Bridge For Kids
Tuesday 12 July 2016 – start at 10am finishing at 12 noon with ice cream and pizza. Cost $2.

For children to attend Bridge for Kids it is expected that a parent, grandparent or guardian accompany each minor and assist if needed. The convenors will have “Working with Vulnerable Youth” registrations. The target age is ten to twelve but younger ie eight, and older, to sixteen would be acceptable.

Card games include any trick taking game such as Old Maid, Hearts and mini bridge for older children. A competent player will supervise each table of four. This person could be an accompanying adult. As participants progress they may consider further lessons or participate in an accommodating bridge session.

We are asking the club membership to embrace this initiative by considering and volunteering to assist where possible.

We would like more participants. Please register your interest.
Names of possible participants and helpers can be given to the office for the attention of Elainne Leach or Chris Sheen. They can be contacted by email.
