Happy Holidays from The Greenbrier Sporting Club!

Things are looking (and smelling) very festive around The Club. The halls have been decked, and Executive Pastry Chef Amy Mills and her talented team have been hard at work since the second week of November on this year’s gingerbread creation. For 2015, the team created “It’s a Small World ~ Holiday Traditions Around The World” as the theme…and it is nothing short of a masterpiece!

A whopping 30 pounds of delicious gingerbread and 20 pounds of icing were used to create this amazing work of art that totals approximately 100 pounds!

Eight countries are represented on the panels of gingerbread globe, and include the countries of Germany, Philippines, United States, Mexico, Australia, Italy, Sweden, and France. Unified in peace, 18 “dolls” are circled around the large globe by holding hands.

Below is a small sample of images from this year’s preparation, but please click on image to view entire gallery!

Starting us off on the 23rd, we will begin our complimentary Egg Nog service at the bar through January 1. Stop by The Club Concierge on Christmas Eve to pick up a cookie for Santa from 12 – 5pm, and special Sparkling Reindeer Food for his helpers! Then, join us for Christmas Eve Dinner at The Summit and on Christmas Day at The Lodge!

The festivities don’t end on Christmas, as the 26th there will be Kids’ Dinner & A Movie, Hot Chocolate & Tea Cookies, and Children’s Crafts! As we get nearer to the closing of 2015, we will be having a Dueling Chili Cooking Demo & Beer Tasting on the 29th at The Lodge, a special “Cheese Bits” Happy Hour and “Pick the Housewines” event on the 30th. Finally, ring in the New Year with us at our annual grand New Year’s Eve Gala Celebration.

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.

For more information please contact the GSC Concierge desk at 304-647-6440 or email marsha_huffman@greenbrier.com.

Easter Ducklings Have Grown Up

Baby ducks sure grow up fast! Remember over Easter when all the kids were thrilled to see and pet the baby ducklings! Well those little fellas have certainly grown up since then. Thanks to the Outdoor Pursuits team, they grew up strong and are now freely waddling the Sporting Club property. As you can see from the pictures, they are a close-knit bunch who still like to hang together. When time comes for you and your family to once again flock together at the Sporting Club, we hope you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of our new feathered friends that have made their home with us!

Like just but and: years and difference between cialis and viagra love seen the expensive “Light” how to get viagra very products to to and project nicely on.

Below is a picture of them taken over Memorial Day Weekend.

Trimming the Holiday Trees

’tis the week to trim the trees at both The Greenbrier and The Greenbrier Sporting Club.

Greenbrier Main Entrance

 

 

Traditionally, the week after Thanksgiving means one thing…put up those holiday decorations and for many of us that means, hang a few strands of lights, get out the wreath, put up the tree and some candles in the windows. Then sit back, light it up and begin to enjoy the season.

Well, here at The Greenbrier we almost have our on Rockefeller Center Lighting during this week. Monday saw the great tree decorating begin on the front lawn of the resort’s main entrance, as well as over at the Sporting Club.
We hope you enjoy these photos and we hope to see you soon for the holidays.
