HELLO BRIDGEMATES!


We have some excellent educational opportunities coming up this fall!  What does this mean for you?  This means two things for you:

1) You can help us spread the word about our beginning classes!  Do you know someone who might be interested in learning bridge?  Do you know someone who used to play and wants a refresher?  If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then please let them know about the opportunities to learn the game we all love that are listed below!  One way to help is spread the word is to like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/heartofthevalleybridgecenter/)
.  For those of you who already follow the club on Facebook, feel free to share our posts about classes to help spread the word!  We will be offering:

    A) the one-day "Learn Bridge in a Day" class on August 27 (see the attached flyer).  This is a great format for someone who wants to try out the game or someone who used to play and would like a refresher!  If you know someone who is interested, please pass along this info.  Special thank-you to Allison Walkingshaw for putting together our amazing flyer for this class!

    B) the 8-week Bridge Basics 1 course starting in mid-September (see below for details).  We will be offering both a day and a night class.  This is a great option for someone who has never played before and wants to learn!

2) You can take a class!  Mary Vance will be offering two sessions of the Doubles Class this fall starting the week of Sept 26th.  This class is designed for folks with some bridge experience.  Check out the details below for registration instructions!

Stay cool and enjoy the summer!  See you at the table!
