The Darien Community Association (DCA) is offering Bridge 3 classes starting in January. Bridge 3 will pick up where Bridge 2 left off starting with a review of basics.
The new topics will include Stayman and Jacoby Transfers after NT openings. Also covered will be basic defense and play of the hand.

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.
Joan Bergen will be the instructor. Joan Bergen is a longtime local resident and Bridge Life Master who, after studying bridge intently for eight years, is driven to teach others.
Students will benefit from her enthusiasm and love for the game that she describes as both a great way to meet people, and a wonderful activity to keep the mind sharp.
Bridge 3 will be held on six Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 8, 15, 22 (not Jan. 29) and Feb. 5, 12, 19.
Course fees are $210, or $180 for DCA members. Prepayment required by noon on Friday, Jan. 4. Minimum and maximum enrollment applies.
Classes are held at the DCA at 274 Middlesex Road in Darien.
