International Volunteers Day
International Volunteers Day

International Volunteers Day is on Tuesday 5 December 2023.

On behalf of the MBC Management Committee and all MBC members,

we say a huge

to all our volunteers who make our Bridge Club such a success and a joy for all players.

There are so many jobs done by volunteers who willingly give their time to support our club.

It would be impossible to name everyone without missing a name, so please take this as a personal thankyou.

During this week, please make an effort to thank those who you know are giving their time willingly to make every bridge session run smoothly.

Membership Fees 2024 Due
Membership Fees 2024 Due

Membership fees of $30 for 2024 are NOW DUE.
(Life Members Exempt)
Preferred Payment is Direct Deposit.
REF: Name and MFees

If you pay cash at the clubhouse, pleae make sure you are issued with a written receipt.

As recorded in the October and November Minutes, the NSWBA Affiliation Fee and the ABF Capitation Fee have both been inceased recently, and $30 does not cover these costs.

Please be aware that the annual fee will be increased for 2025. Under our current constitution, the amount can only be decided at an Annual General Meeting.

As the main increase was not made known to clubs until after our 2023 AGM, we were unable to increase the fee for 2024.
