Deschapelles is a women’s bridge club. On holidays they allow men to play. Today is Memorial Day.
The club has history. My understanding is that many years ago, men would come to the game to escort their lady home, but they were not allowed in the bridge playing area, they had to wait for them in the lounge below.
They had 32 tables and a rather large percentage of men playing. I played with A J Stephani, still the Unit President and we did well and it was well directed by Pat Newman. They prepared a lot of food for lunch which we actually broke for during the 4th and 5th rounds.
