Arranged Pairs/Mixed Doubles Tournament: The finals of the tournament were held last Sunday. David Haskel and Rosalie Hornblower defeated Kevin McDevitt and Yvonne McQuilken in three fierce sets. David and Rosalie emerged from a tough field as the club champs of this new event. Congratulations.Here's a link to the draw. (The draw itself was done in Java by our mysterious, anonymous friend. Thanks again, Anon.)
Security Alert: A member's purse was stolen at the club on Tuesday morning in spite of the fact that the club was quite busy. So, we advise caution in leaving valuables lying about. The purse was later found in a dumpster behind Copley Plaza and returned to the owner, minus the money. Be alert: the jungle encroacheth.Some flowers in the club's garden.
