Clinics: Ever try one? Rick's clinics are a smash hit. Lately, he's had a nice mix of beginners and intermediates, members and guests, young and old. The clinics take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 11:30. Give it a try.
Many, many thanks to Kathy Komputerheroine, we have the tournament draws on-line. They are mostly up-to-date. You might help us keep the draws up to date by notifying Kathy of match results. (We won't post scores, just results.)
Thanks to folks who have kindly called or e'd results.

In the June 11 issue of the New Yorker, there's another nifty article by Malcolm Gladwell, the author of The Tipping Point, about, of all things, highway safety. (We just read anything he writes: he's one of those guys.) The article is entitled "Wrong Turn."
"Every two miles, the average driver makes four hundred observations, forty decisions, and one mistake. Once every five hundred miles, one of those mistakes leads to a near collision, and once every sixty-one thousand miles one of those mistakes leads to a crash. When people drive, in other words, mistakes are endemic and accidents inevitable...."
Help: As always, we welcome contributions to the news.

Take a look at what was going on at the club at this time last year.
