Bronze News

Bronze Pairs Event

The combined results of the three centres that took part (Manchester, York and Edinburgh) are here. Congratulations to Keith & Ishbel Clark who finished third overall out of the 86 pairs that took part. Congratulations also to Christine Anderson & Jim Williams for winning our local heat.

Bronze Rankings

Changes to the Bronze/Silver/Gold categorisation were made at the start of the season. 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

Where possible, the East District is running parallel events alongside its major competitions for bronze players only.

Master Points Database


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 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
