SUPERVISED PLAY

            Supervised Play

 

       Thursday mornings  10:00 – 12:00

Monday Evenings - Sept. 12, 19, 26 - 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Supervised play is a program designed to practice what you already know and continue to learn and grow in your game.  Each session begins with a fifteen minute mini lesson – and then each table plays hands at their own pace.   You can ask question at any time, about bidding, play of the hand, defending, bridge etiquette etc.

Come alone, come with a favorite partner or with your regular table of four.   If you arrive alone, we do our best to match up partners with similar skill levels.

Join us for this fun, relaxed program.  The cost is $10 per player.

Any questions?   Contact Kristi Menees     kristimenees@mac.com
