Welcome to Mayflower Bridge Club
Welcome to the Mayflower Bridge Club Website

Mayflower Bridge Club meets on a Tuesday Night at Mountnessing Village Hall @7:15 for a 7:30 start. A very sociable club that attracts an excellent standard of players.​

There are normally 8-10 tables (though a little depressed in these difficult times) of hard-fought but friendly bridge all under the auspices of the EBU.

Visitors always welcome. 

Club AGM - 24th May 2022

The Club AGM will be held on Tuesday 24th May. This will be an important meeting for the future of the Club, so please would members make a note in their diaries and make every effort to attend. 

To provide time for full discussion and bridge afterwards, the AGM will commence at 19:00. 

The Agenda and briefing papers will be made available to members in good time ahead of the event. It is unlikely that there will be time for AOB on the night, so would members with matters they wish to raise please let a member of the Committee know at least a week ahead of the event so they can be included on the Agenda.  The following documents relating to the AGM are attached:

ECBA ANNOUNCEMENTS

The ECBA is holding its annual AGM at Barleylands on Saturday 14th May, at 14:30, with a free session of duplicate bridge after the meeting. This AGM is important as the ECBA Committee is up for re-election, with our own John McCoy standing as the new Chairman and other Club members also standing for places on the ECBA Committee. For further information, see the ECBA Website

The three Club Competitions have now reached their conclusions. Congratulations to:-

  1. John Sutcliffe and Robert Elliott who won the two-session Club Championship Pairs by a comfortable margin.
  2. Robert Elliott who won the Individual Ladder
  3. June Brown and Dave Warren who won the Pairs Ladder

Well done all. Click on the links from the competition names above for full details of the final standings.  

Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

Thanks to all who competed in the first session of the two-session Club Championship Pairs on 22nd March which doubled as support for the Ukrainian emergency. All table money was donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, and - including members' generous donations - a total of £200 was raised which doubled to £400 when donated via theBigGive

Covid

There are no longer any legal Covid restrictions. So, while the Club Committee will continue to monitor how this should affect the Club's policy, it has been decided that we should now relax our 'terms of play'. So:-

  1. If you are diagnosed with, or show symptoms of, Covid or Flu, we would still expect you to stay away until you are recovered. 
  2. Asymptomatic attendees may of course wear masks if they wish, but need not do so, nor take a Covid test unless circumstances suggest they should.
  3. All should use hand sanitizer on entry to the Club.
  4. Unvaccinated individuals may attend at their own risk. 

We hope these measures will continue to provide a safe environment for all our members. 

Cornell Trophy - 13th February 2022

The Club entered two teams of four in the above event, held online this year. Both teams performed very creditably, finishing in the top half, with our B-Team coming in ahead of the very strong Mid Essex A-Team. Well done Teams!

For the full results, see the ECBA Website, or click here!

SIMS - Tuesday, 8th February 2022

The Club entered the EBU SIMS in support of the EBU Junior Squad. 

Well done to Dave Piper & Les Curtis for winning the Mayflower heat. They came 2nd nationally, ignoring robots, though in a disappointingly diminutive field. 

The National results and the booklet / hand analysis are available online here

ECBA Successes

Congratulations to June Brown who won the Ladies' section of the ECBA Gwen Herga on Saturday 15th January 2022, also to Cath Fox as runner-up, and to Ashley Sawyer, Brian Davies & Paul Mollison with won the Gentlemen's section

Also, well done to Ashley (him again!) who won the Blue-Pointed Swiss Pairs, jointly hosted on-line by the ECBA and Somerset CBA, on the previous Sunday and to Simon Moorman & Peter Oake who were runners-up. Other Club regulars did well in a large field. 

Follow the links for full details. 

 

SIMS - Tuesday, 11th January 2022

The Club Committee has decided to spice things up a bit by supporting some EBU SIM Pairs events. This coming Tuesday sees the Winter SIM Pairs in memory of Peter Jordan, whom some members will remember from Overseas Congresses and other EBU Competitions. 

The cost is £5 including Club table money. 

Well done to Pat Johnson & Simon Moorman for winning the Mayflower heat. The National results and the booklet / hand analysis are available online here

Club Ethos

I play on a Bridge website playing teams and happened upon a Swedish Team's logo, fortunately in English:

Play Fair

Play for Fun

Play for Knowledge

Play among Friends

Couldn't have said it better - so its now on the page heading!
