Camrose Edinburgh 9-11 Jan 2015 (1st weekend)
The Camrose Trophy or “The Camrose” is an annual bridge competition among open teams representing the home nations of Great Britain and Ireland: England (EBU), Northern Ireland (NIBU), Republic of Ireland (CBAI), Scotland (SBU) and Wales (WBU). As such it is the open teams-of-four component of the “Home Internationals” organised by Bridge Great Britain. Since 2005 a double round-robin is scheduled on two weekends. With six teams, each weekend comprises five rounds of three head-to-head matches, a single round-robin. A match is now 32 deals scored at IMPs and converted to victory points (VP). So every team plays 320 deals in the entire event, 64 against each of its rivals.
This year the first weekend was in Scotland, with the second weekend in Northern Ireland from 6-8 March 2015. For this reason, the sixth team in the event is NIBU, representing the Northern Irish Bridge Union.
