Since a large majority of SBU members is classified as being in the Bronze category, Bronze is now divided into 3 bands. Bronze-1 covers up to Local Masters, Bronze-2 caters for District Masters, while Bronze-3 covers all Masters and Senior Masters i.e. everyone else below the rank of Scottish Master. SBU rankings

    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!


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

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