CTC news? hmmm.... We seem to be unusually busy, for July. The mornings are slow, but in the late afternoon and prime time it's hard to get a court. The Vineyard must be deserted.
We should be reporting on the news from Truro and P-Town (it was crowded and rowdy). We need reports, gentle readers. What's going on? How was the weekend? the Fourth? Tennis fireworks? Any food?
Summer Membership started on Monday, June 30. Summer Members are encouraged to come to round robins and Sunday pick-up doubles.
The draws for the tournaments are posted on the Special Tournament Bulletin Board inside the clubhouse. We can't get the draw up on the web because of technical difficulties. We'll get the draws posted here today or tomorrow, we hope.
The second round of the tournaments should be played by July 20, and the third by July 31.
Club Presidant, Dick Harter wrote a Spring letter to members. There's lots of news in it. Also, he quotes James Russell Lowell. We love the quoting.
|Club member, Charles Ansbacher will lead his Landmarks Ochestra 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.
Here's the saga of last year's tournaments:
Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.
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.)
