The SBU has launched MEMPAD (which stands for Membership and Master Point Administration Database), a major new initiative to facilitate the submission of Master Points and the administration of the Master Point system. This development involves a number of phases, but the following features are already in place:

Members can -

* update their personal contact details

* view their own Master Point status

Club secretaries can -

* view their members' contact details

* update details of their office bearers

* submit local Master Points electronically (if using a standard scoring program)

Club treasurers can -

* reconcile members'  SBU subscriptions with payments made to the SBU

You will need a password to log on to the system - to receive this, please email quoting your Master Point number.

New Tricks

For our online teaching in schools this year, we have been using New Tricks videos

New Tricks is a charity formed to promote bridge learning.

In addition to videos for schools they have created nmany fun videos for much more experienced players.

You can access these by becoming a patron for NewTricks

Please consider becoming a patron and enjoying the battle of the giants and also putting a link to this item on your club website
