Bridge Basics I
Thursdays at 9AM
Students will learn to play bridge, the best game ever invented! You will begin playing with the very first week as we introduce the concepts of bidding and taking tricks. (If you play – or played -- a little bit, this is still the best class to begin with. Give yourself strong fundamentals!) Play hands every week! Instructor: Jack Brawner
Bridge Basics II
Saturdays at 9:15AM beginning 1/13 (ten weeks)
A continuation of Bridge Basics I, students will learn the basic conventions, and get involved in the concepts of competitive bidding. Play hands every week. Instructor: Tony Cipolla.
Tuesdays at 4:45 (after the game)
This class is designed for the person who played bridge (ahem!) years ago! The game has evolved, and this is the class that will bring you up to speed. In addition to learning modern bidding and play techniques, our class will also help you get ready to play and compete as soon as possible by helping you with your skills. Play hands every week! Instructor (and course designer): Jackie Altschuler
