Nominating Committee Held First Meeting
The nominating committee met at the Quail Inn on August 14 to begin the process of vetting candidates for open OTC Board offices for next year. This year’s committee members are Grace Barner, Olivia Kinzler, Doug Smith, Claire Tosio, and Bob Zemore. They will determine the slate of officers to be presented and voted on during the annual meeting. We thank them for volunteering their time to take on this important task. Anyone with suggestions or interest in serving as a board member should contact one of them.
October 11 is the Fall Membership Meeting
The OTC will get to try out the revamped East Rec center when we meet for the annual election of officers. The club reserved the center from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11; the meeting will include dinner, and members can bring their own alcoholic beverages. More information will be forthcoming, but remember we need as many members as possible to participate as we determine who will lead the club in the upcoming year.
We have had sixteen new members join this year, so if you or someone you know is interested in joining the tennis club, contact Jon or Joan Kline to sign up before the meeting. This is a great opportunity to get to know fellow OTC members.
Holiday and Awards Dinner Dance Date Set
Our year end blow out, the Holiday and Awards Dinner will take place in the Berger Center on Friday, November 15 from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. Live music and dinner will be provided, as we honor members who have made particular contributions to the ongoing mission of the tennis club. Make sure you don’t overbook yourself on that date; you won’t want to miss this party.
September is for Men’s Doubles
Gentlemen, time to show your friends who’s boss. Find a partner for the Men’s Doubles competition on the West Courts at 8:30 on September 14. Registration is open now on the OTC website or by contacting Edilberto Loaiza at email@example.com or 914-907-7192. This is one of the few OTC meets which is not team oriented. Players who don’t sign up with a partner will be paired with another player at their level by the tennis event coordinator. But, if you have a favorite doubles partner, sign up together and see if you can claim the title of 2019 Men’s Doubles champions!
Women’s Doubles Meet is Coming Soon
Ladies, start thinking about partners for the Women’s Doubles Tennis Tournament set for Saturday, October 5 at 8:30 on the West Courts. Keep the date open, and watch for the sign-up sheet to open on the OTC website or contact Ed Loaiza at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
