Bridge Seminar on Defense

These days we all want to get smarter faster. Six or eight week classes are good, if you have that amount of time to commit.  If not, try a bridge seminar. These one day educational opportunities were really encouraged at the National Teacher Conference in Toronto this summer. MaryAnn is offering a four hour class, Dazzling Defense in a Day, on October 14, 2017. Students will learn the best opening leads, how and when to signal partner, and which of five types of defense to use, depending on the bidding, the contract, and your cards.

The seminar will be at Glovik Hall (where CR holds their tournaments). The four hour class will be followed up by three optional supervised play classes on Sunday afternoons. Those will be held at Country Inn and Suites on October 15, October 29, and November 5 from 3:15 to 4:45. The hands will be practice hands to reinforce what you learned in the seminar. You will be provided with handouts and hand records and analysis for all the sessions.

You may sign up with a partner or as a single. $30 each or $50 for two. Supervised play add on’s are free for students who enroll in the seminar. Snacks and coffee will be provided at the Saturday seminar. Sign up by September 12 by calling MaryAnn at 319 540 4206 or emailing
