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 14TH JAN

First, we wish to express our sadness with the untimely passing of Linda Faulkner yesterday, Saturday 14 January.  All our thoughts are with Mike and the family.

A warm welcome to our Members visiting again from Garforth Bridge Club – great to see you all.

For those playing bridge tomorrow, Monday 16 Jan, to celebrate Mieke’s 96th birthday today, she has kindly offered to buy all players a post-tournament drink – a big thank you to her in advance.

The deadline for nominations and propositions for the AGM to be held on Saturday 4 Feb has now passed, thank you for all your inputs.  Your Committee will now finalise all the necessary paperwork, and forward you the Agenda next weekend.  All the other relevant details for the AGM will be available after this Committee’s final Meeting.

We are delighted that Tony Manuel, Anita Ramvall, Barbara Sadler and Mike Lawson have all agreed to become scorers, a big thank you.  The monthly rota is now being well populated by scorers and cashiers, but please would our directors put their names on the rota in advance rather than just stepping forward when pushed on the day.

They say ‘you only get what you pay for’ and it was so true with the ‘soldiers’ we purchased at the time of the introduction of the Lenovo tablets.  They were cheap; not surprised one went missing within the first week, and was then returned - no one wanted a cheap pen.  We have now invested in an elite regiment of capacitive soldiers fit for the task.  Not so many, but of high quality, and hopefully you will find them a substantial improvement when entering details on the screen.  These new warriors do have hearts though, so please do not hit the screen so hard that it causes them brain damage!

And finally, which famous bridge player is hidden in this sentence: “Message to Marsha – rifles are not allowed in the bridge club”.  Answers by email to the Secretary – no prize, just stardom next week!
