Coronavirus Update - June 2022

We are very pleased to announce that at our AGM in May it was agreed that we should return to Face to Face bridge at the start of the new season in September. It seems a very long time since we were able to enjoy each other’s company across the bridge table, and no doubt it will all feel rather unfamiliar to begin with, but I’m sure we will all slip comfortably back into it very quickly. We do hope that all our members are happy about this decision, and of course we will have procedures in place to make everything as safe as possible.

During Covid we were very fortunate to be able to play online bridge via the BBO platform and were able to complete most of our tournaments. This wouldn’t have been possible without the huge contribution from Chris Goode, who directed our online tournaments, week after week, for most of the last two years. We are enormously grateful for this, and Chris is due a massive thank-you. On the odd occasions when Chris was unavailable, Joe McLuckie stepped in and we are most appreciative of his contribution too. Thank you to both.

We have also been delighted during the last two years to welcome several players who are new to the club. Many of these players were extremely regular, and we really hope that they will consider joining us properly now. It would be lovely to get to know each other  better.

Education on line

Beginners course online

How many of us have friends who have said "One day I'll learn how to play bridge”? There are many opportunities for you to learn bridge online; some teachers are offering the SBU branded course materials, others are using different resources - but all  are being taught online  in Scotland . Please go to SBU/Education for more information. We are encouraging all our members to pass on the message. 

What better time than 2022 to learn new skills?
