* Well, the only way to beat this summer heat wave is to spend a good time by the pool with your children. The International Women's Club invites you to come along Wednesday mornings to Stupava Sports Hotel, where a suitable swimming pool for young children has been discovered. Guests can picnic or buy lunch at the hotel. For details contact Zora Groholová, Tel: (7) 3910-94. In case of bad whether, the location might change, so contact Zora Groholová as well to find out. Moreover, refugees from the summer heat can meet and enjoy a nice afternoon with a glass of wine and barbecued food by the pool in the restaurant "U mamičky". For those interested, food and wine will be provided, and there is a charge of 400 SK per club member or 500 SK for visitors. You can bring your own wine! (Contact Debbie Puchner, Tel: 3789-445). Another IWC activity is the Wine Club; although the club is taking a vacation break in August, wine tastings are still being held at different restaurants in Burgenland, Austria, featuring various wine producers. Each restaurant included a 5 course meal as well as wine in its offered price. For further information contact each restaurant individually. IWC tip: 21st August, Restaurant Bajazzo, Hauptstrasse 69, Oberpullendorf, Tel: +43 2612 43451.

In addition, coffee mornings are being held every Tuesday throughout August at the Hotel Danube from 10.30 to 13.00. You can enjoy coffee, cakes and conversation. Check at the reception desk for the exact location. Children are welcome. The International Woman's Club offers you also some activities such as hiking (contact Soňa Hrašková, Tel: (7) 5266-688) or tennis (contact Yvonne Lopaur, Tel: (7) 5267-715) which runs on Wednesdays from 9 to 11.00 at the Bratislava Zoo courts until the end of October.

IWC would like you to share your experiences or knowledge of Bratislava and Slovakia with other members of the club through their information bulletin. Interested contributors should send their articles by August 24 to Sue Millard (Tel: 3789-085) about their experiences travelling around Slovakia and neighbouring countries, or about forthcoming events in Bratislava.
