Intermediate Bridge Class Topics & Schedule

The Intermediate bridge class will begin this season with an introduction to the Two Over One (2/1) bidding system.  The class will be six weeks in length (each Wednesday at 1:00 pm).  The class is roughly based on Paul Thurston's book, "25 Steps to Learning 2/1."  It is strongly suggested the participants obtain a copy of the book as a reference.  Handout materials will be supplied at the start of each weekly class session.
