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 24TH JULY

A quiet and pleasant week at the Club, with numbers down as usual during the summer.  One area still of concern though is the reluctance by a few to accept your Committee’s introduction of allocated orientation for seating.  The introduction of the Quarterly Stratified MasterPoint Competition was squarely aimed at awarding prizes to those players who do not normally win prizes at the daily tournaments, and we assess that is working.  However, in order to improve the competition, E/W and N/S players need to be distributed with equal ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ players, and therefore your Committee introduced the current method of allocation on 1 July.  Please, do not swap because you and your partner don’t like the orientation given by the cashier on your arrival at the Club – it is not fair on all those others who have accepted theirs!  It is being done for a good reason, and honestly, at the end of the day does it really matter – as long as you have an enjoyable afternoon playing bridge?  If there is a good reason for a particular orientation, please ask and a sympathetic view will be taken.

The monthly rota has just been updated and there are a lot of gaps for directors, scorers and cashiers during August.  Please, if you can, do.

The last of our three sponsors is Webster Asesores who paid for our telephone list this year.  They provide services on taxation, inheritance, fiscal and legal matters, by a team of highly qualified professionals with wide experience.  So, my plan for today is to take my computer to PC-Highway for a software clean to get rid of all unnecessary processes and Trojans, a defragmentation of its hard drive and reconfiguration of windows services for just €20.  Then I will contact 100% Plumbing to get the drains checked out before the family arrive next week.  Then, finally, I must contact Webster Asesores to find out my legal rights when after just one day, the ‘family of seven’ invade and have driven me mad!

And finally, during a history lesson, the teacher briefly went through the Kings and Queens who rule countries. “But” the teacher continued, “there is a higher category of power. Can anybody tell me what it is?”.  One child blurted out, ‘Aces’!

MASTER POINTS WINNERS APRIL/JUNE 2016

The first trimestre of our Stratified Master Points Competition is now completed for the District, Area and Club Masters for April through June 2016.

Congratulations to Peter Hindley and Derrick Holdback who both managed to score over 1000 points in this three month period. Peter also had the best average in the District Master section with 29.26 % closely followed by his regular Wednesday partner Anita Dixon who accrued an average of 23.14 over the same period.

In the Area Masters Competition we are pleased to announce Peter and Lyn Shrimpton and Marcel Dewart and Colin Bond will start July in the District category after obtaining the best four averages in the Area Class over the last three months. A special mention goes to Maggie Harris who finished second in the Club Most Master Points section behind Colin Bond.

The Club Masters Group was a closely fought competition and the promoted players are Liz Ayling,the pairs Angela & Colin Benson and Pam & Don Cheshire, Bridgette Eber and Pety Bos who had the best Club Master averages. Liz achieved a 15 point average which was enough to get promotion at Area Level to District Level as well so she will start July along the District Master players. Finally, honourable mentions go to Ann Mould, Mark Urwin, Diana Hindley, Ed Morley, Joy Ingham, Richard Murgatroyd and Kay Corbin who were other club members who finished in the Top Ten of the Club Level Most Master Points section.
