Next Chance to Learn Bridge Basics in October

 

Cecelia Ray is offering Bridge Basics I: An Introduction. This is a proven entry course that will give each student a good foundation for the game. Cecelia's classes are smaller, personalized that typically last no more than four weeks. The play is the thing and you will get plenty of practice planning and playing a hand. After this class you will have the tools to enter a social game or a novice duplicate game.

 

Who is the class designed for?

The class is designed for players 

  • who are brand new to bridge,

  • who want to re-enter the game (remember college?), and

  • who would like a structured review to get your game dusted off.

 

Class Structure

BBI will meet once a week for 4 weeks. The class provides an introduction to all three parts of the game: 

  • Play of the Hand - analyzing your and your partner’s hand to see where tricks can be made and what techniques to use.

  • Bidding - communicating with your partner through bidding to reach the best contract.

  • Defense - communicating with your partner through cards played so your side can take your share of tricks.

 

Four sessions:

Session 1: The Basics

Session 2: Notrump Opening Bids and Responses

Session 3: Major Suit Opening Bids and Responses

Session 4: Minor Suit Opening Bids and Responses

 

Dates & Location

Tuesdays, 1:00 pm - 3:15 pm, starting October 24th and ending on November 14th. 

Classes will be held at Fellowship Presbyterian Church, 2005 New Garden Rd. in Greensboro. 

 

Registration

The registration fee is $100 for all four sessions and class size is limited to 16 students. An accompanying book is highly recommended and can be purchased at a discount from the instructor. 

 

Please register in advance by emailing Judy Hellen at Judy@LearnBridgeGSO.com or call/text

336-558-3613.

We look forward to seeing you in class!!
