CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Jávea School of Bridge and Social Club (JSBSC) holds duplicate tournaments every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons commencing promptly at 2.15pm. Thursday afternoons are NO FEAR Bridge.
We ask that players arrive by the latest 2pm thus leaving the Director and Scorer sufficient time to establish and set up the movement for a prompt start at 2.15pm. 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, Australian 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.

The price will be €30 for Members and €35 for Guests – this includes an aperitif, 3 course meal, coffee and half a bottle wine/person. Please, if you wish to attend, either e-mail the Club or let Katrina know.
A busier week at the club last week on the bridge front – with 3 Grand Slams and a number of small slams bid but no additions to the 70% Club. Congratulations to the G/S pairs – Marianne & Tony; Kay & Maggie and Ann & Kay. Many thanks again to everyone who has helped set up/tidy-up/move items to and fro our new temporary venues – tables etc and dealing the boards very appreciated. We were pleased to welcome back Ann Phillips and Kate McClardy this week and also Terry & Carol Wise for a quick visit even managing to twist his hand to direct on Friday – thanks Terry; look forward to seeing you in June for a couple of weeks. It was lovely to welcome Liz’s sister, Roz, on Wednesday and then on Thursday – No Fear day – it was great to see Margarete Gray, Thelma Foster and Liz Dow join us – hopefully we will see some more of our Tuesday Social Members in the next few weeks; and also, Eileen Rook an old Member.
This week’s bridge schedule is – Monday at the Inn on the Green; and Wednesday, Thursday & Friday at the Parador – normal start times but please ensure you are there before 2pm to assist setting up the Movement. As we mentioned previously there are a number of our Members who do not have e-mail access – please continue to ensure they are kept up to date. Tuesdays’ Social Bridge is on hold until further notice.
As we mentioned last week, until we know more regarding our financial position prizes will only be given to the 1st pair – both orientation in a Mitchell Movement and the 1st two pairs in a Howell Movement; in addition free play has been stopped for Directors’, Scorers and Cashiers for the foreseeable future – thank you all for your understanding.
It was agreed at last week’s Committee Meeting to cancel the Pairs Club Championship this year which was scheduled for Saturday 8th June.
Report from the Back to Playing Bridge WG – as we mentioned last week, we heard from the Town Hall of an alternative venue which we visited on Monday only to be told that it was booked every afternoon – not great communication between the various departments. However, they are continuing to look for other possibilities. We are still awaiting news from the owner of the Pinosol.
Report from the Recovery WG – we are still awaiting to hear from the Government Insurance Assessor regarding our financial settlement – hopefully we will hear within the next 10 days. The cleaning and disposal of flood damaged items/debris in the Clubhouse is well underway. We have arranged to meet the Architect at the Clubhouse on the 30th May to start our recovery program, hopefully, by then we will know the sum available.
See separate article regarding the Summer Party.
Obviously with the closure of the Clubhouse you have NOT been able to buy greeting cards from Janet or Audrey so our ASPADIS charity is missing out. Janet will be bringing a selection of her cards for you to choose from next week. Audrey's cards can be found on the following website www.audreyq.co.uk where you can review her selection of cards for customising.
Congratulations to Anita Dixon & Peter Hindley who bid and made a Grand Slam of 7♣ on Monday 20th May.
