TUESDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS

The club is no longer using book-keepers for these sessions. Please note the arrangements for members wishing to play on these sessions.

TUESDAY EVENINGS

Members are asked to put their names down as pairs on the Tuesday Evening sheet in the club. Members wishing to play but without a partner are also asked to put their names down, and if possible, they will be paired up.

THURSDAY EVENINGS

  • Members wishing to play on Thursday evenings must arrange their own partners and are asked to put their names down on the Thursday evening sheet.
  • In order to give the TD and scorer time to set things up, members must turn up by 6.45 at the latest.

MEMPAD

The club is now registered on MEMPAD, a computerised data base with information on SBU districts, clubs and members including their Master Points ranking. For those who have not already done so and wish to log on to MEMPAD, send an Email to "masterpoints@sbu.org.uk" quoting your Master Points number (its the same number as your SBU membership number on your membership card). You will receive instructions as how to log on using your Master Points number as your user name (ID).

ARRANGEMENTS FOR MASTER POINTS

All master points gained in club sessions including simultaneous pairs are now transferred electronically to the SBU and MEMPAD. Results from all club sessions except Wednesday evening will continue to be forwarded for Master Points. 

There are still a few historical paper certificates awarded from other competitions (e.g. Simultaneous Pairs Competitions) in the small filing box in the club room for members to collect themselves and forward to:

  • SBU Dept.#16
  • 196 Rose Street
  • Edinburgh EH2 4AT

Submission forms for postage of paper certificates are available in a folder pinned to the club notice board.

Welcome to Biggar Bridge Club
Kello Hospital

Cathy has presented a cheque for £107 to the Kello being the proceeds from the bridgefest night played recently.

WEB SITE CHANGE

Members may have noticed that we now have the hands available on the results page.

Click on the travellers tab and full hand descriptions are now displayed.  The hands tab gives a choice of e-mail or download of hands in different formats. Any member who has a bridge playing program, e.g. Q-Plus, can now replay any hands dealt at the club.

TDs please note that hands are now viewable on the TD menu of the BridgeMate hands sets.

Biggar Bridge Club General Information
Biggar Bridge Club General Information

The purpose of the site is two fold.  Firstly to provide a convenient point of contact and information for existing members and secondly to spread the word to the larger community that Bridge is alive and well in Upper Clydesdale. 

Founded in 1997, the club has a membership of around 100 coming from Biggar and many places in surrounding areas. The club moved to the upper floor of the Biggar Business Park in June 2012, where it enjoys modern comfortable accommodation comprising a main playing room for up to 9 tables, a small side room used for small groups, classes and committee meetings plus a well equipped kitchen and toilets. 

The club runs regular weekly sessions in the evening (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and afternoon (Monday and Friday). Classes based on the Scottish Bridge Union Curriculum are held for beginners and those who want to just brush up their Bridge each year; these run from September through to April. In addition the club runs two league teams, "Biggar" and "Tinto" in the Lanarkshire Bridge Association; the teams are currently competing in the first and second divisions respectively. Other activities include participation in periodic national simultaneous pairs competitions and occasional workshops for more experienced members.

The picture shows the club's main playing room.

Dealing Machine
Apart from league matches, all hands are prepared in advance on the club's dealing machine for club sessions. The hands are prepared by a small group of volunteers and the picture shows two of  the volunteers, Carola Craise and Eleanor Weir, in action.
