Mini-Lessons Library

In furtherance of the Hartford Bridge Club’s educational mission, particularly with regard to beginning and advancing players, starting March 1, the mini-lessons created by Laurie Robbins, Linda Starr and Bill Watson and given before Monday afternoon, Tuesday evening and Thursday afternoon games will be posted here on a weekly basis.  These mini-lessons are an important component of the educational services provided by the club. Having them now available to everyone is a welcome and significant addition to our website.  Check back regularly as we keep adding more!
