Newcomer is an ACBL sanctioned program to help players new to duplicate bridge.
It is offered to players having from 0 to 20 masterpoints. It gives players the opportunity to play
in an actual duplicate game while being supervised by an experienced instructor. Helen Pruitt
is currently running the Newcomer game with the assistance of Carolyn Wedel.
During the game Helen will offer bidding guidance while play is in progress. After the game hand records will be available for review.
A non-stressful environment during the game will be used to help focus and encourage the players to relax as they learn to play bridge. Generally about 12 boards will be played.
