Club #50: Shadowfax Bridge Club in Chester, NJ

June 7th – Chester, NJ Shadowfax Bridge Club

For days I would mention to people my ‘last’ stop would be in Chester NJ. Where is Chester NJ? I told Jan Weber that I would have to come back to Chester some other time because they had no game on Tuesday. She said, ‘No problem, we’ll have a game Tuesday instead of Wednesday’. I was wondering what facility is this flexible.

It seems that Laureen Alcock loves bridge and wanted a bridge club in her home. So her husband built her a house with a large room upstairs that holds eight tables comfortably and another room takes the overflow. Laureen joined forces with Jan Weber to form the Shadowfax BC. Where that name came from I don’t exactly know but I do know that Laureen used to have a horse named Shadow. This house is on a small horse farm. I played with District President, Glenda Calkins and we had a very nice game. Talk about a friendly game; many of the players at this game have been friends for years. I still don’t know exactly where Chester is, but I am glad I went there.

That marks the halfway point of Craig’s club tour, but check back next week for a “bonus” club visit.

    Hi, Craig,

    Shadowfax was Gandalf’s horse in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
