Fast Forward to Bridge – We have Lift-off!

FAST FORWARD TO  BRIDGE COURSES    Our  Fast Forward to Bridge courses have now started! 

FAST FORWARD TO BRIDGE in South Somerset

This was the first venture of this kind in Somerset and was organized by 3 local bridge clubs (Castle Cary, Sherborne, Yeovil). It is a concentrated course for beginners and learners and was held over the weekend of May 18th-20th in the hall of the Sparkford Inn.
The course was taught by Caroline Macpherson supported by Barry, Meg and Ray from the bridge clubs. The course content was a mixture of teaching and supervised play interspersed by coffee breaks, lunch and dinner so that a very good social atmosphere prevailed.
The first session on the Friday evening was for beginners and “rusty” bridge players joined in on the Saturday. In the final session on the Sunday afternoon six club members joined the attendees for an enjoyable mini tournament during which the students were introduced to bridgemate scoring.
Sixteen people attended and these will all attend a series of followup lessons, at the end of which we expect several will join clubs.
Five of the students went to Castle Cary Bridge club on the following Thursday They played separately (supervised by Meg) to the main competition but they were made welcome by the members and it was a very successful evening. Some are going  to a club night at Sherborne.
All attendees and teaching staff regard the project as a great success.

You can see a photo here.

 

The next course :

September 15th – 16th 2018

A two day course at Victoria Fields Sports and Social Club, Street, followed by a series of ten further lessons on Wednesday evenings.

Cost will be £40 for the weekend.

Email Jean Howard howardjeanm@gmail.com to register.

 

There are two further courses planned for September in conjunction with Pawlett Bridge Club and Weston Bridge Club. More to follow soon.
