Yup, time must have a stop. The deadline for submitting your responses to the new Survey has been extended to Tuesday, March 18. (Previously, we mistakenly said that the survey deadline was extended to March 21. The deadline is March 18.)

Responding to the survey is really, really important. The folks who make decisions will make them on the basis of the survey.

 

The club's opening meeting and party was awash with issues and, as usual, with wonderful food and (warring) wines. (Warring wines? See Lennie. Issues? Stay tuned.)

 


 

The club book should be in your hands always. Much of the information in the book is updated and available on the website.

Some useful links:

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

And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggested a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.

We still have the tournament draws (from 2001 to 2004) available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid. We are re-locating the links, however.

 


 

"On the court, tennis players exchange not only ground strokes but lots of information. It's a richly interactive sport, both verbally and non-verbally. If players communicate clearly, simply, and consistently, the game will proceed more quickly, and with less fuss and misunderstanding. Here are a few guidelines that can make the game more fun, friendly, and fair for all...."

We've had some requests to run Craig Lambert's piece, sampled above, on Tennis Communication. (We'd better leave this link up on the newspage permanently.)

 

 

Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2007 (the animation, the Billy tribute, etc. From there you can see the whole of the Persistent Archive of last year's news.

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 said clicker can read the news pages for the whole year (2006). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take clickers to the previous issue of this year's newspage. (Skywriter is for Initiates.)
