TEENS: Try Something New. Learn Bridge!

Bridge. A game that is hugely popular worldwide but most teens have never heard of it. Played in more countries at clubs and tournaments than any other card game, bridge is a fun and challenging competition enjoyed by millions. 
Here is the chance for teens to learn this great game from local top flight bridge players from the MV Bridge Club.

Free Bridge Class will take place on Tuesday January 14th right after school at 3 pm at Alex's Place. There will be snacks and beverages. There are a limited number of spaces available. Cards and tables will be provided. 

Encourage your teen to try something different. Step away from technology for a moment and enjoy a timeless game.

I know what Harriet "the Spy" Welsch would say about this, but she was only 11 when she rejected bridge. Thanks for posting! I made a note to include this in the Week Ahead and Today on MV features that week.

Yes, let's teach the younger generation something that we know. We're always trying to catch up to them.
Harriet was a favorite of mine Louisa. I was thrilled when Bea Phear and David Donald met with me and proposed the idea. At Alex's Place we always talk about building bridges between teens and the community. This is a great "bridge" and I hope it takes form with the kids. One thing is for sure; any time away from computers, phones etc is good time...happy holidays from all of us at Alex's Place at the Y

I love to see this kind of collaboration. Alex's Place is really making things happen around here. Happy holidays to you, too, Tony!
