The Friday morning lessons and games are intended for players who have completed beginning bridge lessons, are coming back to the game, or for those players that would like a refresher. Half-hour review lessons are given before each game. We start at 9:00 AM sharp. $10 card fee for a great game with wonderful people and good snacks!

In addition to our usual lessons, we also offer a Barometer Game on the last Friday of the month. A unique way of combining playing with education. After each round, the boards you just played are reviewed. Discussion includes bidding and what to lead. They are our most popular Friday morning game.

The schedule for April includes:

  • April 7: Preempts – Have a weak hand? What do you do with it? Find out how to bid and if you’re the partner, how to respond to weak bids.
  • April 14: Inverted Minors – A handy convention aimed at getting to the right contract when your side opens a minor.
    • Club Championship. EXTRA POINTS AWARDED!
  • April 21: Jacoby 2NT – My partner opened a major. I have an opening hand too and great support for partner. How to bid and potentially find your slam.
  • April 28: Losing Trick Count – Another tool to help you find the correct bid and game.

No partner needed. We guarantee you will play. This is a very fun and friendly group. The more you play, the more comfortable you will become with the bidding and the play of the hand. Contact Susan Bristol at or Trudi Hanscom at for more information.

Every 3rd Thursday The single best learning opportunity at SOCBC is through our Mentoring Sessions. The topic of the day is covered with a short lecture, then you play hands illustrating the topic just discussed. During the play, each table has an experienced player on hand to assist you as needed. Larry Cohen is the premier teacher of bridge today. He emphasizes that only a few conventions are absolutely necessary – LESS IS MORE! This year’s Mentoring Sessions will cover those essentials in the order of importance he assigned them:
  1. Negative Doubles
  2. Blackwood
  3. Stayman
  4. Jacoby Transfers
  5. 4th Suit Forcing
  6. Bidding Over Opponents’ 1NT Opening Bid
  7. Weak Jumps in Competition
  8. 2NT After Partner’s Weak 2 Bid
You may think you know these conventions, but it’s likely that you don’t know the full system – the all-important follow-up bids. Plan on joining us for all of these great sessions!
