When the weather is as good as it's been lately, everything works the way it's supposed to: first step, bing, done, next step, bang, done. The clay is setting up and binding nicely. The curtains are rising, literally. Last year and the year before the crew never stopped fighting water. Work a day, rain a day. But this year, the sun shines down, all benevolent-like, and the crew is zooming along, whistling and smiling.
The crew started working on the courts on Monday, April 11. Opening day is usually 3-4 weeks from the start date, so we are hoping that we'll have some courts open by, maybe, the first weekend in May. Depending on the weather. Depending on the weather.
A Note on the club book: Right now, the club book is in the process of going to the printer. But we have up-to-date info here on the website. The Rules section, the Governors and Committees and Activities sections are current for 2005. We thank the committee heads for making the information available in such a timely fashion and we urge all public spirited readers to proof-read.
Take a look
We'll keep the tournament draws available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid:
And the previous tournaments:

Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.
And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggests a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.
The CTC book for 2005 is not yet available. The Activities page has been posted here on the website. The waiting list for membership is complete, but still includes folks accepted for membership this year until membership is finalized. That information can be found through the 'FAQ' page.
'Members', and' Reservation Requests' are not active parts of the site nowadays. 'Timelines' is for adepts.
The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2004. 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 (2004). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the newspage.
