Winter, winter

Some winter we're having. The Skating Club has had 42 days of skating so far, and we may still be counting.

In spite of the weather and the predicted foot of snow, you should by all means necessary, make it to:

The annual Opening Party and Meeting, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Eat, drink, and see old pals. Find out who the new officers and governors will be. Discuss important issues. Hear reports. And did we say, eat and drink?

"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.)

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.
