News of the week in review! For any of you who missed any of our features, here's a reprise of highlights.
From last Wednesday:
-Sixteen tons and what do you get? sang good old Tennessee Ernie Ford.
Sixteen tons of clay were delivered to the CTC yesterday. Billy built a dandy chute over the garden. The flatbed truck loaded with clay pulled up alongside the fence on Willard St. The clay comes in mountains of eighty pound bags. Two guys from the crew climbed up on the bed of the truck and threw the clay onto the chute. Three guys caught the bags down below and stacked them on pallets. Bob Doyle filmed some of the action.
Sixteen tons and what do you get? Great clay courts, some day soon.
A source reports:
Soon the buildings and grounds committee led by Sarah Jolliffe and Sally Ames will have their annual "walk about" with the Skating Club and Tennis Club presidents T.K. McClintock and Susan Miller-Havens. They will review with our manager Billy such things as trees that need to be trimmed, building repairs, garden supplies, bathroom renovation, the new drinking water system, the kitchen exhaust fan, and whatever else they stumble upon at 7:30 a.m.
New fence ready to go.
The new fence is taller than the old, and capped.
Skating Club President T.K.McClintock checks it out with contractor George Spartichino.
Court conditions: Less mud
