Dear Member,

October was a lot of fun, and we enjoyed handing out Gold Points. Congratulations to Carl Coppolino and H. Farmer who each won 1 Gold Point in our Instant Match Point game. In October, we held 6 Gold Dust Swiss Teams, the maximum possible. There is still time to catch the last one on Tuesday October 30.

Sincerely,

Perfect for those who know nothing about bridge or those who played back in college, the course is designed to teach students the mechanics of bridge, an understanding of how scoring works and how to open the bidding, respond to opener and overcall.....all in just 3 1/2 hours.

Patty will be providing a sandwich buffet for those who have to come directly from work. So let your husbands, wives and friends know about this opportunity. Cost is $75.00 for adults and $40.00 for full-time students. The cost includes the Learn Bridge in A Day?™ student manual.
