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.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The Club's Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday February 21st starting at 7.10 p.m., with a normal Bridge Session afterwards at 7.30.  We encourage all members to attend to have the chance to have a say about the future direction of the club. Members can access the Agenda and associated papers through the 'Membership' link to the left.

One of the key functions of the AGM is to elect the Club's Officers and other Committee Members. This year, we are making a special plea to members to consider taking on one of the lead roles, because two of the current four Officers are not seeking re-election. These roles are not as onerous as they may sound - but without them the club may struggle to run smoothly.  We therefore are asking all members to think carefully as to whether you could offer yourself to be nominated for one of the roles.

Chair: the core responsibilities are:

  • to chair any General meetings of the Club, including the AGM;

  • to chair any committee meetings. [Physical committee meetings are rare, and, when they happen, usually short. Most committee business is conducted by phone and / or email];

  • to act as the front-person / spokesperson for the club as and when necessary;

  • to assure himself / herself that all other roles are being appropriately carried out;

  • to act as a cheque signatory;

  • note that it is not a requirement for the Chair to be on the Club’s Director’s rota.

Secretary: the core responsibilities are: :

  • to provide papers and prepare minutes for all General Meetings and Committee Meetings. (Virtually all committee business is handled via email);

  • to act as the primary channel for communication between the Club and the ECBA / EBU; (almost all communication is via email);

  • to hold the file of completed membership application and renewal forms;

  • to act as the primary channel for communication with Club members (almost all communication is via email, using the Bridgewebs website’s email facility);

  • to circulate requests for partners to all members, using the Bridgewebs website’s email facility;

  • to act as a cheque signatory;

  • note that it is not a requirement for the Secretary to be on the Club’s Director’s rota.

Find a partner scheme

If you are looking for a partner, you have three basic options:

  • Log in to the Members' Area where you can view current contact details for all members, and you can optionally send email(s) to players of interest to you (see the panel below about 'Accessing the Members' Area if necessary); or
  • Use the on-line partner matching service available through this website (see the panel below about 'Accessing the Members' Area if necessary); the advantage of this method is that your request is posted immediately though the disadvantage is that you may need to wait for other players to see the post; or
  • Send an email to mountCM15@gmail.com. This action will result in an email being sent to potential partners, though there could be a delay as such action triggers a manual process.

Accessing the (password protected) Membership Area

If you have not already done so, please click on the 'Membership' menu item, then follow the instructions.  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 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 services are open to you:

  • 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.
  • You can also access documents that are restricted to club members, such as, the agenda and papers for the Club's AGM
