The End of Paper Masterpoint Slips

Did you know that those paper MP certificates in your bottom drawer are going to be worth as much as a ten-bob bank note in a few days? Either deliver them to Membership Services or bin them; and please do not send them to the Rose St mailbox in Edinburgh, send them along with your cheques and any other correspondence to: G Plant – SBU 21/5 Falcon Road West Edinburgh EH10 4AD

Master Points Database

MEMPAD gives every SBU member access to their current Master Point totals and ranking, 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 information about members, clubs and SBU competitions.

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 your password.
