In lieu of Anne Hughes "Convention Card" class, we are offering a "Bid and Play" session with Anne Hughes as supervisor. This is a pilot course and if successful, the Education Committee plans on introducing the session on a regular basis throughout the year. The entire evening will cover bidding situations from the Beginners Classes offered Fall of 2018. Anne will prepare boards and be there to guide participants in bidding, defense, and play of the hand. Cost is $10 per class; pay as you go. Everyone is welcome! Register on line or through Judy Crewe at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep your interest in Bridge alive through supervised play with Janet Hannaford (Tuesdays: 9:30-11:30 am). Suitable for all learners, this course gives participants an opportunity to play hands in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. A mini lesson is followed by a series of 8-12 boards for play. The teacher is available for questions and hints during each board. We will then discuss bidding, defense, and play. If you wish to gain confidence and consolidate your bridge skills, this is the course for you. Registration is online. Pay as you go. For assistance registering, please email Judy at email@example.com
