Mentors Needed

The future of our club depends on attracting and retaining new members. We have a rather long list of mentees awaiting mentors. All that is expected of a mentor is to commit to play with a mentor in six games and spend a little time after the game going over the hands of interest. ..........

with Dr. Bob 
1:00 pm In-Person Intermediate Class ($10)
 

For beginners and players returning to bridge after a layoff, Beginner lessons are held on Saturdays at 10:00. These are FREE!

For graduates of the beginner lessons and others who know the basics of duplicate bridge, we offer Intermediate classes on Saturdays at 1:00 pm. ($10)

On Wednesdays, there is a mini-lesson at 9:00, followed by a game for those with fewer than 50 master points. ($10)

Jack Brawner runs a popular Play and Learn class on Thursdays at 12:30 pm. ($10)

This is recommended not only for newer players but for ANY non-expert!
We play a few random hands- one at a time, with each table playing the same hand- and Jack will lead a discussion at the conclusion of each hand. Bidding, play, defense- we never know what will come up!
We will start with a mini-lesson and finish around 3 pm. No, you do not need a partner! 

Jack Brawner offers classes on Mondays at 9:30 am at $20 per seminar.

 Monday, February 19. The topic is  on Balancing: Add 2-5% to your score!"

 

Dr Bob (Vollbracht) starts our newest class series, which begins Friday, February 2, at 10:00 am

and covers advanced bidding, declaring, and defending topics. ($20)

Merry Schainblatt's hugely popular online classes continue.

Her lecture classes are free, while the participatory ones cost $85 for 12 lessons. Check out her offerings at stpetebridge.com
