Welcome to Mountnessing BC
Our Club in brief...
Our Club in brief...

We are a friendly medium sized (10-14 tables) bridge club that meets every Thursday evening at Mountnessing Village Hall to play duplicate bridge.  Play starts at 7.30pm and pairs should arrive at 07:15: if you arrive unannounced after 7.25 you may not get a game. The club uses wireless scoring and computer-dealt boards.   Visitors and players with limited experience are always welcome, but note that you do need to have arranged a partner in advance as we do not currently operate a 'host' system.

Ladder awards 2016-17

The top three places in the year long ladder awards were as follows:

Faye Wernick Trophy (Ladies' Ladder): 1 Lorraine Butler; 2 Catriona Lovett; 3 Joan McGuffin.
Lionel Wernick Trophy (Men's Ladder): 1 Alaric Cundy; 2 Chris Megahey; 3 (Jointly) Les Curtis & David Piper.
See the full final standings under the 'Current Ladder Tables' menu item to the left.

Rules:

Both events are only open to club members, though any sessions played partnering non-members also count.  To qualify for an award, a minimum of 20 sessions must be played during the year.  There will be separate awards for Women (Faye Wernick Trophy) and Men (Lionel Wernick Trophy).  The ladder score will be the simple arithmetic average of all qualifying scores, without, for example, any weighting to take account of the number of contestants in each session.  A maximum of (best) 40 scores will count in the final calculation at the end of the membership year.  As the year progresses, the cut-off for inclusion within the displayed tables will roll forward on a pro rata basis, starting from 1 session, and gradually increasing to 20 as the year progresses.  Full statistics for an individual player's scores during the year will be accessible through secondary menu items associated with the two Ladders.

Wireless Scoring at Mountnessing

We are now using the 'BridgePals' wireless scoring system, which was originally developed by John and Mirna Goacher for use at the Chiselhurst Club.  We are now able to get the results loaded onto this website within about 3 minutes of the entry of the last score

Players need to identify themselves to the system by using the Mountnessing-specific "short-code", which is just 1 - 3 figures long.   There are lists of 'short-codes' available at the club, covering all members and most of our past visitors. To access your short-code, then either follow the instructions below to access the club membership list, or look on the list at the club, or otherwise please contact Alaric.

Finding a Partner / Membership Area

Carol McCue is now the Club's 'Find a partner' co-ordinator.  Carol can be contacted on lcarolmc@gmail.com or by phone.  Club members can also use the new on-line facility, as below.

If you have not already done so, please click on the 'Membership' menu item, then follow the instructions in the right-hand boxes.  Enter your email address as your 'name' and then press 'Forgotten Password'.  You will then receive an email with a password that will enable you to log into the membership area.  NB You MUST use the email address by which the club recognises you, e.g., the one to which Secretary John Sutcliffe sends you club-related messages.  Once you have registered on the system in this way, you will be able to log into the membership area, where several options are open to you.  In particular, you can view the current club membership list, on which you can find your 'Club ID', which serves as your personal 'short-code' for the wireless scoring system.  You can also register that you are seeking a partner.  Note that in the Calendar summary to the right of this pane, if you spot the message Partner? then it means that at least one potential partner is available;  if you spot the message Bookings then it means that at least one partnership has been arranged - but there could be another partner available.  Click on the Partner? or Bookings message to reveal details.

Old Mountnessing Website (2006 - 2015)

With grateful thanks to Theo Todman, the vast bulk of the old original website is available once again as an Archive record.  It includes a host of things, including the results back as far as Spring 2006, old statistical summaries, old news items, various guidance documents, plus some sample convention cards that were intended for use primarily by 'scratch' partnerships.  Click on this panel to be redirected to the old website (opens in a new window).
