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 Bridgepads 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 APRIL 23RD

How many bridge players does it take to change a light bulb?

Our days of using BridgePads for scoring are coming to a close.

Keith Butler, fromwww.bridgetab.co.uk, based in Cardiff, was with us yesterday (Friday 22 Apr) for our tournament when we had 17 full tables (not quite a record, but our best attendance figure so far this year).  There were the inevitable minor problems as Members used the new Lenovo tablets, but Keith was able to sort them all out, whilst playing bridge himself, and coming a respectful fourth to boot.  The biggest issue was players touching the screen for too long, resulting in a ‘jump to the next page’.  The screen just needs a single, firm, precise touch (not stab) – we intend to purchase a number of capacitive pens which will help North players input the required details.

One ‘big’ issue with the tablets is that they must be turned off properly at the end of play, or the internal battery will continue to power the wifi antennae until the following tournament, and if that is over the weekend, we will have problems on the Monday!  Not insurmountable as we can get another tablet out to use, and charge the flat unit – but not desirable.  Therefore, please, before putting our tablet away, press and hold the one/off button on the right hand side of the unit until a box appears asking, “Off”, “Flight Mode” or “Standby”, select “Off” and then select “OK”.  We will try to remind all players for a while, until we are all happy with the routine.

For those of you who played on Friday, please note that the power failure was not as a result of us using the new tablets!  Our profound thanks go to Ed, though, who stayed at the Club until 8pm.  During this time he was assisting the electrician in locating and rectifying the cause of the failure (two cables had fused together at the meter, upstairs in the main apartment block, not in our Club house) and mopping up both toilets which flooded when the pumps failed with no electricity for the couple of hours.

On our web site, did you realise that the significance of the ♥ and ♠ symbol against the labels in the left hand box?  The  means there are further sub-pages after ‘clicking’, whereas the ♠ means it is a single page.  If you didn’t know, it is something you learnt today.

We have received the following message from Audrey Bridger, Honorary Member, who celebrated her birthday last week, and was recognised on our web site on that day

I was soooo pleased to see I had not been forgotten on my birthday, many thanks!  I have settled well in my new home; after 22 years of living alone it is wonderful to be part of a family again.

I miss the Club and so many friendly faces, but am keeping an eye on you all!

Love and best wishes to everybody.

Audrey.

Ah, yes, the answer is 4.  One to change the light bulb, and 3 to say how it should have been done!
