TO ALL MY STUDENTS - WHERE DO CLASSES STAND?
First and foremost I hope you are well and safe. As you are aware the coronavirus has had a major effect on most aspects of life in the United States. Unfortunately, Bridge Classes are no different! Bridge clubs are closed. Churches are closed. Country clubs are closed. We were all asked to Shelter in Place for 14 days. I was delaying an email until I had a better feel for whether it would be just a month or two months. As of yesterday, the request for social distancing was extended until the end of April. Some feel that we may be looking anywhere from three to six months before things normalize.
Last week I began working with my technical aides to create a way to deliver lessons online through a combination of live lectures and topical lesson hands available on-line. I will also be offering a set of on-line topical video workshops. I hope to have varied options available for you, within our new ‘normal’, to continue to learn by the first of next week. Feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns. I hope to see you soon. Patty

Learn how to play bridge with Patty Tucker
Patty teaches the game of bridge and its conventions in a logical way. When you finish her class, you’ll understand the “why” behind each bridge lesson. Every class begins with a lesson; then several practice hands are played duplicate style; with groups of four students bidding and playing the hands to reinforce the concepts Patty presented that day.
One big benefit of learning and playing bridge is that the game exercises your brain. Besides being fun, you’ll see playing bridge helps with your memory, plus it helps in developing new planning, and strategy skills. We find bridge players see these benefits translate well in life!
