Handicapped Teams Join us for our November Handicapped Swiss Teams events on alternate Mondays, November 6 and November 20. Games start at 12 Noon. These have proven to be very popular – we had 15 teams at our last event! – so email or call the Club soon to register and reserve a table for your team. As before, we will be using duplicated boards, so hand records will be available.
Fall Bridge Lessons Continue! As the end of the year approaches, we have three ongoing classes for advancing and intermediate players:
1. Dennis Shaub is presenting Popular Conventions & Strong Hands (Bridge Basics 3) on six consecutive Thursdays from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM beginning November 9. The fee is $120 for the full series. Click here for the flyer and full details.
Dennis is also conducting a 4–Lesson Selected Topics in Bridge class on Tuesdays from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM beginning November 7. Topics: Doubles & Redoubles; How to Steal the Contract; 4th Suit Forcing; Sacrifice, Double, or Pass? No need to register; drop in on any session for $20. Click here for the flyer and full details.
Email Dennis at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions on either of these Lesson series.
2. Linda O'Malley is teaching an Advanced Beginner Series for those who have taken the first round of her beginner bridge lessons. Topics include play of hand tips as well as conventions such as Stayman, Jacoby Transfers, the Takeout Double, and the strong Two Club Opener. The 6–Lesson series runs on Wednesdays from 9:30–11:30 AM, November 8 to December 20 and costs $120 (no class on November 22).

Points and Pointers! Join us on Wednesdays for Points and Pointers, a real duplicate game designed for players just beginning to enjoy our wonderful game. The game is limited to players with 0–20 ACBL Masterpoints. Each table will play the same boards at the same time, and the leader of the session will discuss each board immediately after it is played. The game and lesson are $15 and will run from 12 Noon to 3 PM. Please tell your friends about this new game – we are averaging 4–5 tables per session, so there is plenty of room to grow this popular game! Register by emailing the Club at email@example.com or call 610–232–2250. You can also register in person at the Director's desk.

Free Mini–Lessons Our popular Friday and Saturday Mini–Lessons are regular weekly events. Rex Saffer presents selected topics in offensive and competitive bidding, declarer play, and defensive principles from 9:30–10:00 AM before the Friday Come Out and Play session and again before the Saturday 0–500 Limited game. The conversations will focus on fundamentals and are directed toward advancing and intermediate players.
Rex maintains an online repository of the handouts distributed at each lesson. Click here to view or download these documents.
Come Out And Play Just getting started with bridge? Now there are TWO opportunities to learn as you play! Join us on Friday and Saturday mornings from 10–11:30 am for a relaxed session of bridge. There will be no scoring, no masterpoints, and no pressure! – for only $10 per person. Come on out and drop in, no commitment or advance registration needed, and singles are welcome! Mentors will be available to answer any questions that may arise. This is a fun way to improve your bidding and play while meeting other advancing players.
