Atholl Cup Draw

Briggs beat Kirkwood

Jeff Bond drew the names out of a hat (well bowl) after the finalists and semi-finalists from last year had been placed in opposite halves of the draw. First round to be played by Nov 30th if at all possible.

As we have exactly 16 teams, the winning 8 will proceed to the 2nd round to be played by Jan 14th and the 8 losing teams will enter the Atholl Plate with the losers from Goodman & Fraser match playing the losers from the Home & Leith match and so on down the list of teams. 1st round of Atholl Plate to also be played by Jan 14th if possible.

Master Points Database

How to get at your points

Visit MEMPAD now.

MEMPAD gives every SBU member their own area where current Master point totals and rating can be seen. This information is updated daily. Clubs submit master points on-line 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.
