Welcome to the National Bridge Organisation for Scotland
Gilbert (Gibby) Reid passed away on Thursday 16th of September. Gibby and his wife Sally, who died three years ago, were a devoted couple with a strong faith in God.

It is hard to think of one without mentioning the other. They were the “Father and Mother” of bridge in the North of Scotland. Gibby came to bridge through Sally as she decided to go to evening classes to learn the game. Gibby was soon hooked and having great organisational skills he became a stalwart at keeping the game alive. Gibby loved to...

Hybrid club games - request to clubs
Following on from the recent article, Damien Byron, manager at the new Melville Bridge Centre, has produced an excellent Video at: https://youtu.be/BjeiXK8rUsY on how to set up and score Hybrid Club games- both on line and f2f using either BBO or RealBridge as the on-line platform. A number of Clubs have confirmed that they have, or are reopening in the near future. Other Clubs are keen to learn from others’ experiences. As it is for each Club to undertake and execute their own risk assessment, in the knowledge that it is for them to satisfy their Insurers and other relevant parties, it is probably best that we compile, with their agreement, a list of the...

Crete Overseas Congress cancelled
The SBU have taken the decision, together with Simon Kelly of GEBOS, to cancel this year's overseas congress in Crete. We are very disappointed to have to cancel this congress but the uncertainty regarding overseas travel has made this the only possible decision. Hopefully the world will return to normality next year in time for our congresses in Peebles in March and Majorca in May. GEBOS will refund any payment you have made for the Crete congress.
