April Newsletter

Check out the new ATA web site!!!
Thanks to Dale Emmert for setting this up for us! This is a great place to get ATA info, so mark it as a favorite!

Court Status: City will be working with USTA to try to obtain additional grant monies for new courts. Things seem to be stalled out a little bit as there appears to be a hold-up regarding the exchange of land with the schools. No progress yet on desperate need for repair of old courts. John G and Grady met with Eric, the new Parks and Rec. Director, regarding the many needs of the old courts. ATA plans on making another presentation to the city commission in May, so watch for notices on this, and please support ATA in these endeavors.

ATA High School Scholarship will be awarded in May. Deadline for application is April 18. For more info contact Neil Bottger, John Genta, or AHS counseling office.

No April Play Day due to April tournament. Next Play day is scheduled for May 3rd, 9:00 a.m. and will be hosted by Diane and Lee Gustafson, so don’t miss it!
