The Sectional location is The Kirby School in Santa Cruz, in Harvey West Park near Costco.

The 6PM lessons on Wednesday review and reinforce the basic conventions covered last year. Besides the lecture, there's handouts and quizzes to sharpen your game.
The game is open to pairs whose total masterpoints are less than 200. This allows advancing players to mentor newer players.
