FOR BEGINNERS AND NEWER PLAYERS
If you are an absolute beginner, have played a little but would like to start over “from scratch”, or just need a tune-up on various points, Dawn Lee will be teaching classes starting in September, 2019.
- *Beginner 1, instructor: Dawn Lee - Saturday morning, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS or people who want to start over from scratch. New Class starts on January 18th.

- *Beginner 2, instructor: Dawn Lee - Sunday morning, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. A "continuing education" series on a wide variety of bidding and play topics.
*The cost is $15 per lesson. These are playing lessons, so you will practice what you learn.
We also have supervised play sessions. You can come on your own or with a partner or foursome and play hands with other new players in a non-competitive environment. With the help of volunteers who can give you real-time advice, it's your opportunity to practice and see practical examples of what you've learned. The cost per session is $12. This is held on Saturdays from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
