New Education Offering: Open Supervised Play (OSP)

Okay, so you've taken the BB series of classes, done some reading, and maybe even tested yourself in a few outings, but you'd really like some more guidance. Open Supervised Play (OSP) is tailored for your needs. Each Monday from 7-9PM a short lecture will open the session followed by actual play of 8-10 hands with the cards "rigged" to bring up the situation that had just been discussed. Coaches will be available to respond to your questions and help you find the correct line of bidding and play of the hand. Since this is a class (no Director, no Master Points) an open discussion during play is possible. The objective is to review a basic fundamental skill you may have previously been taught, and reinforce the learning experience by actual supervised play. The target audience is beginner and novice players. Fee is $7 for Club members and $10 for non-members. Come with a partner or come alone, but give it a try.  We think you'll be delighted!
