JÁVEA SCHOOL OF BRIDGE AND SOCIAL CLUB - "PROBABLY THE FRIENDLIEST BRIDGE CLUB IN THE MARINA ALTA, COSTA BLANCA"
COMMITTEE'S WEEKLY MESSAGE 19TH NOVEMBER
COMMITTEE'S WEEKLY MESSAGE 19TH NOVEMBER

A busy week on the bridge front last week and lovely to welcome Pam and Don Cheshire back. Wednesday was our Children In Need Tournament where we raised €200 for the charity – thanks to Richard for organising the event. On Friday we held our Annual Remembrance Tournament which was closely fought till the last round – with Dick and Richard the winners and David and Royston runners up. There was a glut of slams bid and well done to Dick and Richard who bid and made 7 and Nelke and Jan who bid and made 7NT. We finished the week off with our Annual Team Tournament – congratulations to Ann Carpenter, Marion De Havilland, Maggie Harris and Kay Thomas who were the winners and the runners up were Pat Fisher, John Hall, Maaike and Gitte. Unfortunately, the trophy was not available to be presented so pics will be taken later. Many thanks to John for directing/scoring the event.

Below is a message we have received from Elaine Jones – Hi Sue - Could you just pass my thanks around to your members for all their good wishes. I am now home at last and hopefully on the mend, although it has been a lengthy and scary experience, with septicaemia in the UK followed up by Cellulitis back here in Spain.  Fortunately, all the bacterial infections now appeared to have been cured, and have just left me very weak and somewhat immobile. Now it is a period of rehab and serious gym work to gain strength and fitness again!  I am hoping to join Richard in South Africa later this week to carry this out, however, that depends on the visa department tomorrow, if not, I will have to stay here to carry this out for the next few weeks.  I am sure he will prove to be the best carer!!, as long as it does not involve bridge, I will let you know how we get on. Thanks again to everyone Love Elaine xx”.

Our thoughts are also with Janet and Syd Carter – Syd is now in La Xara hospital recovering – popped into to see him today but, unfortunately, he was fast asleep.

Our ASPADIS tournament is this Saturday 25th November – please sign up if you are attending on the Tournament notice board – raffle tickets are being sold by Ann Mould – please give generously. Please bring bottles and jars for the tombola and pass to a Committee member. We are pleased to say that Bart will provide a bar service during the afternoon and his payment will be donated to ASPADIS – thanks Bart.

The Students’ Tournament/Dinner is to be held on Tuesday 28th November. There will be a tournament during the afternoon followed by dinner at La Cocina – all members’ welcome – sign-up sheet is on the notice board.

                      

Our Christmas Party/Tournament is on Friday 8th – tickets will be available this week - €5 for members and guests. If you wish to play bridge that afternoon please sign up on the sheet on the Tournament notice board – maximum 18 tables with 50% prizes. Buffet will be served approx. 6.30 followed by entertainment from Gerry on the keyboard; Mike and his boys singing and also a guest appearance singer; these will be intermingled with some Christmas Quizzes. Please don’t forget to pass any photos of you as “kids” to one of the Committee Members in a sealed envelope for one of the quizzes of the night.

At our Committee meeting on Friday it was agreed that subscription renewals for 2018 will revert back to €30, subject to approval at the next AGM – Katrina is collecting fees now. The AGM will be held on Saturday 3rd February – initial paperwork will be available early in December – start thinking now regarding Committee nominations and resolutions. Bulletin of key points from the meeting will be available during the week.

If there is anyone interested in either learning to score or direct please pass your name to one of the Committee Members. We are looking to run a Director’s course in the New Year.

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.
