Columbus Day Potluck/Pick-up Doubles/Barbecue/Bonanza: On Monday, October 9, the club will host an all-day pick-up doubles tennis and feasting extravaganza. The club will supply barbecue basics: hot dogs and burgers and drinks of various sorts. There is also a potluck feature. Suggestions for what to bring:
If your last name begins with the letter A through G, you might bring some dessert;
if H through O, some salad;
if P through Z, some fruit.
Are we busy? The courts are off and on busy and empty. Sometimes we're packed, sometimes empty. You can see for yourself if you take a look at the days in question - Today's Reservation Requests, and tomorrow's (which pages are not entirely up to date).
Doesn't it seem that these days are too beautiful to pass up? that even if you didn't play tennis, you'd want to on days like these?
Some comments by players:
-It's so beautiful out that I don't care if the ball goes in.
-These are the best days of the year, and this place, this place...is perfect.
-There's no one here. What's going on? It's like when I was a kid: I was walking down the street with whatever ball was in season, football, baseball, basketball, looking for someone to play. And no one came out to play.
Court Conditions: Just wonderful.
