OTHER QUESTIONS:  A form requesting contact information and any food allergies will need to be completed before any children can play.  That form will be available at the playing site.  Kathy Rolfe will be teaching on these Sundays.  Kathy has taught bridge to youth for over 20 years.  She has taught for many years at the Youth Bridge Education week long summer camp in Carlinville, IL and in that role of teacher is a mandated reporter for child abuse.  She has been background checked in both Illinois and Missouri.

Looking for volunteer table coaches for these Sundays.  If you can volunteer, please let Kathy know.

Shawnee Mission students we are looking for you, this program is right in your backyard!

Looking for Event Space

Mo-Kan would like to start a youth bridge education program on Saturday mornings!  We are looking for space to hold the lesson followed by supervised play.  A snack in between the lesson and play would be provided.  The program would be either free or for a nominal fee.  In order to do that, the space needs to be offered either free or at minimal cost.  We would need the space from about 9:30 to noon, or possibly 9 to 11:30.  We’d like to offer it beginning the second Saturday in October.  If you know of an organization that could help us out, have them email us or message us.

Learning bridge teaches one how to think, not what to think!  China, India, and Europe are way ahead of us!

If we get this going, we will also be in need of volunteer bridge teachers (or almost volunteer) and volunteer table coaches.  If you would like to help please let  your Kansas City area board members know!
