Special Notice for D23 Bridge Clubs

Learn Bridge in A Day?®

District 23 has purchased a license allowing us to give Learn Bridge in a Day? programs throughout the district and will allow units and clubs in the District to use the license at the charge of $20 per program.

The volunteer bridge teachers at the Long Beach Bridge Center have purchased most of the items you need to run a Learn Bridge in a Day program at your bridge club or unit and can supply a teacher to run the program at a nominal charge.  They can also guide you in planning and advertising the program.

This program has been successful throughout the county in bringing in new duplicate bridge players when combined with beginning bridge lessons and playing opportunities. In Long Beach, we had 40 new players attend the program and about half of them signed up for beginning bridge classes.

The Long Beach Bridge Center will be holding another program on July 10, 2016, from 9:45 am to 2:45 pm, lunch included, if you wish to view a presentation.

For more information on using the license or if you plan on attending the Long Beach program contact Sharon Biederman 714 624-3455 or akiba1708@yahoo.com.
