The Scottish Bridge Clubs’ IT User Group  was set up following a recent meeting about Mempad.  It is a made up of volunteers in bridge clubs who do the techie stuff:  maintaining club computers and supporting the bridge dealing and scoring programmes.

 The group has three aims:

To provide help and advice to the SBU in developing their software systems that affect bridge clubs.

To act as a User Group for Scorebridge.

To share our technical expertise to help those supporting the IT in bridge clubs.

We are happy to provide what assistance we can to clubs with problems.  If you would like some help you can email the convener, Mike Baron at .

We hope to provide regular help and tips about supporting the IT side of bridge.  The tips will appear on the SBU web site.  If you would like to join our mailing list, email me at the above address.
