MONTROSE Bridge Club member Bill Ross (pictured) has achieved the highest distinction a player can gain, and is now a Grandmaster.
He is the second Grandmaster from Montrose Club. Margaret Bell gained the honour several years ago.
To become a Grandmaster, a player has to play in numerous bridge competitions at the highest level and achieve consistently top results. An enthusiast must play for many years to amass the points to qualify as a Grandmaster.
Bill, who resides in Aberdeen, has been playing bridge for 40 years and, in addition to being a long-serving member of Montrose Bridge Club, is a member of two clubs in Aberdeen.
Montrose Bridge Club meets every Tuesday evening in the Links Hotel.
