Classic Conventions are drop-in workshops where you can learn some of the most useful bridge conventions. If you already have some familiarity with the convention, these workshops will help you master the finer points so the convention becomes a more powerful tool for your partnership. Whether you are looking to add new tools to your game or simply want a better understanding of them, these workshops are for you.

Play for HALF-PRICE in the 12:30 game on the same day – bridge handicaps in Tuesday's Open game, except 1/9 (STaC). Tuition: $13 per workshop; $10 for Newtown Bridge Club members. A handout is provided at each workshop.

This is an intermediate level class. Knowledge of Stayman, Jacoby transfer and Blackwood conventions are prerequisites. To get the most from these workshops, bring your partner!
