JUNIORS GET A CHANCE TO SKI AND PLAY AT JBC2019

T

he South East Counties Junior Bridge Camp is moving to Bowles Activity Centre near Tunbridge

Wells in 2019. There will be the usual two days packed with bridge hands, teaching, competitions,

and prizes. But the new site will offer so much more. The organisers have arranged to have exclusive

use of the new venue with home-cooked food and both en-suite and dormitory accommodation. If bridge

is not enough, at no extra cost juniors can also pre-book an activity such as dry-skiing, rock climbing and

a choice of two adventure courses with Bowles' own instructors. It sounds like FUN!

If you know any budding bridge and mini-bridge players aged from 8 to 21, or complete beginners who

might enjoy cards, take a look at the Bowles website, https://bowles.rocks, and put the weekend of 6-7th July

in your diaries now! Parents and grandparents are welcome to join tooreg@sccba.co.uknt is being organised by the Sussex, Surrey and Kent County Bridge Associations, together with

EBED. All enquires should be directed to reg@sccba.co.uk or William Bourne at 07876 350650.

SE Counties also ran its first junior event at the

end of November. Wimbledon BC generously

hosted the occasion, free of charge, and everyone -

teachers, TDs, helpers - gave their time for free, so

the event cost just £10 per head for refreshments.

The morning was spent teaching and competitions

were held in the afternoon. Some 33 youngsters

took part and the club was buzzing (pictured

opposite).

The participants were very lucky to have a topclass

teaching line-up which included U21 and U16

national squad leaders Michael Byrne and Georgio

Provenza. EBED's David Emerson directed separate

bridge and minibridge competitions and achieved

the incredible feat of keeping both to time! June

Middleton did a superb job helping tirelessly on the

day, making the food 'happen', and organising the

Wimbledon end of the event.
