When: Sat., May 17, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 2014
Add some knowledge of the game of bridge and reap the benefits of what some have called the world’s greatest game.
And if you don’t have too many bowls of bridge mix, it can be good for your health! Studies have shown that playing bridge or chess, working crossword puzzles or playing a musical instrument can help keep the mind sharp and improve concentration. The game is so universal that it offers an entrée to a new location and circle of friends in nearly every corner of the world.
If you’ve never played, or haven’t played in a long time, a seminar on Saturday, May 17, 2014, will teach basics including bidding, playing and scoring – enough to get started – or restarted – in the game.
Titled “Learn Bridge in a Day?” the seminar is being presented by the Central Indiana Bridge Association, in conjunction with Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation. It will be from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Monon Community Center, 1235 Central Park East Drive, in Carmel. Fee is $30, which includes instruction, printed materials and a box lunch.
Open to anyone 18 and older, registration can be made in person at the Monon Community Center, online at www.carmelclayparks.com or by phone at (317) 573-5248.
