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.

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.
