During the Covid crisis we have been playing and teaching online on a Friday morning and many of our members have also been playing in other non U3A groups as well as some social groups. This has greatly relieved social isolation during the Covid crisis.

We have now planning our season 21-22 and plan to have 3 groups operating.
Beginners, Refreshers and Play and Learn Groups play every Friday morning.
New members welcome

Beginners and refreshers have Zoom presentation followed by play online on hands geared to the lesson with a mentor available to help.

Play and Learn Play 12 hands online followed by in depth zoom discussion of bidding and play with a very experienced player. (10.30)

If you would like to join us whether you have played some bridge in the past or are an absolute beginner, please contact Ann Wickens 01381621051 or email annwickens75@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Accompanying the beginners and refresher courses there are quizzes, student notes and other learning aids.
The third group is a play group and will incorporate some topics not covered in the course as well as reinforcing aspects of the course. The hands will be played as a small tournament and results will appear in U3A Bridge website https://www.bridgewebs.com/invernessblackisleu3a/ and in Caledonian Bridge Club site https://www.bridgewebs.com/caledonian/ . Here you can see an analyses of hands and can replay at home.

Everyone interested in taking part should let me know which group they wish to join, preferably by email.

For the beginners and intermediate courses we follow a 20 lesson course which we have been trialling for a number of years and has now been adopted by the Scottish Bridge Union. In all courses questions are welcomed.

There will also be occasional tournaments on line.
Many of our players play in other on line events when they have enough experience.
There are also opportunities for those wanting to gain experience to play in teams of 4 on line against other beginners.
We also have groups teaching online in schools. If you would like to participate contact Ann

In the longer term we are actively considering ways and means of playing safely face to face and if so it will be in Trinity Church halls . Safety will be our first consideration.
Keep well and safe and enjoy the rest of the summer.
