It's Australia Day, today Monday.
WOW - what a relief Monday afternoon was for the committee - our members first looksie at our "new clubhouse". Why were we worried! We received excellent feedback from all - the 3 week closure was well worth it. See the article below from the President of the Javea Computer Club. There are still a few additional things to do but hopefully they will all be complete by the AGM.
Our thoughts are with Jenny Carter - her partner Clive had a heart attack at the beginning of the week - good news is he is out of intensive care. Pety is poorly again - we are thinking of you. On Thursday Veronica was taken to hospital with chest pains whilst playing at the club - good news is she is OK and back at home - Bernard be kind to her! On a serious note our thought are with all 3 members.
Documents for the AGM which is on Saturday 7th February will be on the website over this weekend. Don't forget your subscriptions for 2015 are due.
Don't forget teaching has started again on Tuesday afternoons' and our Thursday afternoon DVD show starts again this Thursday, 29th January, starting at 1pm sharp.
The "Opening Celebration of the Clubhouse" on Friday 30th January after bridge with cava and snacks - we have extended the tables to 20 - only one slot available. As you arrive you will be given table allocation and direction and there will be 2 pools.
The club logo entrants, to be used on our all our publicity/stationary, were reviewed at the committee meeting on Friday. There were 13 entries and these have been reduced to 3 for members to vote on next week.
An excellent week for slams - 22 small and 4 grand slams were bid and made. Congratulations to Eric and Colin; Janet and Maggie; John and Derrick; and Royston and Barbara.
The committee would request that now the winter is here please help our members and stay away from the club if you have flu, a cold or a cough.
