Casino Royale! 8 June

Last Friday we had a Casino afternoon here at Lexis Byron Bay!

Lexis Noosa kindly lent us their poker mat & chips and here at Lexis Byron we got a new roulette wheel for the occasion!

At one end of the table we had Jeff leading the Poker Tournament,

and at the other I was in charge of Roulette, with Dana doing an excellent job as the dealer.

All of our students had been given vouchers to exchange for $100 worth of chips, with the person finishing with the most winning a 6 pack of beer!

Our poker players attempted to keep their poker faces by wearing sunglasses, but couldn’t keep serious for long enough!

Crisps and nuts were provided to keep the students energy up, and they also had brigadeiro (traditional Brazilian desert) which they had made during their Options class!

The poker tournament was going on for quite some time, so as the only two players left with chips Luis and Lucas decided to share the winners prize:

The afternoon was great fun and I’m already looking forward to doing it again soon!
