We have not had much of a summer up here so I'm sure a number of Scots will be travelling down to play in the EBU Summer Congress in Brighton this weekend. Even though the sun is not guaranteed, at least the shingle beach is.
I am only playing in the second weekend, the Swiss Teams, but will try to follow the progress of the Scots in the Swiss Pairs and then the midweek events. A number of the top UK players will be missing as they have headed for guaranteed sun in Lille for the World Bridge Games, and the Transnational Mixed Teams may rob Brighton of more than just the international teams. I think this will mean the competitions are more open than usual. A chance for everyone to shine!
Results will appear on the EBU website and, probably quicker, on its bridgewebs site.
