New Learning Opportunities

We are happy to offer the following Classes and Workshops: 

  • Advanced Series with David Loeb - Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30  – You open 1♣, partner responds 1, you bid 1NT, what does partner do now to differentiate an invitational hand from a game forcing hand?  Regular new minor forcing (NMF) is not sufficient.  Come to this week's lesson with your partner to find a better way!     
  • Basic Bidding Class with Marsha Wicks - Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 am.  8 week series focusing on the basics of Standard American Bidding.  Marsha will focus on "Dummy Points" this week.  Your hand can really change in value when you know you will be dummy and have good trump support.  This material will repeat what was covered in lesson 7 of the Beginner class.
  • Polishing the Basics with Perry Poole – Friday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30.  There WILL be a FRIDAYWORKSHOP this week!  Perry is back from the Gatlinburg Regional and he will continue his series on Polishing the Basics.   His topic this week focuses on "Bidding Balanced Hands".         

The cost for all of the above is $10 per session. Each lesson concludes with supervised play applying the principles discussed. 

Check out our Classes and Workshops link for more details on these offerings.
