Saturday, July 29
Courts: Where have they been? Underwater. Way underwater. (Thank goodness for the technology of the sump pump. Or the technology of a whole lot of sump pumps, artfully arranged.)
Security Alert: A member's purse was stolen at the club on Tuesday morning in spite of the fact that the club was quite busy. We advise caution in leaving valuables lying about. The purse was later found in a dumpster behind Copley Plaza and returned to the owner, minus the money. Be alert: the jungle encroacheth.
Member/Guest Round Robin: The next member/guest round robin is scheduled for Saturday, August 5 from 12:00 to 3:00. The sign-up sheet is on the porch bulletin board and there's still plenty of room.
Arranged Pairs/Mixed Doubles Tournament: The finals of the tournament were held last Sunday. David Haskell and Rosalie Hornblower defeated Kevin McDevitt and Yvonne McQuilken in three fierce sets. David and Rosalie emerged from a tough field as the club champs of this new event. Congratulations.Here's a link to the draw. (The draw itself was done in Java by our mysterious, anonymous friend. Thanks again, Anon.)
Ratings: Did you miss being rated? Here's a link to our FAQ on how tennis ratings work, and another link explaining the different levels, for those of us who don't know what a 3.5 player is.
Court Conditions: Courts 1,2,3, and 4 are open and good. Court 5 is open, but just barely. The floods have receded and now we have some sun and some dew. (Dew is from heaven, we are told.)
