Beginner Lessons

Two Over One Review

On Wednesday February 1 and Wednesday February 8 George Welsh will teach a two-part review of the basics of the Two Over One Game Forcing bidding system.  The classes will be held from 10:30 to 12:30.

The sessions will be valuable to newer players and those who want to improve their understanding of the system's logic and its various bids.  

Update on Face to Face Policy

The Sedona Bridge Club Board of Directors has unanimously approved rescinding the current Face to Face (FtF) policy and adopting the ACBL Covid Protocols, effective December 2022.  Going forward, any revisions to the ACBL Covid Protocols will automatically be reflected in the Club Policy as well. Effective immediately, each Director will be specified as the Event Safety Coordinator. Pat McCreary, and each Director will assume these responsibilities, which include reviewing proof of vaccinations, providing masks upon request, and providing hand sanitizer.  Booster vaccinations are not currently required in the ACBL Covid Protocols.

Please note, if any player is feeling symptoms of Covid or testing positive for Covid, they should not play until those symptoms have resolved.  If you have been exposed please contact a Board member so that an informational email can be sent to all members.
