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 25th SEPTEMBER

Following the Committee Meeting on Friday, the two main decisions were to re-introduce allocated seating (no changing with others after allocation please) and reduced bar prices on all except tap water, spirits and choc bars.  The other issues that affect Members are posted on the website and on the Club notice board. 

With just one week left to the end of the Quarterly Stratified MasterPoint Competition, the fight for prizes and promotion is on!  In Category B, Jackie Evans and Elaine Jones are close on the heels of the leader pack, while in Category C, Anne and Alan Oliver are in hot pursuit of the top six players – may the best woman (or man) win. 

Remember we played the World Simultaneous Pairs on the 4th June (Saturday) at JSBSC with the winners worldwide getting a trip to China.  Unfortunately, neither Peter H (nor Diana) got to go!  Well the 3 day final was this weekend in Bejing.  The winning pairs from the set of hands we played were from Madeira Bridge Club in Portugal.  Others winners from Europe were from Oamx and Piraeus Bridge Clubs in Greece and Portland Bridge Club in Italy. Top runners up from Europe were a pair from Stansfield in England (71.82%) and Bridge Latina Italy (72.01%) who have also been invited.  You can follow the finals on line, a few people may be interested.  See 2016 WWBC Winners - World Bridge Federation 

The battle of all battles is planned for next weekend, Saturday 1 October.  Your Club will send a team of 20 to the Javea Bridge Club, with play commencing at 14.45 pm.  There is a sign-up list of the results noticeboard in the Clubhouse.  Please put your name on the list if you are able to represent JSBSC. 

So, finally, during a normal JSBSC Thursday Tournament, a large turkey came strutting into the Club, paid 5 and sat down at a table.  “Do you mind if I play?”  The players initially humoured the bird but pretty soon they were awestruck as the turkey bid perfectly and pulled off amazing plays.  This caught the President’s attention "You’re terrific!!  Sign up for the team event against JBC, I’ll see to it that you get a huge bonus if we win.”  “Forget the bonus,” the turkey said, “All I want to know is this.  Does the match take place after Christmas Day?”
