Tennis Club News

Tuesday, June 17, 2003



The draws for the tournaments will close on this coming Sunday, June 22. The Women's Singles and Women's Doubles tournaments will be cancelled if more women don't sign up. Please sign up now, or forever hold your peace.



Newspage Note: The newsroom is a bit chaotic lately, or, really, more than a bit. We've installed Mac OS 10.2 on the newsroom's workhorse computer, a G4, and many programs and files seemed to have....wandered. The newspage may be erratic for a while.

Billy Crusco again saved the day with his custom staircase from the gate. Our digital photo seems a bit distorted:



We're trying to quit talking about the weather, but we're still receiving e's and comments:

There's something sulphuric in all that rain. It smells bad. And there's a high-tide mark on the courts. And scum.

and another CTC member:

Something is moving in those puddles. Some kind of being. I saw it.

and another CTC member:

The rain is all over now. I'm leaving for the Vineyard this weekend.


The next round robin is scheduled for Thursday, June 26. The meal will be pizza. Tennis starts at 6:00. There will be no rain.


Club member, Charles Ansbacher will lead his Landmarks Orchestra in a series of free concerts again this year. Check out the website for info and a schedule.

Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are up and running. They have been scheduled, between drops and torrents and cataracts, for Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Check them out.



Take a look

at what was happening at the club at this time last year. (Jokes were happening.)





Here's the saga of last year's tournaments:



Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

And here's a link to the official French Open site. (Bud Collins referred to the two women finalists as "Brussel sprouts." Really. He did.)


The CTC book is hot off the presses and all members should have a copy by now.

The information in the book may also be found here on the website. The information is current. The 'Activities' page (round robins, tournaments, etc) has been updated, i.e., the schedule of events for 2003 can be found on the website. Also, the waiting list for membership, as well as a list of new members has been updated. That information can be found through the 'FAQ' page. The 'Governors and Committees' page, and the 'Rules' page have been updated.

'Members', and' Reservation Requests' are not active parts of the site nowadays. 'Timelines' is for adepts.

We thank our on-line proofreaders and contributors to the effort to update the website, most especially Lucy Fowler whose help is, as always, much appreciated.


The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2002. From there you can see the whole of the Persistant Archive of last year's news.

Website Note: The time and temperature icon below is a link to a Boston weather site.

Website Note II: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so that you can read the news pages for the whole year (2001). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the newspage.

The letters below will waft the clicker to a translation program, so that you can see these deathless words translated to wonderfully unidiomatic French, Italian, etc. (You can use this program to translate web-pages other than the newspage.)
