Hi Ladies,

Hope you are enjoying the summer as it is flying by.

Beginning August 1, sign up opens for the September event. The Round Robin is on Saturday, September 10. The A division will play from 8-10am. The B division will be from 10:15am to 12:15pm.

Don’t forget the August events and sign up quickly if you haven’t already. The Salad Bar Luncheon is Wednesday, August 3. Play will be from 9-11am followed by lunch in the park. The Tennis Under the Stars Tournaments are from 5-9pm on August 8,11,15 and 18. Check the website for details. Social time will follow at Harp & Fiddle which you can attend even if you are not playing.

Unfortunately, the August Tennis Clinic had to be cancelled as Matt is unable to get the required personnel to conduct it. We are looking into some other options and will keep you updated. The July clinic was well received and our thanks go to Lisa Fitzgibbon and Ellyn Ryan for organizing it.

Congratulations to the winners of the July Round Robin: A division-Jessica Moyer, B division was tied with Kristen Lay and Gail Wolf. Thanks to Wendy Varygiannes, Marell Kowalski and Mary Ellen Hanrahan for handling that tournament.

Just a reminder, when challenging, carefully check the dates of those who are turned over ahead of you. They must be valid on the day you make the challenge. Some may not have yet started at that time as they are posted ahead. Conversely, when you receive a challenge, check the ladder to be sure that the challenger is in a position to play you.

It’s great to see so many challenges being played.  However, some of you have yet to play any. If you have any questions about making challenges or using the directory, check the website or contact one of the board members.

You need 5 matches (2 of which must be singles if on both ladders) and 1 tournament to be a member in good standing. Also, there is an award for the highest number of MIGs points, one for a new member and one for a veteran member. You earn a point for every challenge and event you do.

We have an update from the Park District on the courts at Jaycee Park. They have experienced delays in the resurfacing project but expect to have them available at the end of August or the beginning of September. That can provide another location for matches.

Save the date: Saturday, October 1 will be our final event, the Harvest Moon Extravaganza at River Trails Tennis Center. Play will be from 6-8pm followed by the fall meeting and social time. Hope to see you on the courts at one of the events or open play.
