2018 Winter Classes

Defense Class

Jean Denson and Sherry McColgin will offer a Defense Class beginning Wednesday, January 10 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. for approximately 10 weeks.  Although the class will be based heavily on ACBL Defense in the 21st Century, other resources will be used.  All lessons will be taught “hands-on” with “cards on the table.”  Come learn how to make sure you and your partner get all the tricks you deserve when the opponents are playing the hand.  Don’t let them have that extra trick! If you don’t have a book, books may be purchased at the club for $20.  Lessons are $15 per week attended.  However, husbands and wives who both attend will be provided a $5 discount.  If you wish to sign-up, email Jean Denson at jdenson123@bellsouth.net by December 22.  For those who had signed up earlier when the class had originally been planned in the fall, please sign up again if you are able to take the class.  Questions may also be emailed to Jean at the same address.
