Bridge in Innsbruck

When we go on holidays Kay and I try to visit a bridge club occasionally. We have done it previously in Western Australia and New Zealand. On our recent trip to Europe we decided to visit a club in Innsbruck in Austria. This was a somewhat daunting task because our German language skills are fairly basic. We found the session times for the Innsbruck Bridge Club on the internet and printed out and completed an Austrian system card. We played a very simple system to avoid having to explain unusual bids.

LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS WILL COMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY 25 MAY FROM 10AM TO NOON, CONTINUING FOR EIGHT WEDNESDAYS IN TOTAL. THE VENUE IS THE FORMER HENLEY BOWLING CLUB OFF CROWN STREET, HENLEY. COST IS $10 PER LESSON (ON A PAY-AS-YOU-GO BASIS). NOTED BRIDGE TEACHER HELEN SHARWOOD WILL BE IN CHARGE.
