Match with St Andrew Bridge Club, Woodlands, Glasgow

For a couple of years, a variable group of card players have been learning to play Bridge with good-natured, knowledgeable tuition from Stuart Thomson, using the Benjamin ACOL bidding system. On Saturday 24th March, a group of 16 Kippen card players arrived at the stylish St Andrew Bridge club in Woodlands, Glasgow, to play a tournament – 24 hands of Bridge against a team of 16 Glasgow players. We were coffeed and wined well (and of course, biscuits…). After a tense couple of hours of play, the scores were totted up. Kippen had the most points overall, and the top scorers for the day were Peter Singleton and Dave Bentley of Kippen. Both teams celebrated at Mr Singh’s curry house – a very sociable way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening. Usual Bridge sessions are on Thursdays at the Cross Keys from 8pm and are welcoming and informal (be prepared to use dusty corners of your mind!).  

The Pig Trophy can be admired behind the bar at the Cross Keys. Contact Stuart for more information
