Trevor`s CHALLENGE

During the official 30 day mourning poeriod, an English polyglot decided to learn to recite and write the Thai national anthem in toto.

Did I succeed? Sceptics can come and challenge me to the ultimate test:  To see if I can write the anthem without any help - and without making a mistake. The challengers merely have to pledge a donation to one of HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha`s charitable foundations. She is King Bhumibol`s eldest grandchild and the lady who sponsored the bridge Cup competition in October that made the achievements of my Samui bridge pupils possible.

The challenge is open for the unofficial one year period of mourning. To show Thais that foreign guests are also keen to ensure the late King's tireless`work for children is not forgotten.

SPECIAL  ANNOUNCEMENT

We would like to extend our condolences to all of our Thai friends on the passing of their beloved king.

As you are probably now aware from worldwide news reports, the king is revered especially for the 70 years he spent tirelessy helping poor and underpriveleged Thai children.

It was fitting therefore that, the following day, the Samui Times published an article detailing the extraordinary achievements of Samui`s bridge youngsters in Bangkok the previous weekend. The article is particularly timely given that the national bridge competition in which the children were competing was sponsored by his Majesty`s eldest granchild,  HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha.

The children broke many records in a very competitive bridge world. They and other very young Samui bridge students will undoubtedly continue to break records. Something of which his Majesty would have been very proud. :

  NICKNAMES

A humorous look at some of the member`s pet names. I list only the defining characteristics of the Hog, the Chimp and the Walrus. Because, apart from the hideous few, they are mostly a lot of old charlies and right walllies in this club.

  • Rueful Rabbit
  • Colin the Corgi
  • Oscar the Owl
  • Peregrine the Penguin
  • Molly the Mule
  • Timothy the Toucan
  • Karapet
  • Hideous Hog (HH), by far the club's best player, but also an insufferable shark who seeks to humiliate opponents for their mistakes
  • Charlie the Chimp would rather post mortem the last hand than play the next. He is an exponent of sharp practice at the table, once famously producing a remarkable (and impossible) quadruple squeeze against himself by retaining a small card to conceal his own revoke
  • Walter the Walrus, whose expertise in and devotion to the point count are matched only by the utter mess he makes of bidding and play
