CORONAVIRUS AND BRIDGE IN THE WEST DISTRICT

In line with SBU advice, all remaining West District events of the 1919/20 season have been cancelled. This concerns, in particular, District Simultaneous Pairs III, Strang Teams-of-4 and the Erskine Trophy Teams.

With regard to the West District Leagues the following decisions have been taken -

Due to the ongoing situation the West District Committee has decided to suspend all League Matches. We shall allocate a score based on this season’s position to any matches which have no relevance to promotion or relegation. We shall hold back meantime on those matches that are meaningful and make a decision later on whether they can be played or not. Likewise the JJ is suspended meantime.

The Fixture Meeting which is usually held in June will be put back, possibly until August, all going well.
 

The Buchanan, Hamilton and St Andrew clubs have already decided to close for the time being, and others are no doubt considering their position.

When visiting bridge clubs in the current situation, please follow the routine of washing your hands frequently and using anti-bacterial hand gels where available.
