Linda’s Friendly Bridge Lessons

Linda is taking her lessons to Zoom. So far over 50 players have signed up to partcipate. The first lesson (Support Doubles) will take place Sunday, April 12 at 1:30. Yes, it’s Easter, but these are different times. Hopefully, observance of the religious holiday can take place on that day, as well.

If you are interested in getting an invitation to the meeting, contact Linda MacCleave. If the number becomes too large to handle, Linda can do the lesson a second time during the week, possibly Tuesday evening.

Linda’s lessons are listed here.

He would also be glad to answer your bridge questions about the lessons, about play in general, and about bridge ethics (with Mimi’s help), or any other general questions.
