BRIDGE SCHEDULE

Jávea School of Bridge and Social Club (JSBSC) holds duplicate tournaments every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons commencing promptly at 2.30pm.  Thursday afternoons are NO FEAR Bridge.

We ask that players arrive by 2pm but NO later that 2.15pm thus leaving the Director and Scorer sufficient time to establish and set up the movement for a prompt start. We use Lenovo tablets for scoring and use pre-dealt computer hands.

The tournaments are conducted in the English language and to EBU Guidelines.

We are a multi-national club with Spanish, British, Dutch, German, French, Belgian, Norwegian, Swedish, South African, Canadian and Swiss members - play is in English. 

We are proud of our reputation for being a friendly club and extend a very warm welcome to visitors and students.

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE - WEEKLY UPDATE
A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE - WEEKLY UPDATE

HERE IS THE WEEKLY MESSAGE  FROM THE COMMITTEE - UPDATED MAY 29TH

Great to see Mike back at the Club this week, albeit still a bit wobbly on his pins.  His smart wicker drinks trolley is helpful for him, but please, able-bodied members, collect your drinks from the bar, and return all empties to the bar.  When Mike starts tap dancing on the bar, then you can let him collect your abandoned glasses!  So, in the same paragraph, a huge big thank you to both Ed and Jane.  Well, maybe not so much to Ed for being there at the Club every tournament day for the past 15 weeks as he is the Vice President so he should be working his socks off.  However, his lovely wife Jane has been a complete star.  In her own words, working behind the bar has periods of complete hectic activity, and also long periods of complete boredom, watching us lot play bridge.  Through all that time, though, she has served us with a smile, kind words, topped up glasses, and never moaned once.  We all thank you tremendously Jane. 

Now for something completely different - would you believe it!  A Committee member sitting North last week input the wrong declarer – outrageous.  Another Committee member sitting East, accepted the wrong input and presses ‘YES’ – horrendous.  Embarrassingly, I was one of them, and how many times have I banged on about “it is always player input errors, not the tablet getting it wrong!”

We all make mistakes, but please can we all try to minimise the number of input  errors.  On this day in question, in addition to me accepting an input error, on 33% of the boards, an opening lead was also input incorrectly.  For those of you saying, ‘that doesn’t matter much’, please, it does.  There was also a East/West hand switch on this day, and it was only confirmed by an analysis of lead cards.  We go to the effort of recording the lead card, so please make sure it is correct.  The way we would like this to happen is by North asking East (or West), as he/she taps the screen to select the lead card, to confirm it is correct – simple.  However, if E/W miss it, and asks to see the lead card that you input, just press the ‘back arrow’ in the bottom left of the screen, and the lead card is shown – just as simple. 

Now, whilst on the subject of tablet inputting, please would Norths’ ask East/West to confirm their names are correct after entering all player numbers.   Thank you

And finally, light travels faster than sound. This is why some bridge players appear bright until you hear them speak in the post-mortem.
