Welcome to Vanderbilt Bridge Club of Nashville
VBC is open for Face-to-Face Bridge

We are excited to return to Face-to-Face Bridge!!

Certain of our online games and times have changed to avoid conflicts with our live games, so you should be sure to read this week's schedule to plan your online play. We hope you will plan to participate in our online offerings and encourage your friends to do so as we continue in this period of transition.

Until further notice, these are the protocols we will be following for face-to-face games at the VBC:

  • In-person play will be restricted to fully vaccinated players. Proof of vaccination will be required (once).
  • Because everyone who plays will be vaccinated, masks will be OPTIONAL.
  • All players must complete a Claims Release, regarding their informed decision to come play and socialize with other players.
  • Coffee, water, and soft drinks will be available, but the club will not be providing food. NOTE: coffee is now FREE; purified water is available for free via faucet in the sink in the coffee area; and soft drinks are available for $0.75 from the soda machine. Players may bring their own snacks or brown bag if they wish.

These are the face-to-face games that we are offering this week:

  • 10:30 am Monday - Open, 499'er, and 99'er games.
  • 10:30 am Wednesday - 1499'er and 99'er games
  • 12:00 noon Thursday - Open (NEW!)
  • 1:00 pm Saturday - Open and 499'er games.

There will be a table at both the front and back entrances, where a volunteer will check your proof of vaccination and collect your signed Release of All Claims. You will then receive an "Approved Player" card that you can use for all future in-person games at the VBC. After that, you move on to the Director's Desk, where you will pay your game fee and receive a table assignment. 

NOTE: you will only have to provide your proof of vaccination and signed Release the first time you play at the club. We will maintain a list of players who have fulfilled these requirements, and you will also have an "Approved Player" card so you don't have to repeat the process every time you show up to play.

 

We are so excited to take these initial steps to reopen the VBC after being closed for over a year. Please make your plans to join us often. We can't wait to see your smiling faces!

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.

As you may have noticed, your pair's pictures are now displayed when you view your results.  If you click on your opponents names, you will see their pictures too.  We also have an online pictorial directory of 426 of our members and pictures may be viewed at the Members Only screen.  If you don't have a picture on file (VBC Picture Needed - updated 2/28/18) and you would like it to be or if you don't like the picture that is posted, you have several options to add one.  If you already have a digital picture, you may send it to our webmaster, Rees Mitchell.  If you don't have a digital picture and know someone with a digital camera or smartphone, you can have a picture made and email or text it to Rees.  You could also ask one of the directors to take a picture of you.  The final option is you can send a hardcopy picture to Rees.  His address is in the phone directory, which may be viewed on the Members Only part of the website.  

Pictures help us get to know the names of other members of the club and make it a more enjoyable experience.  We hope you will choose to participate.  If you do not want to have a picture published, please let Rees know and he will add your name to the do not publish list.

Here is a sample from a recent game featuring Coley McGinnis and Linda Hanson.
