Congratulations to Brian Lumsden & Frank Springettt who won yesterday's 'Butler Pairs' event held at Wearside Bridge Club.
Apologies for the delay in publishing the full results.
They should be received late this afternoon. (17th June)
In a follow up to the EBU article last week about fraudulent emails, all clubs should remain vigilant with regards to “phishing” emails.

'Bridge Webs' is still causing some disruption to the publication of club results. Club secretaries have been informed of the possible short term problems. Mon 3rd June.
