Picture of Emily Kelly

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi All! My name is Emily, though you may call me Ms. Kelly or Em-dog. I have been playing bridge for about two years and LOVE it! It's a great way to meet older kids and give your brain a solid workout. In addition to school and bridge, I enjoy Tai Chi, the sun, traveling and Thai food. I'm so excited to meet you and teach you the greatest game ever (get at me, chess)!

H4643: Introduction to Bridge (the card game!) in Splash Fall 2015 (Nov. 07 - 08, 2015)
Question: What do Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have in common? Answer: They're both billionaires and they both love the card game bridge. If you too aspire to become a bridge-playing billionaire, then the first step is to learn how to play bridge! (Sadly, the second step is not covered in this class.) Bridge is a fun and brainy card game somewhat like hearts and spades. It's played 2 vs 2, so good communication and teamwork are key to victory. (Another benefit of bridge being played 2 vs 2 is that if you ever lose - hypothetically, of course - you've got someone other than yourself to blame!) This class is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn bridge. No experience necessary!
