Seminars and Special Games



CLASSES WITH JOSÉE ON ZOOM

It was so rewarding to offer so many diffierent opportunities for all levels of players in the rank beginners to the advanced Intermediate group in my Spring series.

A little break this summer is now in order however I am still always working and preparing already for the fall.

Keep checking Josée's website, https://www.bridgewebs.com/josees for future updates on games for novice players and course packages to be purchases.

Contact Josée preferably by email at mjhammill@rogers.com or by phone at 416-300-9140.

NOVICE BRIDGE PLAYERS:

If you have 0-20 master points, OR know someone new to the game, note that Josee and Lee are now running games for new players:
Wednesdays 10:00 am, Wednesdays 7:15 pm, Saturdays 12:15 pm EASTERN TIME. Try these NEWPLICATE games!

GAMES FOR NEW PLAYERS WITH 0-20 MASTER POINTS: $5.00 BBO

LOTS of fun and a great opportunity to play in a TOTALLY non threatening environment.

If you are new to these games, first contact Josee at mjhammill@rogers.com for all details. We need to do this so Lee can get your name into the system so you can sign in easily.

This is an amazing opportunity. Do try this!


AND...Another wonderful opportunity!

Doug Cowan will be doing some private coaching

  • Coaching sessions will be 1 to 1-1/2 hours in length using regular bridge hands on BBO.
  • A session will consist of a group of 4 players and up to 4 kibitzers (watching only). Focus will be on playing as many hands as reasonably possible.
  • Focus will be on the fundamentals of bridge as taught in Josée’s Bridge Basics and Intermediate I courses. We will not use any fancy conventions and will focus strictly on bridge fundamentals.

Price is $20 per person per hour for players. $10 for kibitzers.

SUPERVISED DUPLICATE GAMES

Our Tuesday evening Newcomer Games have been cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19 concerns.
Tuesday morning games are now over.

We realize that the word Duplicate can be pretty scary sounding for many of you. Often newer players unfamiliar with the term think it means a whole different kind of bridge. We also recognize that it can be pretty intimidating to walk into a bridge club where everyone else seems to know what they are doing, and it feels like you are the only one who doesn't! The Barbara Seagram School of Bridge at Armour Heights Presbyterian Church, 105 Wilson Avenue, is pleased to introduce some opportunities for you to come and play duplicate in a super relaxed environment. If you are already an experienced Duplicate Player, please tell your friends who are only playing social/kitchen/party bridge. Do tell them what a wonderful chance they have to learn. Unlimited help available!
