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 - 25th JUNE

Your Committee met on Friday and a Bulletin of the main points is available on the website and posted in the Club house.  A few of major points that warrant expansion here are:

· Our Stratified Masterpoints Quarterly competition that has been running from 1 April ends next Thursday (30 June) and winners will be announced thereafter.   The top 4 players in Categary B with the highest Masterpoints average, over more than 10 tournaments, will be promoted to Category A.  Similarly, the top 6 players in Category C will be promoted to Category B.  These promotions will be effective from 1 July.

· In order to enhance the effectiveness of our Stratified Masterpoints Quarterly competition, seating orientation will be allocated by the cashier on your arrival at the Club for the daily tournaments on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

· Due to the significant decrease in player numbers during August, there will be no daily tournaments on Thursday during the month.

· The Club will hold a Car Treasure Hunt on Sunday 9 October – mark your diaries please.

Last week, the wrong word was used when addressing 1 Club openings when it said, quote, “TD’s decision on alerting 1C openers ...” unquote.   It should have read “TD’s decision on announcing 1C openers ...”

You will notice three pictures hanging in the Club house, produced by Audrey Quinton, and specific to the JSBSC.  A few more will be added in due course, but it is not our intention to cover every wall with a picture!

A number of our regular Directors and Scorers will be away during July and August. We ask our remaining Directors and Scorers to add their names to the Duty Rota as soon as possible for these months.  Can we also ask a number of our 'lapsed' Directors to assist during these two Summer months.  And as you will appreciate, if none of our volunteer scorers are available, paper travellers will need to be used!

And finally, if any Member has a bad word to say about our Club, we may adopt the Javea Computer Club (JCC) method of retribution.  Last Monday, an urgent message was received from a JCC member saying, “Help please, I have been locked in the club house, and cannot get out”.  It seems the individual was in the loo when the club was locked!  Luckily, Mike, a member of the JCC, and the police (he had called them as well) all arrived at the same time to let him out.

BOWLS EVENING

Several JSBSC Club Members took part in the Annual Bowls Event at the Inn on the Green in Javea last Saturday.

There was not a structured competition as some members wished to play with their guest, but nevertheless, it was an enjoyable game of 'Social Bowls' on a very warm evening.

There were 22 bowlers and three spectators joining for dinner afterwards.

Thanks to all that attended the event and to the committee members who organised the event.
