Bridge Games & Lessons
Fall is a great time to play golf, tennis, bike or do any of the many other Belfair opportunities for physical exercise. Let's not forget the ole noggin though and exercise it as well with games like Bridge! The good news is that there are lots of ways to take advantage of this fun and mentally stimulating game in Belfair especially now that we have the Old Tabby room where men and women have access. If you click on the Calendar tab to the left of Home screen on this site, you'll see a schedule of all of the bridge games and lessons. Here is summary.

Mixed Games and Lessons for Men and Women Together
Mixed Duplicate Sanctioned Games
ACBL Sanctioned Duplicate Bridge is on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 6:30 in the Old Tabby room. Master points are awarded and the cost is $3 per person. Contact Ted or Betty Cooley at 843-757-8597. As this game grows, we will likely create two sections of A level players and B level players. If you don't care about master points, that's OK. Just come and enjoy the game.
Mixed Duplicate Games with occasional short topical discussions prior to the game
These sessions are intended for all levels of bridge players (beginner to advanced), and will be conducted on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the Old Tabby room at 6:30. The short 20 to 30 minute topics will include convention reviews, defense tactics etc. and will be conducted prior to a duplicate game. We have several outstanding bridge players in our community who will assist with these topics or act as mentors. Contact Tony Schlegel at 843-815-3011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mixed Beginner Lessons - "Learn to Play Bridge Workshop"
A eight-part series of beginner bridge classes for men and women based on ACBL’s recommended lessons, is conducted on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 4:00 PM in the Old Tabby Room. No prior knowledge of bridge is necessary to attend these classes. Contact Tony Schlegel at 843-815-3011 or email@example.com. We will be using the book “Bidding in the 21st Century”. We look forward to anyone who would to join us. We also have table mentors to assist as needed.
