"Bridge with Finesse" classes offer a wonderful opportunity for those who have already completed the beginning Club/Diamond series, or are returning to bridge after a long hiatus. The class begins with a one-half hour lesson, then moves into a duplicate bridge game with supervised play. Since these classes are on-going throughout the year, you need not commit to a series of lessons. So, come whenever you can and bring your favorite partner along, too.
