Bridge for Beginners
with Tammy Gill
In this class you will learn the basic rules for playing bridge. You will learn the meaning of a trick, book, and bid. After a short lesson, you will play bridge. Most importantly, you will have fun while learning this great game.
Tammy Gill and her husband, along with ten friends, started taking bridge lessons seven years ago when they became empty nesters. The lessons continued for five years, and the group of twelve still play together every other week.
Chess: The Basics and Beyond
with Tac Tacelosky
Have you ever watched people playing chess, and thought "I'd like to be able to play"? Or maybe you know the rules and how the pieces move but aren't sure what to do next? This class is for you. You'll learn (or review) the rules, then move to how to coordinate the pieces, with a smattering of tactics, strategy and opening theory. By the end of the class, you'll be able to confidently sit across the board and say "Let's play!"
Note: While participants may bring any chess set, a tournament chess set is recommended: $17 on Amazon (green roll-up vinyl chessboard).
Tac Tacelosky co-hosts a Monday Night Chess Meetup in Dupont Circle, where he lives during the week. He's been enjoying chess for more than 4 decades.
