PEMBERVILLE - Otterbein Portage Valley Retirement Community is about to offer a nine-week course for bridge players looking to improve their game. It is open to OPV residents and the general public alike.
Instructor Bill Ryan will teach "Defense in the 21st Century" which involves weekly lessons in playing better defense. Statistics show a player will be on defense twice as often as they will be the declarer.  Ryan, a Silver Life master with the ACBL will take bridge players through opening leads, second and third hand play, defensive signaling, interference of declarer and developing defensive tricks.  The ninth lesson will focus on the negative double.  
Ryan will also provide all students with one free play at the Perrysburg Duplicate Bridge Club, which he operates.
Each lesson will last 90 minutes but spirited discussion by students may extend each session to two hours.  There is a $40 charge for the nine lessons, which includes a learners manual. Registration is required to Jaime at 419-833-8917.
Otterbein's five full-service retirement communities in western and northern Ohio are located in Pemberville, Lebanon, St. Marys, Cridersville, and on Lake Erie's Marblehead Peninsula. Otterbein also offers Small House Neighborhoods located in Perrysburg, Monclova and elsewhere.
Additional information is available at or by calling 1-888-513-9131.
