something bridge-related you'd like to see posted on our website? Simply e-mail it to us and we'll post it for you.
Please don't send anything defamatory or that breaks copyright.
If you'd like to be able to publish material from your bridge circle or club that may be of interest to others on a regular basis, get in touch - we'd love to hear from you and help you. Don't worry - if you can type an email, you already know enough. We provide training and support to help you along too.
The North District promotes bridge through education for both children and adults.
We have a number of accredited teachers and classes are held for all levels of experience.
