CONGRATULATIONS are due to club members Liz McGowan, David Liggat, Fiona McQuaker and Iain Sime who won the Scottish Mixed Swiss Teams last weekend at Hutchisons Grammar School with a score of 90 VPs.
CONGRATULATIONS are also due to club members Cheryl & Dave Duddell who won the East District Allan Flitch for married couples on Saturday with a score of 63.54%. Runners up were Ian Crorie and Lucia Barrett.
The club's efforts to raise money to support the Women's team that will represent Scotland in the Venice Cup later this year in China has amounted to £984! This inlcudes the sale of card tables (£210), a raffle and other sales (£294) and the table money from the Valentine Pairs (£480). We wish the team, which includes club members Liz McGowan and Fiona McQuaker, the very best of luck in China.

Are you interested in learning to play Bridge? If so, we offer a full range of classes extending over six terms (three years) which take you from absolute beginner to club player.
Our classes for the spring term are now well under way and will be finishing in March. (Except the additional class for complete beginners which started in January).
Full information about the days and the times along with the topics covered, can be found in the Melville Bridge Academy section of our website (see left hand menu).
There you can also submit an enquiry about current availability and future classes.
On Wednesday afternoons we run a Gentle Pairs Bridge Session starting at 1.30 pm. These are aimed at players who are currently in the second year of classes and above or for those people who have completed them but are not yet ready to take the plunge into tournament bridge.
About 10-12 hands are played under the supervision of an experienced player who will help with the bidding and play.
You can come along without a partner and will either be matched up with another person in the same position or the experienced player. The session cost £4 per person. Non members of the club are welcome to come and give this a try!
An occasional series of articles for newer (and some experienced) players.
