A Sad Note: Longtime CTC member, Thomas M. Marrill died on Tuesday, August 22. Condolences to his family.
U.S. Open: Interested in stats and side stories? Pictures? Here's a link to the official site.
Here's another site for the Open. We are told that this site has more info and less blather: Sportsline.
Here's a link to a big tennis site that you might take a look at. Tennis Server has a column by Ron Waite called Turbo Tennis. Click on Waite's 'Current Column' and if you like what you see, click on the 'Turbo Tennis Archive' on the left-hand column.
Want to be invisible? Check out the new Members section of the CTC website. All information on members is invisible EVEN WITH A PASSWORD. But, if you want club members to be able to find your telephone number or, dare we say it, your email address, you can edit your personal information, make visible whatever you want by checking a box. What fun! Or keep everything invisible. Give it a look. (Next week we'll experiment with flight.)
The courts need the rain. We used negligible amounts of calcium chloride this year so we dried out nicely after the many rains, but now that the weather is dry so are the courts. The courts are watered twice a day, but we need a little bit of rain now and then to give them a good soaking.
Court Conditions: Very, very good.
The time and temperature icon is a link to a Boston weather site. Give it a click.

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. The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to yesterday's page.
