Happy Birthday today, 25th February, to Anne Lise Engan
Have a lovely day Anne Lise - best wishes from all your friends at JSBSC.
Another busy week at the club and it was great to welcome both Bill Russell & Vernon Sharpe back to the Club after an absence and also Kate McClardy. Many congratulations to Kay Corbin who bid and made 2 Grand Slams this week – on Thursday & Friday, firstly with Ann Hambrook and secondly with Janet Caley – more details below the weekly message. Hopefully we will have a new entry in the 70% club soon – it’s been very quiet this year.
We said au revoir to Lovel and Joan Lord who return to Canada this weekend – hopefully we will see them again. Jo Thompson And Richard Smyth (friends of Gary and Brenda) who have played for the last few weeks at the Club, came to Javea on Gary and Brenda's recommendation have loved it here so much they have bought an apartment in the port - they wanted Members to know how much they've enjoyed their time at the club, friendliness etc.
We have received the following message from the E-CATS organiser of the Children In Need Tournament. “Well, finally I have a total for the Children in Need event !! It’s taken a while but we got there in the end – and believe me it was worth the wait –… CUE DRUM ROLL …between us we raised … £74,173.35 - UNBELIEVABLE ! Just how high does it get ! That is a grand total to date of £ 956.122.84 !!. Fingers crossed for 2018 that we can hit that magic ONE MILLION MARK”.
A plea from our bar staff, Terry and Gloria, Members are tendering large value denomination notes in payment of drinks which is taking all of the change - we are not a bank and would request where possible Members have change for the bar or smaller value denomination of notes.
Don’t forget to remind friends/acquaitances that John Hall, our Chief TD, will be starting beginners lessons this Wednesday 28th February. John will be teaching 5 card major and strong NT, lessons will be between 10.30 and 12.30 – 10 lessons for €30 – Wednesday and Friday mornings.
If you wish to contact the Committee or an individual on the Committee regarding Bridge Club Matters PLEASE use the JSBSC e-mail address email@example.com NOT Committee Members’ personal e-mail addresses, the e-mails will be forwarded to the appropriate Committee Member.
Our 1st Quiz night for 2018 is on 10th March – sign-up sheet is on the notice board – Quiz Master/Mistress are Maureeen and John Bowen.
