Improver Lessons at the Carlton

Starting on 25 September 2018 at 13:30. This class is aimed at students who have completed the SBU Course and who have started to play in Bronze Tournaments.

The objective of the Course is to introduce topics with which the student may be unfamiliar and to reinforce earlier lessons which might benefit from revision. The format of the class is an audio visual presentation to introduce the topic and provide worked examples. Students then play 8 hands to practice what they have learned.

For full details and how to apply please see .

The bronze prize was won by Anne Young, Norrie O’Neill, Tim Lambert and Robert Thornton (65) (with Fiona Greenwood presenting).


Another enjoyable summer of bridge. In a background of scandal, bad behaviour and downright cheating, an example on how the game should be played — with skill, consideration, and of course home baking. One team even called in their reserve to play for the opponents rather than make them forfeit. I have received several compliments on their behalf. Congratulations! We hope the summer has honed your bridge ready for the new season.

As for the results — Fife Aces won very closely followed by Grange in second and Hermitage Hibs in third. The winners are pictured from left to right — Gertrud Mallon, Nicola Dean, Sue Smith and Fiona McElhinney. Willie Davidson and Dave Dunn also played for the team but were not at the AGM.
