NIGEL GUTHRIE

We are sad to report that Nigel Guthrie passed away on 29 August 2022. Many members will remember Nigel as a regular player at Reading Bridge Club and in B&BCBA and EBU events until his return to Scotland in about 2010. He played in the League of 8 Reading A team with Stuart Maurice and in the B&BCBA Tollemache Team. He was Double Dummy compiler for Bridge Plus magazine. He was 11 times a winner of the B&BCBA County Teams, County Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Mens' Pairs, Swiss Pairs, Committee Cup, Waller Bowl and Jarrett Cup, about half of which were in partnership with David Barnes. Nigel will be missed by his many bridge partners and other friends. A longer tribute by former B&BCBA partner Paul Gipson can be found at:  https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/nigel-guthrie-rip/

Membership

MEMBERSHIP

Any member of the English Bridge Union who has not chosen another County Association as his or her county of prime allegiance is eligible to become a full member.   Membership of the EBU is automatic for members in good standing of a club affiliated to the Union.   Others may join by direct subscription – for details, click on “Useful Links” and from there to the EBU website.

EBU members may choose their county of prime allegiance, and may change this once in each year.   In the absence of a choice, members are allocated to the county of the first club that registered them as a club member.   Thus those who play regularly in clubs affiliated to Berks & Bucks will normally be members of this County Association, this will not be the case if their prime allegiance is elsewhere.

 

Full members do not pay a subscription, but anyone, whether member or guest, playing in an EBU affiliated club pays a “pay to play” charge each time they do so.   Affiliated clubs do pay an annual subscription.   The rates for the financial year commencing on 1st April 2020 are as follows.
