Tom Hunter of Come Play Bridge is coming to the DCA as the new duplicate bridge director.

Our Monday game will now be a drop-in play, $13 open game, without a DCA membership requirement, to help players obtain more master points. Tom will be using hands from The Common Game, so hand records will be available.

Games will be stratified, and Tom will also be available both before and after the game for questions and discussion. This challenging game is held in the Garden Wing every Monday, starting from September 11, at 12:30pm from September until May.

The Darien Community Association (DCA) is also offering “Intro to 2 Over 1” and Bridge 5 classes starting in September.

Intro to 2 Over 1 Bridge Class: In this class, instructor Joan Bergen will focus on the 2/1 bidding system, with an emphasis on play of the hand.

Prior to the first class, participants must purchase the book: 2 over 1 Game Force by Audrey Grant and Eric Rodwell. All of our bridge classes follow the same format.

Each class begins with an oral lesson followed by play of the hand. Students should plan on bringing a three ring binder to the first class, as all classes are taught via handouts.

Class dates: Seven Tuesdays: September 12, 19, 26 and October 3, 10, 24, 31 at 9:30am – 11:30am Class fee: DCA members $175/ public $210 Prepayment is required by noon on Friday, Sept. 8.
