Class 986 – MAH JONGG

– Two Afternoon Classes

 

While there are differing versions of the history and origin of this classic game, it has been popular throughout the world for many years. The game was actually banned by the government of the People’s Republic of China when it took power in 1949; the new Communist government forbade any gambling activities, which were regarded as symbols of capitalist corruption. It has since been revived there. Join two dedicated players, CHARLOTTE ROSS and CHICK RAFFA , and have fun learning what has attracted them to weekly games for several years. Classes are from 2:00 pm to 4pm and limited to 16. Monday, Jan 29 and Wednesday, Jan 31

She will present an informative, interactive course featuring new/current trends in her field, first aid for our pets’ injuries or illnesses, and ways to optimize the human-animal bond.

CLASS 990 – HOME MAINTENANCE ON THE OUTER BANKS

 

Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy life in an Outer Banks home that never required any care? This class can’t make that fantasy come true, but it will provide you with lots of great information to protect your investment. These two fellows can teach you how to carry out routine maintenance tasks – some of which you didn’t even know need doing – plus identify potential problem areas to watch out for. DAVID FEYRER, a retired Episcopal priest, has renovated most of his home, doing much of the work himself and acting as general contractor for the rest. BOB RICHE, a retired Naval Officer and business executive, has the distinction of having made nearly every mistake possible in home maintenance; he can help you avoid doing the same! Topics will include vacation preparation; care of floors; heating and cooling; kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms; interior and exterior walls; roofing; and mold remediation, in an interactive class with time for questions. Friday, Feb 16.

 

CLASS 991 – BATHROOM DESIGN

 

Ever feel like you’re the only one with an outdated bathroom? It’s amazing how calming and soothing an attractive, comfortable bath area can be, especially in the mornings as you prepare for a busy day, and evenings winding down from one. TERRY TALBERT is the owner of Esprit Design, offering architectural, interior design and décor services. Her class will focus on bathroom design that includes layout, functionality, safety, budget planning … and luxury! You may be closer than you think to “AHHH!” Bubble bath with wine, anyone? Or are you the expansive, walk-in shower type? Class size is limited to 20 students. Tuesday, Feb 27

 

CLASS 992 – SHAG DANCING

 

“There is no dance more associated with the South than shagging and there is no place more accommodating to shagging than the South. Learning to shag is learning to be a Southerner. It’s learning to hear the ocean in your head and the music in your step. It’s learning to bend your knees, relax your shoulders, and shuffle, slide and spin while The Embers sing about wise men and falling in love.” All that and good exercise too! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, come join local retired educators SANDY and JEFF ALBARTY, who will share their joy of the dance and teach you shagging, Southern style. Wear leather bottom shoes or socks, no tennis-type shoes. Wednesday, Jan 31

 

CLASS 993 – HAND AND FOOT CARD GAME

 

Hand and Foot is a Canasta-type card game played by four people, two sets of partners. Players are dealt two stacks of cards (“the Hand” and “the Foot”). The “Hand” must be played before the “Foot” is
used. The object is to get the most points by making canastas and using all the cards in one’s hand and foot. Play continues up to a score of 10,000 points, with the meld increasing with each round. “Hand and Foot” can be enjoyed by everyone from teen through adult. You’ll see how playing cards, a few friends, and maybe a glass of wine can be the mix for a great evening – and you’ll be hooked! Join SALLY and JACK MYERS to learn this game that’s a barrel of fun. Thursday, Feb 22

 

CLASS 994 – AMUSING THE GRANDKIDS ON A RAINY DAY
 

Ever run out of things to do with visiting grandchildren? Join MARILYN CONNAUGHTON, a retired science teacher with 23 years of experience, for fun problem solving activities that can be adapted to different age ranges. All require inexpensive items, usually things you find around the house, and are based on scientific principles. They encourage skills of observation and problem solving, skills useful in science – and in life! Class participants will team up to practice activities with a partner. An evening of challenge and fun! Class size limited to 16. Thursday, Feb 8

The class will be led by BOB BURK, current Chair of Outer Banks SCORE, who has started and owned six different businesses while simultaneously maintaining a 30 year corporate career as a marketing and communications executive. Wednesday, Jan 31

Wondering what to do with all that stuff you have in the attic, or the “treasures” inherited from ”Aunt Gertrude?” This class is a beginner’s guide to determining if something has value, is collectable, or is just “cool.” BETSY and BREWSTER BROWN have owned B&B Antiques in Kitty Hawk for the past nine years.
