Firstly, I wanted to say hi to everyone, particularly those that have joined somewhat recently. I am really glad people are finding this little idea of a tennis club/group to be a good idea!! I started this because I found it very hard to find anyone who knows how to play tennis! But, anyway, I really am glad people are liking it and I hope you all continue to enjoy and use the club.
Also though, I have to say, obviously I have been extremely delinquent. Thanks very much to Helen and a few others that have stepped in and helped lead this group. With a challenging job and 2 young kids I have found all of a sudden I don't have much time. Hopefully next summer I can get out a bit now that our youngest is 2 yrs old!
On the admin side - I have currently been paying the $19/mth meetup fee myself for the last couple of years. For 2010, Helen collected some $$ thanks and I have that now. For 2011 and 2012/beyond, I'd like to arrange something that is easy for all of us but doesn't have me paying the total fee. I am open to ideas. But again, it's not a lot of money so I am not looking to profit or anything like that - just cover costs. I know some clubs have done something where membership is $2 to $10 per yr depending on the number of active members. I see we have near 100 members but am thinking it's likely 20 to 50ish active to semi-active players. I am open to ideas and again, want to make it simple. If we want to do paypal; i can do that although realize not everyone may have/use paypal.
Let me know if any good suggestions on how to handle the $$.
Helen and Frank are working on finding a venue for us to play indoors during the cold season. They will let us know where, when and how much to pay.
I'm ready to play with whoever will be available.
Thanks again, hope you have a great Christmas period, a good winter (as good as it can be!!) and hope to see some of you next spring.
