New Learning Opportunities

If you have taken the beginning class and want to increase your knowledge and skill, come to Perry's Friday morning class which builds on and extends the beginning lessons.

  • Polishing the Basics with Perry Poole – Friday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30. Perry will conclude his series on Polishing the Basics.   The final topic is “CLOSE OUT BIDS”. Our goal in this lesson is to find an easy way to differentiate game bids that are closeout from game bids that allow partner to carry on to slam.  The cost is $10 per session.  Each lesson concludes with supervised play applying the principles discussed.
  • Review of Laws / Director’s Course – Wednesday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30.   Glen Martin leads a workshop for those interested in directing games or who just want to understand the Laws of Duplicate Bridge better.  There is no fee for the sessions but donations for snacks and rent are always welcome.  Expect there to be assignments and lots of reading required so commit yourself to giving this your all.

Here are the classes we have planned for the rest of the year - please mark your calendars: (Morning classes are from 9:30 to 11:30 am; evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm)
