Learn Bridge in a Day?® is the perfect place to start. This course will be offered by Kathy Juarez at the Santa Rosa Bridge Gallery on Saturday, January 19, 2019, from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Here’s what the ACBL says about the LBIAD class: Move quickly along the initial learning curve. Participants should include true beginners, those returning to bridge after long absences and those wanting to “test the waters” before committing to formal classes. The concentrated, 4.5 hour course includes both class instruction and coached play.
