Byron Bay Bridge Holiday 2018

Byron Bay Bridge Holiday with Joan Butts

The end of May was a lovely time for our five day bridge holiday at the beautiful five star Byron at Byron, on the outskirts of Byron Bay.

The resort has been designed so that each guest suite is in the lush rain forest, so there's a great feeling of tranquility being able to look out onto native ferns and trees. Kookaburras and other Aussie birds were in abundance too, and glorious flowers everywhere, on each table in the dining area, and in vases in our perfect bridge room. We were made to feel very welcome, and the smiling staff were all exceptional.  

My lessons followed a theme, and all notes, hands and quizzes were available in a booklet that will soon be for sale on my website at Shop. The first lesson each morning, on Bidding, covered Conventions to Improve your Strong hand Bidding, and the second focused on Managing the Play

Forty people joined in, and teamed up to play most of the sessions. Congrats to the winners, and here are the results.

John and Lyn Parche, General managers of the resort, kindly donated a wonderful prize of two nights accommodation for the winners of the Byron at Byron Swiss Pairs. Ronnie Kennedy and Catherine Armstrong are the lucky (clever!) recipients. TBIB (Tony Bemrose Insurance Brokers, aka The Bridge Insurance Brokers) also donated prizes for each session of the event. Thanks!  

Old friendships were rekindled and new ones made. Can't wait for my Sydney Harbour Holiday in September!
