CLUB CHRISTMAS CLOSURE

As happens every year, the Club will be closed over the holiday period while our staff take a vacation and we complete the end-of-year audit of bar stocks, with the Club Censor, our internal auditor.

The Bar and Restaurant will therefore be closed for the end-of-year audit and holidays from 7:45 pm on Sunday, December 18th, reopening on Monday, January 2nd. During this time there will be no access to the Club interior upper level and the Queen’s Room.

External facilities, the gym, and the changing rooms will be accessible from 9 am to 3 pm on the weekdays before Christmas (Monday 19th to Friday 23rd).  Members will be able to play tennis, use the gym and use the Club grounds as well as the changing rooms and showers. External cleaners will come in once while our in-house team are on holiday – please, as always, leave the changing rooms as you would like to find them.

The Club will be completely closed from 3 pm on Friday, December 23rd until 9 am on  Monday, January 2nd, 2023.

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season, and hoping to see many of us at our Christmas Black Tie Dinner on Saturday, December 10th.

Bridge News - September 2022

It's time to start playing tournament bridge again at the SAC, and we're proposing to hold a first traditional Individual Tournament on Tuesday 27 September, beginning at 2.30 pm.
The easy part of this tournament is that you do not need to find a partner, but, of course, you are welcome to bring along as many friends as you like, so please do let Jenny () know (with a copy to Anne () if you can take part. Currently, there are enough players for 5 tables, but it's still possible to sign up as there is no limit to the number of tables we can cater for, provided we are a multiple of 4; and again, you do not need a partner!
At the end of the tournament, Raymond Natanson will be presenting the Oliver Langhorne Fair Play Trophy, the Henri Natanson Cup as well as the Freddie Chakour Trophy to the winner of our afternoon tournament. And this will be followed by a buffet campagnard, offered by the Section.
It is also time to renew your licences - the price being the same as previously, i.e. €57 (cheque made out to the SAC Bridge Section). A renewal form is attached to the main article, but only needs filling out if your personal details have changed.
Please let Jenny know if you'd like to participate this coming season in the Interclub competition!
Also attached to the main article are the provisional minutes of the 2021 AGM.
