Here's a dubious distinction: there are more visitors to the newspage lately than there are to the courts. (We know this because there is a counter on the bottom of the newspage: version means this particular newspage; series means this year's newspages. A big number, seems to us.)
And so, since there's not a lot happening on the courts or in the clubhouse, we'll take a look at the email-bag. And we'll rouse some of the newsroom noodlers and doodlers to respond.
Here we go:
- -How often is newspage updated?
We go with the fast-breaking stories. (Like the notice that Summer Members can play at primetime. Wow.) When we hear it, you read it. Otherwise, we usually put out two issues a week.
- -Whose eyes are we seeing? Do they all belong to the same person? It must be a club member, the famous X?
We are sworn to secrecy. If we divulged any info, even on eyes, our sources would clam up, we fear.
- -I've sent you many items that I thought might interest my fellow club members. Why haven't you printed any of them?
"Three priests go for a swim....?" Keep submitting, though. We laugh.
- -Where is the 'newsroom?' What's it like? Can I take a tour?
Imagine "The Front Page," or "His Gal Friday" - but slower, nerdier, computeristical, and...bookish. No tours. Watch a video of "His Gal Friday."
Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are "iffy" due to the change in weather. (Rick is game, but attendance has dropped off.) Please call the clubhouse if you are still interested.
When the clinics run, they run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 to 11:30 and cost $14.00.
|Summer members can book courts at prime time, but only 24 hours in advance. (Summer membership has been continued on a pay-as-you-play basis for the rest of the year.) Summer members should fill out a chit for themselves as guests.|
Here's the saga of last year's tournaments:
Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.
Take a look
Website Update: Members, and Reservation Requests are not active parts of the site nowadays. Timelines is not for civilians.
The Governors and committees page, the Activities page (round robins, tournaments, etc), and the Rules page have all been updated. We thank the folks who have kindly done some on-line proofreading. And we solicit any additional proofreading. Or comments. Or essays, rhapsodies, haiku, bulletins, rants, objections. Or praise. Especially items that we might actually put up on the page. Anonymity is assured.
The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2001. From there you can see the whole of the Persistent Archive of last year's news.
Website Note: The time and temperature icon below is a link to a Boston weather site.
Joe DeBassio, Webmaster
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 newspage.
The letters below will waft the clicker to a translation program, so that you can see these deathless words translated to wonderfully unidiomatic French, Italian, etc. (It's a toy. Some of us love toys, still, and some of us love to click.)
