Bring Home a Cure

As many of you know, our good friend Jean Jolin has a grandson Connor who has been stricken with a rare and to date, incurable form of cancer.  His name is Connor MacLea and April has been dubbed as a fundraising month to help find a cure for Connor.  Bridge Academy II wants to help in every way possible.  On Sunday, April 22nd, we will be holding a game here at the club with 2 sections - a sanctioned 499er game that will be upgraded (extra master points) and a non master point supervised play game.  Diane and I will be here and if there are any of you experienced players who would like to swing by to donate and or help the students....please do.  ALL proceeds from this event will go towards a cure for Connor.  Lunch will be provided at 12:30 with the games to start at 1pm.  Then from April 23rd through the 26th, we will run charity games with Connors fund being the benefiting local charity.  Please check out their website at www.BringHomeaCure.com for a list of activities or to make a donation.  THANK YOU for your support!

299ers

Welcome to Our Club

Bridge Academy II is dedicated to helping you learn and continually improve your game. Although bridge lessons are important, they are not the only thing necessary to improve.

  • Playing regularly will expose you to thousands of hands and situations.
  • Kibitzing the more experienced players provides a very valuable learning experience for Intermediate players.
  • Many websites have a new lesson and practice hand featured every day.
  • Thousands of bridge books are available on virtually every subject you can imagine.
  • Finally, sometimes playing in the OPEN game, as opposed to the restricted (299er or 749er game), will allow you to broaden your scope and see advanced bidding, declaring, and defending skills in action.  You may not score a high percentage that day, but you will score big in tips given to you by the advanced players.

Bridge Academy II has scheduled 3 games with a Restricted section.  Two are 299er games, which means no one with more than 299 master points (MP) will be playing in that section.  The third is a 749ergame, meaning no one with more than 749 master points will be allowed in that section.

  1. Wed    10:30 a.m.  Big game, lots of tables, Open section also
  2. Thu       6:30 p.m.  749er Game, mostly less than 300 MP players
  3. Sat       10:30 a.m.  Relaxed, good place to start
