Bridge Continues at EYC
The summer series of bridge lessons has completed, but bridge will continue on Thursday mornings from now until the Club closes at the end of September. All are welcome to attend on Thursdays, from 9:30 until Noon, whether you were in the lesson series or not. The Thursday format uses pre-dealt hands with lesson concepts reviewed, or if you prefer, you may group in fours and play in the usual Monday afternoon “open play” format.
Monday open play bridge continues from 1:00 until 3:30 with the same format of rotating partners every four hands.
The popular Tuesday couples group continues, with about 20 people playing each Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. Bring a partner and plan to join the group for dinner after (optional, but extra fun continues!).
Attention Flying Scot racers of all skill levels: Join us on Saturday, August 15 for an on-the-water coaching session, where we will pair skippers and crew of different skill levels to race around a W/L course in Eagle Harbor. It is a chance to get pointers or to give back and help coach others. You do not need to come with skipper, crew or boat, just your life jacket and personal gear. We would love to get more experienced sailors to join us and help give pointers to those with less experience. First warning signal at 10:00 AM. Also seeking a volunteer for safety boat. Any questions, please contact Jennifer Ikeda Faugust at email@example.com
