Hi all SDA members,
It is with great sadness that I report the death of James (Jimmy) Grant on Tuesday 8th December.
Jimmy has been one of Scotland's greatest players since the early 60's and his record as Aberdeen Champion will probably never be equaled.

As 2015 is drawing to an end, I should like to thank the people who have helped to make our tournaments a success over the year.
The people who sourced venues, trophies and all you who came to participate and make the tourneys a success.
Special thanks to Graham for refereeing the competitions and Danny our secretary/treasurer for his sterling work throughout the year.
We are hopeful that the Alex Smith Memorial competition and the East of Scotland will be in Inverness on 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st of March 2016.
I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year.

Lamont Inkster, President
