Brevard Bridge Club General Information

Brevard Bridge Club is a small, friendly club formed in March 2015.  Our club is located in Brevard, North Carolina--home of the white squirrel. Yes, you can sometimes see white squirrels in the parking lot.  Generally we host 6 to 8 tables and 10 to 12 in the summer months.  Brevard Bridge Club holds its sessions in the French Broad Community Center at 281 E. French Broad Street.  This center belongs to the City of Brevard.  Parking at the Center is limited, so come early for the best spots.  There are coffee and snacks at the games.  Although small, the club welcomes all newcomers.   Proof of complete vaccination is required to play.

Brevard Bridge Club to Sponsor Bruce Tyler Memorial Gold Rush Pairs Game at the Atllanta NABC on Tuesday, Nov 28th

The Brevard Bridge Club is proud to sponsor the Bruce Tyler Memorial Gold Rush Pairs two-session event at the North American Bridge Championship (NABC) in Atlanta on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.  Game times are 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  Bruce's picture and a brief bio will be featured prominently in the playing area and in the tournament daily bulletin on that day.

Bruce Tyler grew up in Thompsonville, CT and later became an attorney.  He enjoyed a long career, first in New York City and later in his Somers, CT, practice, which he operated for more than 40 years. He was married to Jane Mullowney for 39 years before her death in 2008.

Mr. Tyler's gregarious warmth, gift for friendship, and dedication to service, public and private, are evidenced by his engagement in any community of which he was part. During his life in Somers, he was involved with the Somers Village Players; the Lions Club; the Somers Democrats; and the boards of the Somers Public Library and Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford Springs, CT.

Upon his retirement, Bruce established himself in Brevard, NC, where he served on the Brevard College Business Major Advisory Board. Having learned bridge in his youth and picked up a love of the game from his mother, he played during college and while serving in the US Navy. Retirement allowed Bruce to resume playing bridge, mostly at the Brevard Bridge Club. He always had a smile on his face, and he lit up the room whenever he played. Undeterred as the pandemic struck, Bruce moved to play bridge online, making even more new friends and sharpening his skill. He was very successful, winning the 50-100 Masterpoint Mini-McKenney and Ace of Clubs races for all of District 7 in 2021. He also won the 20-50 Masterpoint Mini-McKenney and Ace of Clubs races for Unit 171 in 2020.

Bruce is sorely missed by the Brevard Bridge Club.
