If you need a partner for a game, please phone the club at 613-384-0888 and leave a voicemail with your name, the day you need a partner for and your phone number.  Our wonderful parntership people will get back to you when they have found you a partner.

Schedule of Lessons
  • Monday 10:00 am: Play with a coach.
    • Everyone is welcome to the Monday 10:00am group.  It is pay-as-play, $5 a session and run by Charlie Waddell 

      Charlie starts with a Q&A and a short lesson and tends to focus on playing rather than bidding.  Bidding often comes up in the Q&A, and Charlie will talk about any convention or bidding issue that the group requests.  

      After the lesson participants play boards, with hand records which allows them to compare what they did with what happened when the board was played.  Participants are free to ask questions during the auction or play.  This is the "Play with a Coach" part.
