2020 FALL LESSONS ON ZOOM

2020 FALL LESSONS ON ZOOM

WITH JOSÉE HAMMILL

I am pleased to offer some courses this Fall using ZOOM and BBO as the teaching platform.

BASIC BEGINNERS BRIDGE SERIES

Wednesdays 4 pm to 6 pm (EST) beginning on September 9th for 8 weeks

During these 8 weeks you will be introduced to the basic elements of the game of bridge: how to take tricks, how to work with a partner, how to open the bidding in a suit and in No Trump, how to respond and more on bidding. Play of the hand concepts will also be introduced each week. Handouts of hands to input on BBO with “how to” will be provided each week to allow you to practice what you have learned.

$240 CDN ($185 USD) . Price includes taxes and Barbara Seagram Basic Bridge textbook.

INTERMEDIATE I BRIDGE SERIES

Tuesdays 4 to 6 pm (EST) beginning on September 8th for 7 weeks.

For those who feel rusty and need a refresher and for those moving up from Basic lessons. Handouts of hands to practice declarer play concepts that can be uploaded on BBO will be provided each week.

$210 CDN ($162USD). Price includes taxes and Barbara Seagram Intermediate I textbook.

 

LEARN TO PLAY TWO OVER ONE 

 Two day course  Monday September 21 and  Tuesday September 22 -  9:30 to 11:30 am (EST) 

 

Learn the system that most of North America now plays. It makes it much easier to get to a better contract, easier to find slams on fewer values and easier to know when to stop in a part score.   Learn the forcing No Trump bid.  

$65 CDN ($50 USD) includes taxes and Barbara Seagram 2/1 textbook.

As you know I donated your contributions to my Zoom lessons in June to two charities dear my heart. Armour Heights Presbyterian Church (where we rent space to teach our lessons)  and ARISE which is associated with the Presbyterian Church and whose mission is to help individuals who have been exposed to sex trafficking to reclaim their lives. In June you  donated $1100 from contributions that came to me which I then transferred to them. This does not include the contributions that many of you made directly to the two charities. Please take a moment to view this short YouTube video ( https://youtu.be/ffUyopxFzkw) or click on the heading above, so you can see how much your contributions are appreciated!  

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU FOR THIS. 

If you still wish to donate directly, it is not too late, here are the direct links. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $25 or more.
