CZECH WEEKEND

You are all invited to the  ‘Friends of Rod’ weekend,  8th September in the Czech Republic.

The suggested travel is on Ryanair from Birmingham to Bratislava on Thursday 7th September returning on Tuesday 12 September. This is a great time to play bridge and see  a little of life in the Czech Republic.  Petr arranges everything from the pickup at Bratislava Airport to bridge and visits to interesting places around. A highlight of the weekend is a village festival unique to the area, such as the  ‘Tree Raising’,  closing of the vineyards festival etc .

You would be staying at the village Pension which is a small but very comfortable hotel, all rooms en-suite, with a great choice of food. Non-bridge players are well catered for and are of course included on the trips. There is an excellent, cheap  transport system which allows visits to the surrounding towns, villages and countryside.

A weekend not to be missed.  Early flight booking is advised.

For further details see Sue Osborne, Wendy Pattinson or Phil Shorey.
