EYC Bridge Registration starts now
It’s finally February! Those long winter nights will turn into long summer days before we know it.
Please take note of the summer 2020 bridge schedule and registration information for lessons, open play and couples bridge.
We are pleased to announce that we have secured a teacher to lead our Thursday morning lesson series! Our new teacher, Barbara Robinson, comes highly recommended, and will be assisted by her husband Dave.
Group Lessons for experienced players (not beginners) will be held on Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Lessons will be based on the Standard American system, and will utilize pre-dealt hands based on the lesson presented. The lessons will consist of a 5 week series, beginning July 2. The curriculum is designed to be most effective with regular attendance. We will not be able to accommodate a non-registered student “filling in” for an absent student.
The cost is $80.00, which includes the lessons and any teaching materials. Checks should be made payable to Barbara Robinson (not EYC)
To enroll, please download, complete and mail this LESSON REGISTRATION to Suzanne Lisle. We cannot take reservations via the web or phone. Enrollment priority will be based on the postmark date of the mailed check and form. If the class fills, we will maintain a wait list and you will be notified of your status.
Please contact Suzanne Lisle via email if you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org (please put EYC bridge on the subject line).
Since the lesson series does not begin until July, the format for Thursday mornings beginning June 11 will be open play/review. (same time, 9:30 – noon)
will be held on Monday afternoons beginning June 8th from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. Open play will also be held on Thursday mornings from 9:30 to noon, beginning August 6 (after the bridge lesson series has concluded).
Couples Bridge will be held on Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m., beginning June 9th, with an option of going out for dinner after play. You will play with the same partner for the evening. While registration is not necessary, we are asking you to let the Nelsons or the Littersts know if you are interested in playing on Tuesdays. They have volunteered again to coordinate this group’s communication. Donna Nelson’s email is email@example.com. Lois Litterest’s email is Loie7441@yahoo.com. You may also contact either couple in early June in Door County.
No advance registration is required for either of these open play times. Just come as often as you wish. (Reminder, you do need to be a member in good standing with dues paid to play).
