June 13/14: There will be no bridge games at our club on Wednesday, June 13 or Thursday, June 14 due to the Penticton regional tournament, the largest tournament in Canada. All of your directors will be in Penticton playing bridge. To avoid bridge withdrawal symptoms, come to Penticton for a few days.
June 20: There will be no bridge game at our club on Wednesday, June 20. We will be using the hall for the full-day bridge seminar with Haig Tchamitch about contested bidding and greater use of doubles.

Beginner Bridge Lessons:
Learn to play Bridge in two lessons, Wednesday June 27 & July 4, 10:00 am to noon. Cost: $10 per session. Click the "Beginner Bridge Lessons" box on the right hand side of your sceen for details.
Supervised Play - Wednesday mornings 10:00 - noon.
The Supervised Play series will start once again after the beginner lessons mentioned above. Each session will start with a 10-15 minute mini lesson plus handout on the topic of the day. Participants will then play 8-10 hands based on this theme. Each board will contain a “traveller” (piece of paper) that describes how the hand should have been bid, should have been played, opening lead ... whatever is relevant to the topic of the day. The moderator will mingle among the players to provide advice, answer questions, give more detailed explanations, etc. The cost is $10 per session. You do not need a partner. The tentative schedule is as follows:
July 11 - Bidding a major suit: Partner opens in a major suit: How should the bidding continue?
July 18 - Bidding a minor suit: Partner opens in a minor suit: How should the bidding continue?
July 25 - Bidding No Trump: Partner opens in NT: How should the bidding continue? (Stayman & transfers)
August 1 - 2 Over 1 game forcing.
