Marg is still not playing, although she is umpiring, which involves just moving along the side of the court. She hopes to resume playing next month. Anne has also resumed after being in Austria visiting family for some weeks, and she is a welcome addition. Jan and Dick have been away for some months, but we do hope to see them again soon. Gerry has brought both his grandchildren along on occasions, and young Jackson caught on really quickly, at 8 years of age. Even tiny Tasmin, at 3, was hopping into Rupert's exercise program with great enthusiasm, and it was lovely to watch.
Our times have changed now - everyone is encouraged to arrive at 9.45, ready to play at 10am on Mondays, before the temperature rises too quickly.
Our breakup lunch will be on December 8 this year, at the Golf Club, and if it is anything like last year, will be a wonderful way to conclude our year's program.
We will resume next year on February 1, beginning at 10 am.
Give us a try - you won't regret it!!
