Next stop FRANCE

World Schools Championships

Fifteen Samui youngsters currently aged 7 to 13 have been officially invited by the French Bridge Federation to participate in this event. To demonstrate their skills in front of journalists and TV cameras from around the globe. Same place & same time as the World`s top bridge players compete for the famous      
Bermuda Bowl   



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. 

Samui Immigration
Immigration has moved

Returning residents and visitors requiring extensions should note that Immi has moved from Nathon. Now in Maenam. On the right 300m from the ring road up Soy 1 which is the mountain shortcut to Lamai opposite the police station.

Walking distance from the club. You can now apply for your extension on the way to the club - and play whilst they process your application!

The new Immi building and the cafe/snack bar are quite impressive - but our coffee is better!
