Monday, August 14
Busyness: August is a slow month at the club. The membership is at the Vineyard, or on an island off the coast of Maine. You can get a court any time. The weekends are especially slow. The pace picks up around Labor Day, and September is our second busiest month. (The busiest is June.)
Round Robin: A long-time club member who has played in many round robins reported that last week's was the best that he had ever played in, the most fun ever. Well, we'll try to equal that ecstatic experience with next week's round robin. We'll be trying on Tuesday, August 15. The night will feature tennis and pizza. Tennis starts at 6:00.
Solicitations: Any suggestions for the newspage? for the website? Send 'em in.
One member sent us an address of what looks to be a big, tennis site that you might take a look at. Here's a link.
Court Conditions: Closed for the day. The courts are soft and puddled up. (The day is dark and ambiguous here in Cambridge. Maybe it will clear. Maybe it will brighten up. Maybe it won't.) The situation does not look promising.

Website Note: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so's you can catch up on what you missed while you were visiting friends on the Vineyard or frolicking in Oblivia.
