|CBA Newcomer's Bridge
The CBA offers Saturday Supervised Play for new bridge players under 100 MPs!
Time: 9:30 AM to 12 Noon.
Where: CBC - Cincinnati Bridge Center 2860 Cooper Rd. Cincinnati OH 45241
Join us! Come by yourself or bring a partner. Our games are friendly. We offer advice during play from an experienced player - an added advantage if you're just beginning. Supervised Play is for those familiar with bridge but still basically beginners, and provides a gateway to classes, duplicate bridge and further bridge learning.
Show up a few minutes early to sign in. We will match players of similar experience at the table. A 20-minute lecture starts at 9:30 AM (various bridge topics).
Cost: $3 per person ($1 Youth). This is not a sanctioned game - no master points awarded. Come join us for a fun Saturday morning!
Contact Mike Purcell ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you have any questions about Saturday Supervised play.
