It's Dot Day, today Monday.
A committee meeting was held yesterday and the main item discussed was the proposed refurbishment of the club house. An EGM has been called by the Committee for Wednesday 1st October at 12pm on this topic only. EGM details are being e-mailed to all members and a copy is available at the club on the notice board. The proposal is also available under the "News Page 2014" banner. The social and tournament schedules have both been updated and also the priority table allocation list.
Our match against the Valleys is on Saturday 4th October - a sign-up sheet will be available at the club next week for those people interested in playing - Royston will be choosing the team.
It is good to see so many more of our "summer lock and leavers" returning to Javea and the bridge club, particularly a warm welcome to Linda Faulkner.
Another very poor week for slams - only 7 small slams were bid and made. The summer handicap prizes have been presented for each day - list of winners under the "Competitions" banner.
Don't forget to find partners for our NEW tournaments end of September/early October. These are normal duplicate tournament format but there will be on
Friday 26th September - MIXED PAIRS
Wednesday 1st October - LADIES PAIRS
Monday 6th October - MENS PAIRS
- cups will be presented for the winners of each event. You will be able to play as normal when it is not your "category". Please note the director of the day will be sorting out the movement and you may be asked to move table/direction.
Our teaching program commences on Tuesday 7th October and there will be lessons for beginners and 2nd year students. In addition to this a number of members are prepared to give seminars on specific topics - if there is anything you specifically want covered please e-mail the club and we will try and get it covered. Please advertise these lessons to your friends. Teaching notices are available for promoting around the areas - if you are able to assist please contact John Taylor who has copies of them.
