Change to Bronze Rankings

For the commencement of the 2016-17 playing and membership season (1st September) the SBU is changing the MP scheme.

As well as creating a new rank of Regional Master, the Bronze category will be split into four groups (presently three), so that bronze prizes can be better tailored to the mix of players in any particular event. In general terms, entry to ranked events and/or prizes will be based upon a three-monthly snapshot taken on 1st Sept, and thereafter on 1stDec, 1st Mar, and 1st June of each year.

A listing will be published and available on the SBU website and/or MEMPAD shortly after each three-monthly date.

The SBU Council believes these kind of measures will make the ranking system more responsive to the needs of the majority of our members who are bronze players.

New Regional Master Ranking

For the commencement of the 2016-17 playing and membership season (1st September) the SBU is introducing a new rank into the MP scheme.

This rank of Regional Master will recognise the endeavours of experienced Bronze players who are half-way to the Scottish Master rank; that is those who have gained an overall total of 100 MP, and within that at least 25 National (red) points. The Regional Master rank is classified as SILVER, thus opening up the possibility of these players now playing in a different set of ranked competitions.

All existing qualifiers for this rank will be informed directly by Sept 1st (please make sure that your details are up to date in MEMPAD).

Also by Sept 1st we will divide the Bronze category into four groups (presently three), so that bronze prizes can be better tailored to the mix of players in any particular event. In general terms, entry to ranked events and/or prizes will be based upon a three-monthly snapshot taken on 1st Sept, and thereafter on 1stDec, 1st Mar, and 1st June of each year.

A listing will be published and available on the SBU website and/or MEMPAD shortly after each three-monthly date.

The SBU Council believes these kind of measures will make the ranking system more responsive to the needs of the majority of our members who are bronze players.

Master Points Database

Visit MEMPAD

This season we have a new combined membership and master points database named MEMPAD. Visit it here.

MEMPAD gives every SBU member their own area where current Master point totals and rating can be seen. This information will be updated daily. In the new season clubs will submit master points on-line (only for club one-session events at first) so you will be able to see your MP totals updated relatively soon after you have played at your local club. There’s also various other information available about members, clubs and SBU competitions.

This really is an excellent system, and very easy to use. email the Master Point Secretary () and ask for a login.

Remember to quote your MasterPoint number; you can then register, update your personal details (address, telephone number, email address etc.) and change to your own personal password. Ultimate objective after successive phases — no more wee pieces of paper!

Constitution

Here is the Constitution of the East District as approved at the AGM in May 2011.

The Official History of the Scottish Bridge Union

176 pages of fascinating information and photographs for just £10. The Book will be on sale at all major SBU events. Or contact Liz McGowan or Anne Perkins to arrange collection.

The Laws of Bridge

The SBU implemented the new laws on 1st September 2008. Copies of the Laws are available from Anne Perkins at a cost of £3
