The Bonita Bridge Club will host a pro-am bridge tournament this Saturday, Feb. 26 at the Bonita Bay Country Club. The duplicate bridge game starts at 12:45 with a silent auction, followed by a wine and cheese reception.
The event is a fundraiser for the Bonita Springs Art Center so the $50 entry fee is tax deductible and benefits the Bonita Springs Art League.
Marietta Huggard, former manager of the Naples Bridge Center and former owner of the Bonita Bridge Club, will be the guest speaker. Call the Bonita Springs Center for the Arts at 495-8989 to make a reservation.
Two very prominent bridge teachers will be at the Bonita Bridge Club in March. Barbara Seagram from Toronto, Ontario, comes Thursday, March 10 and Friday, March 11 for a two-part series on defense vs. no trump contracts and defense vs. suit contracts. You can sign up for one or both events. Call 690-7919 to reserve a spot!
The Naples Bridge Centre’s Expert Guest Speaker Program has invited Dennis Dawson, Saturday morning, March 5, to speak to players who want to improve their play. Dawson stresses that players must learn to think at the table and watch what is played and what is discarded. Discards, Dawson says, are important to the game, and all players should learn how to pass valuable information to their partner. As a teacher Dawson is known for his logical explanations and “cards on the table” approach to learning.
Register at the Naples Bridge Center with a check for $40/$45 and enjoy a day of breakfast, lunch and the afternoon duplicate game.
