catch the premiere <https://watch.showandtell.film/watch/acbl-free>.
The movie will continue to be available after October 1st as a fund

ACBL Intro to Bridge
The ACBL has developed a beginning bridge program to introduce new
players to the game. The course was developed with Hall of Fame teacher
and Grand Life Master Patty Tucker from Atlanta.
The one thing missing from the new program was a course schedule
friendly to West Coast students.
I've been drafted to teach the course on *Wednesday evenings at 6:30
p.m.* starting October 6.
If you have friends who've thought about learning to play our fabulous
game, let them know about the program! Here's a link with all the
information <https://acbl.org/portfolio/intro-to-bridge/> and how to
register for the course.

I'm working with the team as Coach Mojo, and hoping to get started with
my own group this October. This might be my most challenging teaching
engagement so far!
If you know a kid who might want to give bridge a try, here's the link
and a registration form. This is for kids in grade 4-12, and it's a
20-week free online program.

Since teaming up with Paula Olivares, our virtual bridge club continues
to offer great games on Bridge Base Online (BBO). Paula has been

the last quarter of 2021.
For newer players, there's theAll Western 99er Nite Club
(PDF) with games Monday through Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Pacific time.
These quick 12 board games are followed by a Zoom meeting to go over
hands with great teachers from up and down the West Coast.
I'll be jumping in to direct and run the postmortem on occasional
