June Play Day

June PLAY DAY is set for this Saturday, June 2nd, at the Cloudcroft tennis courts with play starting at 9:30.  Please bring along chairs (as there is no seating available there), sunscreen, and plenty of water.  We will be playing in the cool mountains at 9000 feet elevation, so you might want a light jacket. We'll be using USED tennis balls because of the elevation. After play, everyone is invited to the Genta's cabin for lunch.

There are lots of activities that weekend (Rails to Trails stations, an organized run, etc.), so feel free to just come for lunch if that fits your schedule better.  A map to Genta's cabin will be available at play day (its just a few minutes drive from the Cloudcroft courts), or call Evelyn or John.  

Hope to see you then!!!
