Committee's Weekly Message 23rd April
Committee's Weekly Message 23rd April

A busy week at the club this week with both our Easter Tournament/Bonnet competition on Monday and our Individual’s Tournament on a St George’s theme on Saturday.

Many thanks to Janet who bought and bagged the Easter Eggs for members and bought the prizes for the bonnet competition. Unfortunately only ladies turned up for the competition so they also received the prizes that were allocated for the men. Congratulations to Barbara Sadler who won the bonnet competition judged by Bert and Marianne our guests from Holland. Photos are on the LH Banner under “Photos Competition".

Then on Saturday we held our Individual’s tournament with 40 members participating. There was no surprise when John announced the winner Hindley – but what a shock when it was Diana – many congratulations. She received 6 lovely bottles of red wine supplied by Chorri Mari our wine supplier.  In 2nd place was Chris Threlfall and another shock winner in 3rd was Tony Myerscough. The afternoon was followed by a St George’s theme supper – thanks once again to Barbara for organising the event and to Perlie for her excellent cuisine. In addition many thanks to all the members that provided dishes. It was lovely to see all our members and partners enjoying themselves. Pictures will be available on the website over the next couple of days. Many thanks to Richard for organising the tournament ably assited by John. Best dressed person on the day was Royston dressed in his St George's shirt.

On Friday 2 Grand Slams were bid in NT – congratulations to Janet C & Kay C and also Tony & Marianne S.

It was good to see Eric, Ann & Alan back at the club last week.

Welcome to our new member Sandra King – enjoy your tournaments.

Our Improver’s course on 5 card major and strong NT starts this Tuesday, 25th April, 1.45 for 2pm, for players who have at least 6 months playing experience. In addition social bridge also reconvenes at the same start time for all capabilities.

The convention cards/covers will be available on Monday – the intention is for all regular partnerships to have these available on the table and for the opponents to review them, if they wish, prior to the round starting. A box will be available for Members who wish to leave them in the office after play.

We had a committee meeting on Friday – a bulletin will be available during the coming week.

Favourite Restaurant In the area - My preferred dining is Barbara's cooking; otherwise either a Sunday roast lunch at Monroe's or at La Boudquilla, situated below our apartment in the Port Javea

Favourite thing to do other than Bridge In the area - Playing snooker with Ed and Mike F on a Tuesday morning (the banter is better than the play) and being part of our Quiz team on a Friday evening

Who would you most like to play bridge with who you have not played with before - I have played with so many different members over the years but have yet to partner Marianne Speck and Eric Atkins which I would like to do one day

Any other comments - I would like to suggest removing the 'Thing you least like about the Club' question from the profile and add:

'Thing that would most improve our Club'. My reply would be to introduce a Host Rota.

BRIDGE SCHEDULE
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.
