If you've been taking lessons from me, and haven't yet ventured into the
bridge club, this might be the time to give it a try.
Art at the Arcadia Bridge Center is starting a new series of newcomer
games on Tuesday evening, starting this week. The game starts at 7:15
p.m., but if you get there a little early, Art will have a one-topic
lesson at 7:00. (This week's topic is weak opening two-bids.)
The game is a real ACBL sanctioned bridge game, and the players will be
other newcomers to bridge like yourselves. Alongside the newcomer game
he also holds an "open" game, and I plan to be there this Tuesday
playing in the other room.
If you were in my class but didn't get a coupon for a free play at the
bridge club, let me know or tell Art, and we'll take care of it.
Meanwhile, if you're interested, don't forget to sign up for Bridge II
starting on Wednesday, April 10:
Hi everyone! Bridge II, "The Play of the Hand in the 21st Century," is
now available for registration through PCC Extension.
Here's the signup link on the PCC website: http://goo.gl/HXjdT
Class starts on Wednesday, April 10, at our same location at Arcadia
High School, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The course is $95 plus $15 for the book.
We'll skip class on April 17, then continue for the following seven
This class is for anyone who understands the basics of bridge and
bidding. Bridge I is not a prerequisite. While the class focuses on play
of the hand as declarer, we'll also add a few new bidding tools to help
you find the right contract.
The format will be familiar -- we have a book and special cards. We'll
discuss a new topic on play, with a little bidding and defense in each
class, followed by playing and discussing bridge hands.
I have tentative dates for Bridge III on Defense starting in June. I'll
send another note when I have more information.
Hope you can make it!
