Brevard Duplicate General Information

Brevard Duplicate is a small, friendly club formed in March 2015, now in our third year.  Our club is located in Brevard, North Carolina--home of the white squirrel. Yes, you can sometimes see white squirrels in the parking lot.  Generally we host 4 to 6 tables and 6 to 8 in the summer months.  Brevard Duplicate holds its sessions in the French Broad Community Center at 281 E. French Broad Street.  This center belongs to the City of Brevard.  Parking at the Center is limited, so come early for the best spots.  There are coffee and snacks at the games.  Although small, the club welcomes all newcomers.  

 
Welcome to Brevard Duplicate Bridge
STEVEN DIVICO AND GAYLE COVEY'S CLASS ON JACOBY TRANSFERS
BREVARD DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUB
IS OFFERING
A COMPLIMENTARY CLASS
DATE: Friday September 29th
TIME: 9:30 - 11:30 A.M.
INSTRUCTOR: Steven DiVico & Gayle Covey
SUBJECT: The Jacoby Transfer
RANGE: Straightforward, geared to beginners and a good refresher for the more advanced
SUMMARY:
Teaching and reviewing Jacoby transfers in conjunction with Stayman. The focus is how the 1NT Responder accurately describes the various hand patterns involving the major suits - a hand with 1 five-card major, a hand with 4 spades and 5 hearts and hands with 5 hearts and 4 spades. The sequences are different depending on whether Responder has a bad hand, an invitational hand or a game-forcing hand. While these permutations exist, we make them clear.
Steve and Gayle are highly respected instructors and bridge players in our 171 Chapter. They are active in local events and have won many sectionals and regionals and have a national title to their credit. Their approach is open, friendly, to the point and contains very clear and understandable explanations/instructions ~ it is obvious that they love to teach and share with others. We are very fortunate to have them visit us and present a class so that we not only learn but have the opportunity to meet them. Feel free to ask questions after the session. It is desirable that we can develop a teaching relationship them whereby they share their knowledge and vast experience with us in our own home town in the not so distant future! They can offer any class we might be interested in learning.
