ANNOUNCEMENTS

The new courts are expected to be finished in two weeks.  People are encouraged to ride their bikes or take their golf carts to the new courts to play.  For the time being there will be no water, shade, restrooms or parking at the new location.

Dale Miller reported to the club that Craig Ahlstrom said that the club would not have to pay $20,000 towards the building of the new courts.  When you see Craig, please give him a “big” Thank You!

Bill Smaha suggested that the club buy 2 flagpoles and install them at the court and fly both an American flag and a Canadian flag.

Three new AED’s are needed at the new San Tan Facility.  We are hoping that Bingo will furnish these as they have in the past.

Captains are to have their report to Dale Miller by March 14, 2012, on move up’s, number of players for league, number of players for social and level of play on team.

Ballroom will be empty next week (Friday, March 16).  Everything will go to storage to make room for our tournament.

No block out time for play next week.  Remember that SVE can use our courts in case of rain.

Each team needs to have a coordinator for their team and report to Terry Garrett as to how many courts you will need for round robin.  Only 4 courts are available for round robins.

Next General Meeting will be October 3, 2012 at 3:30 P.M.  Doors will open at 3:00 P.M. before the meeting so you can pay your dues and socialize.

 

COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR

Signup sheets for all 12 courts will be at the present courts.

 

Doug Korver is asking the 3.5 teams to do a little bonding, by washing courts on March 15, at 2 P.M.

Kathy Olmscheid thanked Nancy Bradshaw, Sharon Darr, Doris Hall and Donita Wark for keeping the Bulletin Board looking neat and attractive.  Please contact one of these ladies if you would like to have something placed on the board.

Cathy Idso reminded the club that the Monte Vista 8 person team will start March 25, 2012.

Dale has been on the lookout for the “Bulletin Board Bully”. If caught there will be no more tennis at SSV for you for one year.  Please stop writing on the board and be kind to each other.

 

Respectfully yours,
