We distribute this magazine at the end of our beginner lessons before their first "duplicate " game. It is well written, highly professional and has a lot of good material regarding duplicate bridge. I really like the Fat Free Convention Card. It is the one that we suggest to our new players.
However the articles by Boehm, Stewart and Kantar are way beyond our beginners. Could you replace them with articles that address their level? It takes our players awhile to figure out should they go to game when partner opens and they hold 13 points, and do I really open 1NT with 15 points and a weak doubleton? Maybe this reflects more on the teaching than the learning, I am not sure.
But articles geared more to the entry level bridge student would be less intimidating in my view.

We are using these these in "Welcome Packages" for our LBIAD program.

This is a great marketing piece, well-written and packed full of important and interesting things for our new and potential-new members. We've been distributing them and found a lot of interest generated by the material.

With my 0-199 group I have students that have never tried duplicate bridge. The magazine gave them insight into the world of bridge.

I ordered Bridge Life to include in a goody bag for our participants in Learn Bridge in a Day? presentation. I think it is a good publication and hope that the participants will give it a look see. I also will be giving these to my students hoping to spur interest in joining the ACBL.

The students I teach range from raw beginners up "early intermediates". Most have had little or no exposure to the world of duplicate bridge or the ACBL. This magazine has a very well-designed and professional look. There are several articles aimed at exactly my audience. I ordered enough copies to give to all my students and they seemed very appreciative. I told them it was a free "gift" from the ACBL. They loved it!

A well written magazine. High quality publication. It seems to be a recruitment piece for non-ACBL bridge players.
The ACBL is developing several stand-alone advertising items, but if there is an overall game plan, it is not being communicated.
I'd like to see more top-down planning, integrated ideas and some recognition that the Marketing staff understands the issues.

This has good content. Not too complicated for beginners and has a gentle sell on joining the ACBL. I would like to continue giving this to my students. Please try to publish at least 3 times a year.

I am starting a refresher class for social/former players and plan to give one to each participant. I'm hoping to overcome the "duplicate is too heard/mean/scary, etc" mentality and this publication is a good start.

I teach a nine-week beginner course. At the last lesson, I gave these magazines out. My students were visibly excited to get their hands on this magazine. There are a lot of great items in this magazine written just for novice players. It is presented with beautiful graphics and high-quality print. I was proud to have this to give to my students. We talked about some of the content and I was able to show them how to sign up to the ACBL with the form at the back.
