Twenty-four players participated in the Hallowe'en Chunk-A-Punkin Poker Challenge on Saturday October 30th. Though we were indoors, it was a beautiful day and we enjoyed lots of socializing out in the sunshine between rounds. Babette Arnoldus, decorator extrordinaire, had the whole place spooked up with witches and skeletons and many donned tennis-friendly costumes in keeping with the season. We wrapped up the day with a fun skill event. Photos (kindly taken by Michael Powell and John de Bruyn) can be found here with a video by Michael here. Thanks to Chunk-A-Punkin operator and round 1 food provider Dave Youngson, Tournament Team members Tim Dubois, Jean Southgate, Dave Naphtali and Michael Gooblar, Assistant Tournament Director and round 2 food provider Mary Richardson and all those who contributed and assisted with this fun-only event.
The So Be It Spring 2021 Team Singles Tournament In-Slow-Motion was put into motion by Blair Clarley, Tournament Director, spurred originally by a suggestion from Mike Chin, who reported on a successful women's singles tournament early this year at the Salmon Arm Tennis Club.
