Lessons begin this week with the ever-popular Anita Curtis. This is an excellent opportunity to 'get your feet wet' with such an accomplished teacher. The cost is $100 for 6 lessons, after which you can continue weekly with Anita to hone and practise your skills. Then, when you're ready, we have the perfect gentle duplicate session for you to join on Thursdays. And bring a friend - it's fun to learn together. The lessons will be held at the Henley Community Centre on Crown Street in Henley from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Read on...

2015 promises to be another busy year, starting with another session of beginners' lessons on Thursdays (10am-12pm) commencing on 29 January. Taught by acclaimed teacher, Anita Curtis, the cost will be $100 for six lessons, followed by a series of lessons and supervised sessions to bring new players up to a level where they can join in our regular duplicate sessions. This might be the only chance in 2015 for new players to start lessons with Anita. If you know anyone (partners, friends, relatives, neighbours) who might be interested, please ask them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Linda Allen on 9879 6803. There will be small fliers available at all sessions for you to distribute. If you have a good place where you could post a flier, please contact us. We'll need all the help we can get to fill this class on short notice. Off we go!
Our Christmas Party on Monday, December 15th is going to be HUGE! Please be aware that the session begins at 12:30 p.m. (not at 11:00 a.m. as on a normal Monday). This has been announced at all sessions. If you know of anyone without internet, can you please remind them of this change. Parking promises to be a nightmare. Carpool if you can. We are not permitted to park in the pre-school carpark. Can we ask some of our fitter members to park out on the street and walk down. Please try to arrive by 12 noon as seating will surely take a very long time. Santa will be very busy!
Our only closures will be on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. This means that all of Peter's Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday sessions during the Christmas season will go ahead, including Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. Charles will be directing on Friday, January 2nd and all sessions thereafter will operate as normal. Happy Christmas!
