Bridge Club boot­camp

Kapi-Mana News - - EDUCATION -

Fancy a bit of a chal­lenge?

Kapi-mana Bridge Club will be run­ning their an­nual se­ries of be­gin­ners’ lessons from March 19.

The Neu­ro­log­i­cal Foun­da­tion’s ‘ Brain Day’ in Welling­ton on March 17 is very timely, says club pres­i­dent Ian Fowler. Peo­ple are con­stantly re­minded they need to keep learn­ing and de­vel­op­ing men­tal abil­i­ties – and bridge is an ex­cel­lent men­tal dis­ci­pline. Prob­lem solv­ing, an­tic­i­pa­tion, mem­ory, ‘‘ what if’’ sce­nar­ios, are all part of a bridge player’s ar­moury, but you don’t have to be a men­tal gi­ant to en­joy the game. Mr Fowler says bridge ap­peals to all ages and all skill lev­els.

‘‘Cer­tainly you can be a tour­na­ment com­peti­tor if that’s your bent, but the ma­jor­ity are keen play­ers who en­joy the game for the chal­lenge and the so­cial con­tact.’’

The se­ries of 10 ses­sions for be­gin­ning play­ers (or those want­ing to up­date their bridge knowl­edge) are run on Mon­day evenings at 7.30pm from March 19. Cost $50 in­cludes notes and 12 month mem­ber­ship. Con­tact David on 233-1866 or turn up on the night.
