On behalf of the County, I would like to thank all the players who made themselves available for the annual fixture against the Scottish Southern District Bridge Association.

Once again, we were well provided for by the host team, and the usual superb buffet tea provided by the Southern District Players.  The whole day was a very pleasant occasion, made even better by another win.
