Club Treasurers are encouraged to send payments for SBU memberships to the SBU Treasurer, either by cheque or preferably direct to the SBU bank a/c. When writing a cheque please make it out to "The Scottish Bridge Union" in full. 

Club Treasurers are also encouraged to top-up their store of MP credits on Mempad (still £22 per 100 certificates) so as to cover the next 6 month's usage. Both these measures would reduce the workload of  our volunteers. ..Thank you.

Conversion of historic Local BLUE Points to National (red) Points will take place during September. Since this may lead to a number of promotions, a new ranking list will be produced as at end September for use in upcoming ranking events.

3rd September 2019

A new season dawns, fresh hopes, new plans, hope springs eternal, this season it will be better! 

Two good competions to enter in September, the Stirling Pairs and the Edwin Berry Bowl Teams, and also watching how out Scottish Lassies do in the VeniceCup in China - September will be a good month for Scotland.

19th March 2019

Payment by cheque to the SBU from members/clubs/districts is still of course welcomed, but please make out any cheques to "Scottish Bridge Union" in full words. Our bank is insisting on this. In future, any cheques made out to "SBU" risk being rejected. We much prefer payment by internet banking, provided that there is an adequate reference. It helps bookkeeping if payments are not merged, one payment for one activity - please.

NB. You are reminded that the POSTBOX in Rose Street Edinburgh is now closed, please address payments and correspondence to the SBU Treasurer (see below).

Cheques, MP certificates and other Member Services correspondence should only be sent to ...
