Thursday March 21 at 9:30 with Gary

Why do we record the Opening Lead in our Bridgemates and display it on our Website Results page? Because the Opening Lead often makes or breaks the Defense! Learn how to get off to the right start when you are on lead in our March mentoring session.

Mentoring is the best place to learn with experienced players at each table as you practice the lesson material. Please register in advance: jmatlaf@gmail.com

$15 – Then plan to stay for the afternoon for just $5


DOUBLES   with Gary Waldron

Wednesdays: February 21, 28, March 6, 13 at 9:30 am

Gary could easily teach more than a dozen lessons on doubles because there are so many applications and variations. If your double card is not worn and frayed you are not using it enough and you need this series.

Register with Gary:  lagunajhawk@icloud.com

$15 each or $50 in advance for the full 4 week series
