This program began March 2015.

the Boys and Girls Club

EasyBridge Lessons

MBEF sponsors an 8-lesson Easybridge! series of classes on a periodic basis throughout the year, held on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30. The Foundation offers the series very affordably, requesting only a $50.00 tax-deductible donation. The next series will be announced on this Web Site. Please check our calendar for upcoming dates. One of our Board members, Doug Halleen teaches these classes and is a certified Easybridge ! instructor, as well as a certified ACBL instructor and member of ABTA (American Bridge Teachers Association). If you are interested in taking a series of classes or volunteering your help, use our contact form.

Shuffle & Play

The Foundation offers a supervised Shuffle & Play on Thursday afternoon from 2:30-4:30 at the Monterey Bridge Center. Hetty Eddy, another Board member, oversees the Shuffle & Play, offering bidding or play suggestions on request. This is a FUN couple hours that offers the newer player the opportunity of learning while playing, and there is no cost.

Intermediate Lessons and Private Group Lessons

Intermediate lessons are offered at the Monterey Bridge Center on a periodic basis by different instructors, not necessarily through the Foundation and at different costs. Private lessons at various levels of expertise can also be available. Please use our contact form.
