I am now back from our holiday, refreshed and ready to face all that the SABF has to offer.
Firstly and most importantly, I want to wish both Peter and Glenda Jackson every success in their new venture in Mexico.
What you both contributed to bridge in South Africa cannot be measured and we can only thank you for your dedication and expertise and willingness to always be of assistance whenever possible.
It is with regret that we have to say goodbye, our bridge community will be the poorer with you leaving, but please come back and visit, there will always be a place for you here.
Congress is now looming on the horizon and unfortunately until we have all the entries in, we are unable to give you exact times for the events. Please let us have your entries as soon as possible even if you wish to pay on the 16th April.
We hope to be running the Tournament Director's course in Johannesburg at The Links on Saturday the 15th May ( day after congress ends). We will have a morning session from 09h00 till 12h30 and on the Sunday the 16th from 09h00 till approx 16h00. We will endeavour to accommodate out-of-town participants in our homes to avoid unnecessary expense and there will not be a charge for the actual course. We urgently need to have your commitment if you will be attending so that sufficient course material can be prepared. (We are just waiting for final confirmation from Dr Mesdary)
A reminder that the Inter-Provincials will start on the Wednesday afternoon proceeding Congress and we will be needing those entries from the provinces as soon as possible so that we can advise times of sessions.
I want to take this opportunity to wish a Chag Sameach as well as a very Happy Easter to all our players.
