Boy oh boy, are we under water. The courts are, say, fifty percent under water. Haft-drowned. Billy came in during the storm and installed a back-up pump.
The spikes holding the curtains down came up in places and the curtains are flapping in the wind. A bit of a set-back here.
But are we discouraged? No way. We have pumps, we have hammers. We'll get at it as soon as the flood subsides. Where's that sun?
A Birthday of Note:Though some scholars dispute the date, we believe that Shakespeare's birthday was on this date in 1564. Dispute a-way, oh scholars: we're celebrating.
A note from our web designer.
Now that the crew has rebuilt our wonderful courts, the web site faces its greatest challenge, our PILOT STUDY to display court reservations every day - without any added burden on our club staff.
It won't be as exhausting as shaping sixteen tons of clay into a level playing field, but it will not be easy. If you want to help us, take a look at the RESERVATION REQUESTS link to the left.
The asterisk indicates an empty court.
Clicking on it (in the real "timeLines" window) let's you send in a request for that court time.
N.B. Please report any difficulties you are having to Bob Doyle. Don't assume that it's your problem. It's our problem if the web site does not work for you.
All members are welcome to come to my lab at 77 Huron Avenue (a big red three-decker - three houses in from the fire station at Garden Street) Thursday evenings at 7:30. We'll have a hands-on tutorial using the web site, and talk about getting on the web in general.
Court conditions: Frightening to see.
Joe DeBassio, Webmaster.
