And a Good Time Was Had By All!

In keeping with the OTC’s most infamous traditions, the 2019 Social Calendar was closed with the annual OTC Dinner Dance and Awards Ceremony at the Berger. This year’s party had a British theme. Guests were greeted with scrumptious appetizers of fish and chips, bangers and mash, and toad in the hole for starters followed by a main course of delicious shepherd’s pie, salad, and yummy chocolate mousse cake for desert. Live music was provided Hey Jude, a Beatles tribute band that had the dance floor packed with OTC members and nonmembers alike. “I had always heard that the OTC gave the best parties. Now I know it’s true!” saidMicki Sabourin, who attended as a guest.Thanks to all who worked so hard to put on a smashing event!

Michael Gough Receives the OTC Roll of Honor Award

During the OTC Dinner/Dance, President Jon Kline and President-Elect Terri Somers presented Michael Gough with the OTC Roll of Honor Award following Cinda Gough’s tribute to Michael’s years of volunteerism in support of the Oakmont Tennis Club. This is the club’s most prestigious award and is not given every year. It recognizes substantial service to and positive impact on the club over many years. Michael humbly stated that he was very moved by this honor–that he had only two honors in his life: one being married to Cinda and the other receiving this recognition. Michael conceived of a favorite annual event, Woods and Whites, and, with Cinda, ran this event for many years. He served as OTC President in 2011 and 2012 and, then, as court maintenance chair for a number of years. Over this time he fostered a positive environment and experience for Oakmont tennis players, and represented the club’s best interests to the OVA. Thank you Michael!
