Paignton trip November 2017

Eight tables of Bath BC players, some accompanied by non-playing partners, arrived at the Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton, on 27 October for a bridge weekend organised for us by Christine and Stuart MacFarlane. We played the Welcome Pairs on Friday evening, Swiss Pairs on Saturday evening and Teams on Sunday morning. There were also optional events during the day on Saturday but the weather was kind and most of us took the opportunity to explore the beautiful Devon countryside by car, steam train, ferry and on foot.

The hotel was comfortable, many of the rooms having sea views, and food and parking spaces were plentiful. The bridge, which was played in the spacious and well-appointed Isadora Duncan suite, was impeccably organised throughout. Everyone had a great time and it's hoped that there will be a similar event next year. Many thanks to Christine and Stuart for working so hard to provide a really enjoyable weekend.
