Ongoing Educational Programs

Beginning Lessons - Audrey Grant I
Thursday evenings, 6:30pm, started on September 18.
Teacher: John Edmundson.

Tuesday Mini Lessons 6:00pm - New EZ Blue Card
The ACBL has approved use of a new convention card, the EZ Blue Card. It is a simplified card, but not as stripped down as the SA Yellow Card. Each section of the card will be explained. Teacher: Keith Thompson

Intermediate Chat Bridge
Thursdays, 11:00-12:00, SIGN UP by Wednesday evenings, so we can plan for enough coaches. Like Chat Bridge you get to bid and play the hands open and you can ask questions. Each table has a coach, so the instruction is very hands-on. If you play in the 12:30 game right after the lesson is free, if you come only for the hour, it costs $5. Run by: Joseph Browan.

Intermediate Lessons - 2 over 1
Series of 15 lessons on 2 OVER 1. Wednesday evenings 5:30-6:30 before the open pair game. Lessons cost $5 per time, or you can pay $30 up front for the entire series!!! Began Aug 6.
Teacher: Tom Hammond


Chat Bridge $5 - Thursdays 12:30pm & Tuesday 6:30pm. Play bridge while being able to ask questions during the bidding and/or the play. Limited to those with 20 MP or fewer. Masterpoints are awarded. Come anytime, no partner necessary.
