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.

DERRICK & VICKI HOLDBACK
DERRICK & VICKI HOLDBACK

 

It is with greatest sadness that we have to inform you that Derrick and Vicki Holdback have passed away. 

Their funerals took place on Saturday 10th December, at 11am at Javea crematorium.

It was followed by a wake and celebration of Derrick and Vicki's life  at the Bridge Club afterwards.

Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with their family.

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

HERE IS THE WEEKLY MESSAGE FROM THE COMMITTEE - UPDATED 4th DEC

Monday 5th December, the new trophy is ‘up for grabs’ for the Pairs Championship with results calculated using your individual percentages from this year – a handicap tournament.  Start at the normal time, nothing out of the ordinary, except no one has a clue who the winning pair will be (which means a Mitchell movement with an arrow switch to give a single winning pair).

Then, on Thursday 8 December, it’s ‘party time’.  Tickets are still available, free to Members and €5 to spouses, partners or guests.  One important point though, if you wish to play bridge that afternoon, and you already have your ticket, you must still put you name on the sign-up list in the Clubhouse as seating is limited to just 18 tables.

No one has yet come forward to volunteer to teach next year, hence it is unlikely that there will be any bridge lessons in 2017.  A great shame, as it means no new ‘fresh blood’ coming into our beloved game.  So, the Javea Bridge and Social Club marches on!

With the cold weather, many of us are wearing coats or jackets to the Clubhouse.  Please use the coat hooks in the rear passage-way to hang these garments rather than the side tables or the back of your chairs.  It looked like a bomb had gone off in the room on Friday!  If you do not, we will help you, but that will make it more difficult for you to find it at the end of play!

A big ‘Thank You’ to Anne Lise Engan and her husband, Ingar, who again this year opened and checked every bidding box to ensure that all the pre-requisite bidding cards were ‘present and correct’.

Last week we considered the voter, this week we spare a thought for our Members for whom English is not their first language, with the following:

The bandage was wound around the wound.

The farm was used to produce produce.

The dump was so full it had to refuse more refuse.

We must polish the Polish furniture.

The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

Since there is no time like the present, he decided it was time to present the present.

A bass was painted on the base of the bass drum.

When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

I did not object to the object.

The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

There was a row amongst the oarsmen about how to row.

They were too close to the door to close it.

And finally, I can see the sea.
