Intermediate Bridge Class at Bachman Community Center

Signal Mountain Lion's Club

An intermediate level bridge class will be offered at Bachman Community Center, 2815 Anderson Pike, beginning on Monday, February 26th. The classes will be conducted every Monday evening from 7:00 to 9:00pm for 10 weeks. The class will include one hour of instruction followed by one hour of play. The cost of the class will be $5 per session. This is a fund-raising activity for Bachman, so the students are making a contribution to Bachman, as well as learning to play bridge.

The course will be taught by Mel Tryon, who has over 20 years playing experience. He has been teaching both Beginner and Intermediate level classes at Bachman since 2003, rotating the classes to meet the interests of the bridge players in the community. His most recent Beginner’s class, which ended in November, had 28 students. Mel hopes many of those players will be interested in continuing to improve their bridge knowledge.

The course will use Shirley Silverman’s student text, the best-selling bridge teaching series in the last 25 years. Each student will receive their own text, which will help them improve their bridge skills for years to come. The course includes: a review of the fundamentals of bidding, strengthens bidding and play approaches, and introduces some essential material for continued improvement of your game.

Like the beginner class, “this will be a challenging but fun experience” says Mel, “with an emphasis upon making the game more enjoyable.” It is designed for people who know how to play bridge but are interested in improving their skills. The class builds upon the social bridge players’ basic understanding of the game. It will increase their enjoyment of the game by improving both their communication and card playing technique. It will be especially helpful to people who have been playing bridge but have never taken a formal bridge class.

The minimum enrollment to conduct the class will be three tables. Please call Nancy Urban at the Community Center, , to enroll before February 20th.
