Congratulations to Kenny Watson from Peebles, who (playing with Martin Garvey) won the Congress Swiss Pairs event, played over three days from 8-10 September. Kenny reports a decent standard, green pointed,with one or two big hitters playing, including John Holland.

Chalmers Trophy update

Following an appeal, Sandy Duncan and Bob McPaul have been declared the winners of the Chalmers Trophy last Saturday. As you will have seen, there was a three-way tie for first place. The rules on splitting this are quite complex, and this was not done correctly on the day. We apologise for any confusion.

Congratulations to Bob McPaul and Sandy Duncan, winners of the newly launched ED Swiss Pairs event for the Chalmers Cup. Full Chalmers results at Melville site.

With only 2 VPs covering the top 5, this was a close affair! Losing out on split ties were Harry Smith & Roy Bennett and Iain Sime & Fiona McQuaker. All three top pairs finished on 96VP.

Top Bronze pair were Rose Simpson & Kathy Whaler. Best Silver (on 94) were Andrew Harborough & Tom Bagnall.
