Kids Bridge

Oh, the people you’ll meet!

What is Kids Bridge?

I give the younger students a place to play bridge with others who are just starting out as well.  All the players have completed at least a beginning set of  lessons.  The purpose is to give them the opportunity to practice and to speed up their play.  It is free!  You just need to sign up ahead of time.  Parents are welcome to stay and watch!  Call 816-237-0519 or e-mail to sign up and get directions.  This is usually held in my home, unless the numbers signing up require a larger space.  We hope to continue this starting some time in 2021.  After building up speed, for those who are comfortable with the idea, we plan to go play at some of the Duplicate Bridge Clubs in the area.

Sign up for a Virtual Youth Bridge Camp!  I normally teach for a week at the residential youth bridge camp in Carlinville, Il.  This year due to Covid-19, it is has been cancelled, but we’re not letting that stop us!  In its place YBEO is offering a virtual camp.  The same teachers that taught there last year will offer classes and tournaments online this year.  Two hour afternoon classes Monday through Friday and two hour evening tournaments Monday through Thursday will be offered.  Cost is $50 per student. Get the letter with details here.

I will play duplicate with you at a local club. The cost for this varies from free to $35, as follows: Kid prices: First 4 times I play with you, I’ll pay my own entry fee. Next 4 times I play with you, you’ll need to pay my entry fee. Playing with you time # 9 and above, you pay my entry fee and $35.
