The EBU has recently updated its policy statement, which also applies to Mountnessing Bridge Club, please.
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).
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.
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;
note that it is not a requirement for the Secretary to be on the Club’s Director’s rota.
