At the close of the event everyone enjoyed a wine or beer with hot and cold savouries before heading home.
Nick Ledingham of the Tomaree Bridge Club told News Of The Area, “It was another successful Congress which is growing in popularity each year not only because of the well- directed bridge event but also the attraction of a weekend in beautiful Port Stephens with wonderful food to be enjoyed by all.
“The Congress was directed by John McIlrath who did a brilliant job keeping the event running smoothly and on time,” he said.
