JÁVEA SCHOOL OF BRIDGE AND SOCIAL CLUB - "PROBABLY THE FRIENDLIEST BRIDGE CLUB IN THE MARINA ALTA, COSTA BLANCA"
COMMITTEE'S WEEKLY MESSAGE 9TH DECEMBER
COMMITTEE'S WEEKLY MESSAGE 9TH DECEMBER

         Another very busy week at the club last week – on Monday we welcomed Carol and Terry Wise back for the week.  Also, on Monday we had another new entry to our 70% Club – congratulations to Anita Ramvall & Edith Schuster with 70.35% beating their nearest rivals by 9.93%; and we also had a grand slam by Liz & Roy Saunders who bid and made 7NT - on board 12 - congratulations.  They had 33 points - 4 Aces & Kings, 2 Queens and 1 Jack. On Wednesday we held our Committee Meeting and it is with regret to inform you that Tom Slatter has resigned as Bar Manager for personal reasons. Tom many thanks for your time serving the Club and your efforts in organising a different selection of wines – appreciated by all.

Then on Friday we had our Christmas Tournament/Party. 16 tables competed with 50% prizes – top 10 pairs, the 2 pairs either side nearest to 50% and also 2nd from bottom pair. We also gave prizes for a trick made with the 2C, 2D, 2H and 2S; and the first N/S and E/W pair that bid a slam. Results were a total surprise as we disabled showing positions at the end of each round.

Then the room was re-arranged for the party – what a lovely evening – 80 members and guests enjoyed a festive buffet supplied by Café Cortado’s, with the 2 Gerries’ providing background music. During the buffet we held the Members’ photo quiz – 30 of them - aged between a few weeks old thru to 18 years – some amazing answers!!  (For those that were not there during the evening you be lable to see them on Monday and they are now on the website under Who's Who!!). More music - more quizzes - culminating with Christmas Carols and our Chief Tournament Director performing “The 12 Days of Christmas” supported by Barbara and Alan – a lovely finale.

                                        

 Many thanks go especially to the 2 Gerries’ for their great performance; Barbara for organising the buffet; Bart for providing an excellent service behind the bar and also for John for directing – I’ve never known a director called so many times during a tournament. There were also so many other individuals who did their part to make the whole occasion such a huge success, that if we were to miss one out, we would be sorry, so the Committee would just like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who was involved; those who just attended had a great evening.

Tuesday Social Bridge – last session for 2017 is December 12th and reconvenes on Tuesday 9th January.

                                                                                             

A gentle reminder – please be considerate to ALL our members and stay at home if you are sniffing, coughing or sick. Thank you.

The Committee met on Wednesday main purpose finalising the arrangements for the 2018 AGM.  The President’s Letter calling the AGM  on 3rd February and the AGM has been put up on the Clubhouse notice board and also the letter e-mailed to Members’. The list for nominations for the 2018 Committee is already up on the notice board. Bulletin will be available next 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. Also, are there any members who are prepared to deal the cards – please contact a Committee Member.

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.
