Our Leura holiday 2014

Bridge players came from near and far: Queensland, Canberra, Southern Highlands and Sydney to enjoy 4 days of bridge and fun with David and John. We were also joined by ‘locals’ who travelled up from various towns in the Blue Mountains, Windsor and Emu Plains.

As usual, free time was greatly enjoyed: walking to Sublime Point and Pool of Siloam, playing golf, bike rides, shopping and resting! Who said that bridge players aren’t an active group????

Mornings were spent with David learning new skills – the “Combine Your Chances” session was particularly popular, although there was considerable discussion about the percentages for each option. Afternoons featured duplicate games with delicious fruit for afternoon tea and drinks afterwards, plus dinner at local restaurants, of course.

Have a look at our photo gallery for more pictures. Many thanks to Kerry Rymer and Kit Meyers for their wonderful photos.
