The current club membership year ends on March 31st - which means that we are nearing the end of the season for the Club's two annual Ladder awards. See the details under the 'Current Ladder Tables' link above. The current front runners are:
Faye Wernick Trophy (Ladies): Sue French
Lionel Wernick Trophy (Men): Chris Megahey
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.
Congratulations to John Sutcliffe & Dennis Valtisiaris who won the Mary Rogers Trophy on March 21st.
For those who are unaware: this Trophy was introduced into the Club's calendar by former owner Lionel Wernick. Mary Rogers was a long-standing member of the Club, who also had successes in County events. Her husband, Jack Rogers, was also a very regular player at the club until terminal ill-health prevented him from so doing in 2008.
There was a new entry in the 'Seventy Club' on March 14th when Chris Megahey & Alaric Cundy scored 74.11%. For a complete list of scores over 70% scored at the Cl;ub since September 2006, please see the sub-menu item under the 'Current Ladder Tables' link to the left.
