BRIDGE for BEGINNERS Wednesday 9.00am - 11.45am

You can learn Bridge at the Toowoomba Bridge Club. The classes will teach bidding, declarer play and defence. Teaching will be conducted by one of our experienced teachers, Trudy Dunne. Players will be able to move into other sessions held at the club as their experience and skills grow.

CARD GAME 'JOEY' - Wednesday - 2.00pm - 4.00pm

As this is a made-up game everyone is a beginner and it's easy to learn. The benefit of this game is that you play (and score) as an individual at a table of 3 to 4 players. Similar to "May I", it is a playing card game with 7 rounds in which you have to get combinations of at least 3 of a kind and/or at least 4 in a straight (same suit). The winner in each round is the first person to get rid of all their cards. The remaining players add up the score for the cards still in their hands. The name 'Joey' is simply for the kangaroo figurines used as tokens.

Large print playing cards and plastic card holder stands provided
