|CBA Newcomer's Bridge
The CBA offers Saturday Supervised Play, catering to new bridge players under 100 MPs!
Time: 9:30 AM to 12 Noon.
Where: CBC - Cincinnati Bridge Center
Join us! Come by yourself or bring a partner. Our games are friendly. We offer advice during play from an experienced player - an added advantage for those just beginning. Supervised Play is for those familiar with bridge but still basically beginners, and provides a gateway to classes, duplicate bridge and further bridge learning.
Show up a few minutes early to sign in. We will match players of similar experience at the table. A 20-minute lecture starts at 9:30 AM (various bridge topics).
Cost: $3 per person ($1 Youth). This is not a sanctioned game - no master points awarded.
You don't have to be an ACBL member to join us on Saturday mornings. When you decide to join the ACBL, we will provide you with five (5) free admissions to Supervised Play along with two (2) free entries to a CBA duplicate game of your choice.
Come join us for a fun Saturday morning!
Contact Mike Purcell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Phyllis Bishop (email@example.com) if you need a partner, or have any questions about Saturday Supervised play.
