Road Scholar
Program #13192RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
This class will feature more complex concepts for the advancing intermediate player. Focus on useful conventions such as weak two bids, strong two clubs, negative doubles, transfer bidding, strong major suit raises and Roman Key card. Also featured in this course will be concepts on play of the hand, signals and partnership defense.


Highlights

• Learn why every bridge player is familiar with preemptive bids — often called the “great equalizer” — but few use them to great advantage.
• Your bridge expert goes in-depth on set hands, trial duplicate sessions and bidding challenges.
• After a day of honing your skills and learning new ones, apply them during lively evenings of play with your fellow participants and new friends.

Program Notes

Familiarity required with Staymen and transfers, opening responses, suit bids, overcalls and advances, take-out doubles, forcing, leads and signals.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

There is minimal standing and walking on this program.

Coordinated by Georgia College and State University.
