A truly gifted teacher is an artist with the subject matter being their medium.
Nicci Beninger and the other volunteer teachers at the Lake Chapala Duplicate Bridge Center (LCDBC) work to stimulate interest in their beloved bridge game. Active learning is an antidote to loneliness, despair and decline as time passes. We hope many readers will attend classes to discover if bridge should be a part of their lives going forward.
Nicci is teaching beginners classes on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m.; Boyce Robbins teaches intermediate classes on Mondays at noon; Louise Morel supervises direct play sessions at Wednesday at 1 p.m.; and Mary Ann White and Janet Thompson teach more experienced beginners and intermediate players on Friday mornings at 9 a.m.
Games are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 1:15 and Friday at 9:30.
These teaching sessions and games are all at the LCDBC, located two doors east of Mom’s restaurant in Riberas del Pilar.
