Learn Bridge in a Day
Learn Bridge in a Day

Wow.  Just wow!  On Sunday, July 13th, the VBC hosted approximately 170 folks eager to learn to play bridge.  That's 42+ tables - the biggest event in the history of Learn Bridge in a Day, according to presenter, Patty Tucker. 

There will be a concerted effort to bring these students back to the VBC for formal bridge lessons and to play in our Newcomer Games.  Patty Tucker reports that other bridge clubs have experienced retention rates of 30% to 70% of LBIAD participants.  Even 30% would bring over 50 new players to the VBC!

Grace Whitlow did a terrific job of organizing this event.  Many thanks to the 60+ volunteers who helped make this day special.  There will be more about the event later.

Vanderbilt Bridge Club
Vanderbilt Bridge Club

The Vanderbilt Bridge Center is a member owned duplicate bridge club named for Harold S. Vanderbilt, the man credited with inventing contract bridge in the mid-1920s. The center is located west of downtown Nashville and hosts 17 games weekly, including eight limited masterpoint games for new and intermediate players. All sessions are open to members and non members alike. Day and evening bridge classes are also available.

Pictorial Directory

We are working on a pictorial directory and as of 12/23 we have 321 members' pictures.  To view a copy of the directory, click here.  If you would like to be included, please contact Rees Mitchell.  He can either take your picture at the club or you can forward a picture to him which can be included in the directory.  If you do not want to have a picture published, please let Rees know.

VBC Cookbook PreSales Begin Now
VBC Cookbook PreSales Begin Now

The long-anticipated VBC Cookbooks have been delivered and are available for sale at the VBC.  The cookbook includes over 400 delicious recipes from VBC members.  Anne Hitt did a wonderful job of coordinating the design and production of the cookbooks, and we think you’ll be very impressed with their quality.

The cookbooks are priced at $15 each or $25 for two, and all profits benefit the VBC.  These will make GREAT holiday gifts!  You may pay by cash, check (payable to VBC), or credit card.  Jay and Anne Hitt are handling the sales.
