Committee's Weekly Message 19th March
Committee's Weekly Message 19th March

Many thanks to everyone who supported our EGM on Saturday - a very successful and necessary meeting.

The membership unanimously approved the new 2017 Committee, the 2016 accounts and also  the 2017 budget – a major step forward.

The 2017 committee then informed the membership of the issue we have with the statutes.

“In summarising this issue – our 2015 Statutes were translated into Spanish and sent to the Justice Department in Alicante for approval; after a couple of tooing and froing with Websters solicitors,  whom we were using,  the Statutes were finally returned approved in April 2016.  We then had them translated back to English – the 1st translator we used ended in a product which was unreadable so a 2nd translator was used.

However, due to a number of translation mistakes it is necessary to have parts re-written according to the specific requirements of the Club.  This issue was discussed at the last Committee Meeting in January (of the 2016 Committee) and it was agreed that we would need to form a small sub-Committee to work on the Statutes again, possibly needing to call an EGM to explain the issue and get them approved, before getting them translated into Spanish, and then re-submitted to the Justice Department in Alicante”.

The committee want to be totally open with the membership on all issues, less personal matters, which is why we raised it at this EGM – as it will incur additional solicitor/translation costs in this FY.  We will form a sub-committee to get the ball rolling and keep you fully posted on progress.

Following the EGM we had a tournament with 11 tables participating, followed by superb tapas.  Many, many thanks go to Perlie Harris who produced and presented such a lovely buffet table – photos of this are under “Photos Social”. We must also thank everyone who helped on the day in ensuring our 1st bridge/social event started on a high. It was so nice to see everyone enjoying themselves with some partners present – a great atmosphere. The next such event is on Saturday 22nd April – Individuals’ Tournament /Social with a St George’s Theme – put a note in your diaries.

It was with great sadness that we informed you of the passing of Judith O´Reardon on the 14th March.   A Celebration of Judith's Life will take place at the clubhouse on Saturday 25th March at 1pm - all invited.

Many congratulations to Jane & Ed who celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary on Saturday – can’t understand why they didn’t want to come to the EGM!!

We received the following thank you note from Beryl, Ted Coleman’s partner:

 “Hello Members. Thank you so much for the card you sent me which I received this morning. I will show it to the family when I next see them. Ted enjoyed playing in the club when we lived in Javea and on our visits over the last 6 years. He was a regular player here up until a couple of weeks before he passed away, it was a big part of his life. Thank you again and best wishes to everyone. Beryl”

Many thanks to Barbara and hubbie, Alan, who have made the area outside protected so we do not have any other “visitors” into the area above the ceiling tiles.

Our new laptop has been installed by PC Highways, and hopefully we will be using it this week once we have “Scorebridge”, our scoring package, installed on it.

We are still waiting to hear from Javea Sol regarding approval of a central handrail to the front entrance – even after contacting them 3 times!!

The sign-up sheet for our 1st Quiz Night of 2017 on Saturday 25th March – is up. Meg is providing the cakes – if there any members willing to offer to make sandwiches could they please have a word with Barbara.

Have a good week-end.

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.
