An enthusiastic crowd of 575 Commodore faithful turned out to hear Kevin Stallings, Melanie Balcomb and Bobby Johnson speak at the National Commodore Club Barbecue Tuesday evening.

The event was designed for fans to meet and greet the Vanderbilt athletics staff and hear first-hand of recent happenings. A large number of Commodore staff not on the program was also in attendance.

Speakers gave a brief update of their team’s recent news along with a general forecast for the season.

Balcomb, hired less than a month ago as women’s basketball coach, discussed her observations as a newcomer to the program - including the home court advantage the Commodores have with their vocal fan support.

Johnson, who will be coaching his first Vanderbilt football team this fall, updated fans on his squad’s summer activity and mentioned how improving football facilities are aiding his program.

Master of Ceremonies Joe Fisher ran through a list of individual and team accomplishments for the 2001-02 year.

The barbecue was free to NCC members and was catered by McConnell’s, one of Nashville’s finest caterers.
