Christmas Congress
Christmas Congress

How about taking part in our Sixth Christmas Congress which this year takes place on Thursday 28 December (a two-session Swiss Pairs event) and Friday 29 December (a two-session Swiss Teams event)? This is an OPEN congress which means that non-club members will be welcome to come and play.

The bridge gets underway at 13.30 on both days. The entry fee is £12 per person per day. You can play on one or both days.

Players of all standards that play in club sessions of 24 boards or more are very welcome and the 'Swiss' nature of the event means that apart from the first round, where you meet a randomly drawn pair/team, you will play against opponents who are performing similary to yourself.

There will be prizes for the best Bronze and Silver pairs/teams as well as the overall winners.

Our excellent caterer will be providing the meals for those that wish to partake at £10 per person per day.

You can download a PDF entry form by clicking HERE or you can complete an on-line entry by clicking HERE.

Molly Reid Passes Away

We are sad to announce that one of our Honorary members and former club chair, Molly Reid, died peacefully on Friday Nov 10th a few weeks short of her 98th birthday.  Her funeral will take place on Tuesday 21 November at Mortonhall, at 2pm.   Not only was she a very good player who represented Scotland in the Lady Milne, but she was highly thought of as a bridge teacher.

The Purves Clock

The Purves Clock takes place on Wednesday 22 and Wednesday 29 November and will operate as a ‘draw for teammates’ competition which will work in the following way:

You enter as a pair and will get a randomly drawn pair, from the pool of entered pairs, as teammates in week 1. A standard multi-teams event will then take place, scored using IMPs.

In week 2 you will be get a second (different) randomly drawn pair as teammates and this again will be scored by total IMPS.

For each pair taking part their IMP scores for both weeks will be added together. The pair with the highest total will win the trophy.

Please click HERE to make an entry. Please note that you must play on both weeks and be members of the club.
