Are we open? What will happen on Monday?
We have been open off and on. We were closed all day Sunday. The mist and drizzle has been keeping the courts very soft. The party on Monday is going to happen rain or shine. The food (turkey, burgers, dogs, and the makings for chocolate chip cookies) has been bought and delivered and piled cornucopially all around the clubhouse kitchen counter.
The CTC Memorial Day Extravaganza will take place on Monday, May 28. It features all day pick-up doubles, grilled food, beer and soft drinks, and monumental amounts of tennis. (You play some doubles, you have a burger, you play some more doubles, you have a beer, you play some more, you have a hotdog, you hang on the porch, yakking a-way, you play some more.) There is a pot-luck aspect to the fete. We suggest that if your last name begins with the letters A through G, you might bring some salad; if G through O, some fruit or fruit juice; if P through Z, some desserts. As usual, the club will supply the basic necessities: burgers, dogs, veggie burgers (if we remember), a turkey (if we can find one), sodas, and beers (be-ahs). And
The last round robin was cancelled due to rain, so you didn't miss much, but the next one will be a corker. It is scheduled, or rather, re-scheduled for Wednesday, June 7. It will be a catered affair. (Don't we love that sentence.) Tennis starts at 6:00.
Tournament Note: You still have an opportunity to sign up for the club tournaments. The sign-up sheets are on the porch bulletin board.
Reservations Note: While the CTC website has the capacity to handle on-line reservations, the efficacy of deploying the system is still being debated by the tennis club Board. So, if you click on Reservation Requests, you can see the system, but it is not active. Stay posted.
Take a look at what was going on at the club at this time last year.

Court Conditions: Better than all our rivals except the two best courts at Braeburn.
