District 17 has licensed Patty Tucker’s Bridge In a Day (BIAD) program. This program is a great starting place for new or returning players. The new students start with the introductory program which can be held in one day or 2 or 3 short lessons. New and Returning players benefit by participating in the ten lesson series on bidding and play. The ten lessons advance beginners knowledge and help returning players gain confidence. The program can be offered virtually or in person. Contact Sharon Smith for more information or to find a D17 BIAD Instructor.
