Learn & Play  

Every Thursday, 6:00 - 9:30 pm

Snelgrove Community Centre 

Good News!  Learn and Play will continue every Thursday until the end of June.  Our scheduling issues with the city have been resolved. Please continue to come out to hone your bridge knowledge, bidding  and play of the hands. 

Our first couple of weeks in March will look at Slam Bidding, the Gerber Convention, Roman Key Card Blackwood and Cue bidding.  If you need a refresher, this is the place to come!  

If you are a newer player looking for an opportunity to hone your skills in a non-threatening environment, then this is the place for you.  Cost is $10 pay as you go, which includes 45 minute lesson and 18 pre-designed boards that support the key points of the lesson.
