Fall fell hard on the club last week: players went indoors (ugh); the courts were empty at prime time (at prime time); the phones stopped ringing; people elegized the season; people inquired about the closing party, when lo! the temperature hit 80 degrees. The club is packed again. The phone never stops ringing. And what else loometh?
The Columbus Day Pick-up Doubles, Barbecue, Potluck Jamboree. Yesss. Monday, October 8. All day.
There is a potluck part to the party. Members are encouraged to bring some food and drink. Encouraged, now, not required.
Members whose last names begin with the letters A through G are encouraged to bring some fruit or fruit juice; H's through O's some dessert; and P's through Z's some salad. (David H. has his traditional exemption. David, please bring your usual wonderful confection.)
And cold weather is predicted. Wear some sweats. Bring a racquet.
Clinics: Rick Rose's doubles clinics are being held now on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Every week. Clinics run from 10:00 to 11:30.
Solicitations: We're always glad to hear from our readers.
|Here's a remarkable pencil drawing, a pencil drawing! of El Duque done by Ken Turnbull. We apologize for the loss of detail, Ken, and we thank you for sending it along.|
We are still talking about this year's tournaments. And we are still waiting for the The Mixed Doubles Finals which match is re-re-re-re-scheduled ('re' times 10 to the eighth) for Wednesday, October 10, at 6:00. (What tells us that the club will be rained out that day?) When it is (finally) played, someone might help us keep the results up to date by notifying Kathy.
Thanks to folks who have kindly called or e'd results.
Reservations Note: While the CTC website has the capacity to handle on-line reservations, the efficacy of deploying the system is still being debated by the tennis club Board. So, if you click on Reservation Requests, you can see the system, but it is not active.
