Bridge Tournament - 7 Nov


Sunday, 7th November 2010.

After an absence of 2 years Helen Oldfield was able to re-instigate this important event.

It’s important as it is a relatively untapped area (both geographically and socially) for us and  is held at the Bridge Club on the Golden Mile, Marbella.

Although all 12 tables were booked and the event a sell out, at the last moment 4 tables had to cancel due to a mystery virus circulating amongst Bridge players.

However with an auction and raffle we were very pleased to raise €912 owing to the fact that nobody claimed expenses and donated all the goods. Our special thanks for this to Helen, and to Trisha Mansfield for providing the finger buffet.

Picture Cat Show - 19 Sept

The Picture Cat Show held at the ADANA Dog Show on 19 September 2010 at the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona was a great success with 59 entries.  The judges found selecting the winners very difficult as the cats were all so gorgeous and obviously so well loved!

Unfortunately some entries came in too late to be printed and thus entered, while some were only delivered late on Saturday.  Those received, but too late for judging, were still displayed.  Next year you will have much earlier notice of the show and so lots of time to get your winning entries in!


East Estepona Group - 10 Sept

The second East Estepona Group get-together is scheduled for 10 September 2010 between 10.30 and 12.00. Again it will be at Bar Granada, El Pilar.


ADANA Dog Show - 19 Sept

20th ADANA Dog Show a Great Success

There are plenty of reasons to celebrate the Dog Show which took place on 19 September 2010 in the Palacio de Congresos, Estepona.  Over 300 adults attended plus hoards of children who did not have to pay so were not officially counted.


East Estepona Group - 12 Aug

On Thursday, 12th August 2010 from 10.30am to 12noon there was a get-together for coffee and snacks at Bar Granada, El Pilar.  The bar owner, Sebastian, is an ADANA supporter and has a golden Labrador that came from our kennels.  Some of the ADANA committee were on hand to give information and explain what ADANA is doing.  We hope that this will become a monthly event and focal point for ADANA supporters living in the eastern side of Estepona.


Paella Party - 3 Sept 2010

Paella Party at 1.30pm in Plaza Manilva, Estepona (outside Longman's bookshop) on Friday, 3 September.

Conchi will be making the paella again with salad, wine and ice cream with chocolate sauce included.

Tickets are €10 from the bookshop, for more information please call 952 80 0975.

With 48 hours to go only 22 tickets were sold for this annual event and the only paellera ( special paella pan) available was for at least 50 portions. The only possible solution was to pray for late bookings and to sell portions " para llevar" ( take away).
