“USA under Prohibition”
Friday April 13th From January 1920 until 1933 the USA was under Prohibition. Serious laws were set throughout the USA, Speakeasies, rum running and Al Capone still made it possible for people to imbibe. But many believed in "Teetotalism" when socializing. Bring along a special brand of 'TEA' for your 75 bonus points today.
n 9:30 am 149er pairs. Club Championship. This morning enjoy 'tea and biscuits" with your morning bridge game. This game is OPEN to anyone with fewer than 150 masterpoints.
n 12:30 OPEN Pairs Club Championship. A wide variety of TEA will be available for the afternoon along with some delightful sweets. Bring your house symbol for 50 bonus Spirit Points.
7:00 INDIVIDUAL Club Championship - Even with Prohibition there were many ways to find some alcohol - especially along the Canadian board - tonight as true Canadians we will break prohibition with beer and pretzels (and wine & cheese). NO partner needed - this is a FUN game and everyone is invited to play!!
Day 5 Recap:
What a great day and thank you Bill for taking charge as I was unable to attend for the morning or afternoon. I hear I missed Kate's tarts (Lemon for the Lindbergh team) and cherry pound cake (from Helen - Einsteins - who BTW looked stunning in her "flapper" outfit - I hope SOMEONE took a photo!) for bonus spirit points. Did I mention the famous Beryl fudge we had Tuesday for the Lindbergh team? The individual game proved to be as much fun as ever with a wonderful collective group of players. Stuart Eastwood pulled off lots of masterpoints for the Einsteins! Bill told me I missed a wonderful duet from Sandra MacDonald and Anne Coffin this morning in honour of the Charlie Chaplin team.
The standings after the Friday Night INDIVIDUAL GAME are:
|Chaplins - 9358|
|Einsteins - 8715|
|Lindberghs - 8612|
|Babe Ruths - 8428|

have a strong field of players - remember the hotdogs will be ready just before
game time. 50 Spirit points for Hats, beads or boas -- and
