The ABF has declared JBC the TOP CLUB in Australia in terms of Increase in Membership 2012-2020, with more new members added than any other club in the country. Read the article in the Latest ABF Newsletter accessed from the LINKS Page.
As the ABF puts it : The common factor with these most successful clubs is being led by driven individuals or highly functioning committees.
We certainly had that "driven individual" with our past-president & Life Member DAVID WHEATON, ably assisted by the many past & present committee members.
And there is no stopping us yet. JBC was one of the 76 Oz. clubs to increase membership in 2020 and has recently ascended to become the 6th largest bridge club in WA. All our beginner classes are oversubscribed and each of our social sessions now average 15+ tables.
But we should never forget what makes our club really great : our friendliness. No matter how many members, how many tables, how many beginners or elite players in a session, there should always be room for a smile, or a friendly word or some encouragment, for a patient listening ear. It's the JBC way!
