Hey, friends! Did you hear the one about the bridge player who got out of a speeding ticket? They really knew how to finesse the situation! Too much of stretch? Ok, we’ll see ourselves out. Check the news first, though!

Wishing on a Star(dust)

Stardust_Week_Icon Don’t just wish for gold points; play for them during Stardust Week, April 25-May 1!

Another Stardust Week will soon be taking over the virtual clubs on BBO, and like before, double masterpoint® awards, 25% gold, 75% black. There’s no special registration to participate. Simply play in your usual virtual club games, and your awards will have a golden gleam to them.

It’s More than Just Zoom

OTCthumbNeed help navigating the world of teaching bridge online? Take our online course and learn about great tools for teaching bridge virtually and best practices for using them.

Like the Best Practices Teacher program, the Online Teacher Certification workshop focuses on how, not what, to teach. But on top of that, it features tactics for instruction in a digital world.

The next Online Teacher Certification workshop is May 10-11 and May 17-18 (must attend all four sessions).
