Youth Camp Canceled

Due to getting only 2 registered students, the Warner Robins youth bridge camp (June 17-20) is canceled. Hopefully in the future such camps will generate adequate attendance. The day-long bridge class in Macon scheduled for Friday, June 21, 9am-4pm, has zero students currently signed up. If this does not change in the next day or two, that class will also be canceled.

Youth Bridge Camps

“Bridge is a great way to learn from inferences. A lot of decisions in life are made by inferring from what you know,” says Warren Buffet. Buffet and Microsoft’s Bill Gates are avid bridge players and are regularly spotted at tournaments.

Bridge isn’t just a game for retirees. If you like chess, spades, mind games, or solving problems, bridge could be for you.

Bridge is a highly competitive, fun, and intellectual card game that people of all ages can enjoy. With over 8 million different hands that can be dealt, every deal is a new adventure! Studies have consistently shown that bridge helps in developing math, logic, and communication skills.

Come and learn the basics of bridge, the world’s greatest card game. Andre, the main instructor, is an ACBL-certified bridge teacher and manager of the WR bridge club who has represented the USA in international bridge competitions. All middle and high school students are welcome.

Session 1: June 17-20, 2013, 4-6pm at Robins Duplicate Bridge Club (151 Maple St., Warner Robins, GA)
Session 2: June 21, 2013, 9am-4pm at Macon Duplicate Bridge Club (1070 Southshore Place, Macon, GA). Lunch is included.
Cost: free

Spring Bridge Events

It's about time to for the next round of beginner classes to get going and to bring out the bridge players who don't yet play duplicate.

Thursday, April 25 we will have a mentoring/new faces game. Regular players pay regular price ($4) but new players are free. All regular players should bring a new player to play with. Ruth and Jerry may be able to help some of you find a partner, but we are depending on everyone to reach out to a friend or colleague or social bridge friend and introduce them to duplicate. You can even bring someone who you spent the length of dinner teaching bridge to - a week later is the next learn bridge in a day course.

Saturday, May 4, I am planning to teach another learn bridge in a day course for absolute beginners. Even people with a small amount of experience may find this course useful in refining the basics, especially if they haven't had an organized class before. The plan is for this course to go from 9:30-2:30 and I plan to order pizza for lunch around noon. Cost is $20.

Youth bridge camps are coming in the summer, too. Check back soon for that information.

Caddies for upcoming Regional tournament

We are in need of a couple more caddies for the Macon regional, to be held at the Macon Centreplex Feb 18-24. The weekend is mostly covered but we still need caddies for Tuesday through Friday Feb 19-22. Session times for caddies are 9:15am-12:45, 1:30pm-5pm, and 7:30-11pm and the pay is $30 per session. Ideally, we would like students and young people who are mobile and can easily fit through the sometimes small spaces between tables but given that this tournament falls on a regular school week, new bridge players may be the best candidates for the job. Contact Andre at aaasbury@gmail.com if you or a family member is interested in this.
