Nigel Marlow and David King were the best placed Berwick pair as they finished sixth with 58.26% at the Carlton Bridge Club in Edinburgh.
Defending champions Nicola Corbyn and Tony Houghton scored 51.85% but were out of the master points, as were Christine and Ian McCreath.
Last Tuesday the club combined a Wilf White evening with theECatsBridge/WBF Charity Pairs. As Ecats did not award master points for this event, normal awards were made by the club and will count towards the George Martin and Betty Kelly trophies.
Congratulations to Sandy Duncan and Brian Thomas, the leading club scorers with a national score of 63.08% and 18th place overcall.
They were followed byAnn Love & Julian Bales who scored 59.57% in 33rd place, withChristine McCreath & Colin Edney...
