It's "Creative Ice Cream Flavours Day" today, Wednesday.
An update on slams - below this article is the slam ladder for June. Last week was another very good week - 35 small slams were bid and made.
Friday, was another special day at the club. Royston presented Audrey Bridger, one of our long standing members, with a "This is Your Life" memento of her time at the club. So many of the committee are going on summer holidays so it was presented in advance of her move to California to be with her daughter for the next phase of Audrey's life. We wish her best wishes. Many thanks to Ann Mould for co-ordinating the production of the book. More photos available under "Photos Social".
Wednesday we said farewell to Gloria who is going back to England with her husband, Roger. Royston presented her with a bouquet of flowers - pictures hopefully will be on the website during the day. Gloria many thanks for your kind generosity in supplying cava for the members at the end of the afternoon - all the very best to you both and do keep in touch.

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.
From October through to May we hold bridge lessons for beginners on Tuesday afternoons from 2.30pm until approximately 5pm. New students are very welcome and no previous experience is necessary for those wishing to learn this fascinating game.
We are a multi-national club with Spanish, British, Dutch, German, French, Belgian, Norwegian, Swedish, South African, Canadian and Swiss members - play is conducted in the English language. We are proud of our reputation for being a friendly club and extend a very warm welcome to visitors and students.
