Coming Soon

February kicks off with the Bronze Challenge Pairs at the Carlton. This open Bronze competition lasts about 4 hours, playing 24-26 boards. It is split by rank to allow those in classes or less experienced to play fewer boards, more slowly. Commentary by Liz McGowan will be supplied, and entry is £14 per pair. Prizes for all levels

The following day has the district's National Pairs Final, also at the Carlton.

Saturday February 16th has the ever popular Allan Flitch tournament for married couples. £15 per pair, and starts at 6pm.

Into March, and the Cowan Cup (our premier pairs competition) takes place at the Melville on Sunday 10th March, starting at 12 noon and running through until rougly 7pm (it is a 2 session event). Entry fee is £20 per pair. Silver and Bronze prizes are up for grabs. The top 2 pairs will be selected to represent the East District in the Spence Cup in Ayrshire on 25th May.
