|The Closing Party is scheduled for this Sunday, October 28, from 5:00 to 7:00. There will be nibbles and drinks and elegies for the past season, guffaws and laments for past games. There will be awards given out, speeches, jokes, anecdotes. Don't miss the last social function of the year. (Note, though, that the courts are open until mid-November.)|
And the staff? Billy will be around a bit this weekend, but on Sunday, sadly, he's playing a USTA tournament someplace far a-way and won't be at the party.
Phil had knee surgery two weeks ago and just started physical therapy. He's on one crutch of late, and won't be at the party.
Joe is in NYC for the weekend and won't be at the party.
So Gary Duggan and Tom Wassner will be manning the ship. We commend them to you. Work them out. Ask them trick questions about the rules. Ask for special dispensations.
Autumn Leaves, the chemistry of: Why do leaves change color? Find out here. (We found this item in the archives and it seemed like such fun, we are re-running it.)
Correspondents alert: Want to be a reporter? All you have to do is report.
We're still hearing about the Mixed Doubles Finals. Some drama. Some tennis. Congratulations, Jessie and Alexi.
Thanks to folks who have kindly called or e'd results.
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.
Take a look at what was going on at the club at this time last year. (More of that pernicious poetry that raised so many eyebrows last year.)

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 you can read the news pages for the whole year (2001). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the news.
