Class Meeting Times:

Classes will meet on Tuesdays from January 12 

through February 23.

 

Morning Session:  10:00am - 11:30am

Evening Session :    7:00pm -   8:30pm

Participants choose one consistent time to attend each week.

Class 1 is an important introduction to the entire course.

                 Our first class is

                      *  a Meet and Greet,

                      *  an introduction to the online software, and

                      *  your first Bridge lesson where you will be playing Bridge

                          by the end of the class.

We have a lot of information to cover in Class 1, and we want to give more personalized attention to students to get them started successfully.

Therefore, we are holding multiple sessions for Class 1.

 

When you enroll in the course, you will choose the day/time

for your Class 1 session. 

It's possible it will not be your usual Tuesday meeting time.

If this is a problem, please contact us.   

We will try to work something out.

Classes 2 - 7 will be held at your regular class time on Tuesdays.

 

Practice and Play

In addition to your Tuesday Classes, we also have an optional

Practice and Play session on Saturdays from 12:30pm - 1:30pm.

These practice sessions on Saturdays allow you to play more hands

on week's topic. 

There is a brief 5-minute review, and then you play - play - play!

Once Enrolled in the Course, players will receive their Zoom links and

Meagan will then lead players into the online playing area
