FROM: Sally & Barb

Hi Everyone! Can you believe another year has gone by? Sally and I are working on the 2006 event and wanted to touch base with you all. We couldn’t run this tournament without your help, and hope to see you again this year. So, please mark your calendars for these dates:

Tuesday, December 26, 2006 10:00am – 8:00pm Registration & Player Dinner
Wednesday, December 27, 2006 8:00am – 10:00pm (?) Play begins
Thursday, December 28, 2006 8:00am - 10:00pm (?) Matches continue
Friday, December 29, 2006 8:00am - 6:00pm Matches continue

We have a few things that are new for this year. First, we have a new logo created for us by Ron Cates. He has also generously offered to help us set up our very own website! We’ll let you know when it’s up and running, but if you would like to check out our USTA website, here is the link:

We have a new auxiliary site for the G18s in Mesa. It’s Monte Vista Resort, located at Baseline and Ellsworth. It’s a wonderful retirement community with beautiful courts and great facilities. They are very excited to have us and we are thrilled to be there. For those of you who work registration, we will be starting a little later this year. Registration will run from 12 – 5, so we won’t need you to start preparing until 10:00 am. Also new this year, we are hoping to have ball kids for all of the finals matches on January 1st. Some of the national championships do this and the players love it! We will need help with training and supervising the ball kids so, if you are interested, please indicate below.

We will be using Phoenix Tennis Center (B18), Scottsdale Ranch Park with additional courts at the Racquet Club at Scottsdale Ranch (B16), Gene Autry Sports Complex (G18) with additional courts at Monte Vista Resort, and Kiwanis Recreation Center(G16) with additional courts at Lifetime Fitness. Our tournament HQ will be the Fiesta Inn in Tempe, and Registration and the Player Dinner will be held there as well. All finals will be played at Scottsdale Ranch Park on January 1.

Please indicate your availability and where you would like to help and return to us either by mail at 7554 E. Desert Cove, Scottsdale 85260, fax at 480-483-0783, or email at Banshell@cox.net or BoilerSal@cox.net. We will contact you when we get closer to the tournament to confirm. You can always call us - 480-951-9695 (B) or 480-391-9239 (S) - with questions. If you know someone else who would like to help, please let us know. Thanks again for all your help. We are looking forward to putting the team together again!
