The people I've played with have been really friendly and very helpful, but nothing takes the places of actually knowing how to bid and play the hand. More than a few of us need a formal refresher course. Would any members be interested in starting a short term class with a bridge instructor? If so, we could decide if the class could be held in our usual location or if we needed to move it to a private home. I would be the first sign up for the class, but I don't know any teachers.
