GSC to Celebrate Mother’s Day and Kentucky Derby May 7 & 8

What do mothers and three-year-olds have in common? Both will be celebrated in style May 6-8 at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. Saturday delivers one of America’s finest traditions, with the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby, featuring the world’s greatest three-year-old racehorses in a field that continues to pull even as the race approaches. For the Derby on Saturday, May 7th, hors d’oeuvres begin at 4 p.m. at The Members’ Lodge, with a race post time of 6:24 p.m. Also on Saturday, the club is offering “The Art of Gaming” class in The Casino Club from 4-5p.m with Art Kusakull. A signature drink such as a Mimosa is offered to members while Art provides an overview of Blackjack and Roulette. Advanced registration required by Thursday, 5/05/11.

On Sunday, we shift gears and honor our mothers on their special day. Mother’s Day was actually initiated by the West Virginian Anna Jarvis, who passed out 500 white carnations at her mother’s church, St. Andrew’s Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia—one for each mother in the congregation. The Greenbrier Sporting Club’s celebration will include an a la carte brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members can call now and secure gift certificates for Ananda Spa services, dining at either the Lodge or Summit, golf on The Snead, and a number of other activities.

GSC to Host Week of Fishing At Rainbow Bay Resort in Alaska


June is the beginning of the king salmon run and the fishing for rainbow trout, arctic grayling, and arctic char is very good. The big rainbows will be feeding on the outgoing migration of salmon smolts and after a long winter under the ice they are ready to feed.

We will have six full days of action packed fishing. Each day begins with breakfast at the lodge and then we head off in jet boats or float planes to our daily fishing location. Lunch is streamside with big hearty dinners back at the lodge.
The lodge at Rainbow Bay Resort has ample space for you to spread out and relax after a tough day of fishing. The lodge sleeps ten people so our group will have it all to ourselves. Bedrooms have two queen beds and private baths.

Cost for this trip is $6000.00, includes food and lodging at Rainbow Bay Resort, fly out guided fishing, beer and wine. Does not include fishing license and king salmon tag, liquor, travel to Anchorage, food and lodging in Anchorage, or transportation from Anchorage to Rainbow Bay Resort.
