    To all CVTC members,

    Below is a brief write up on Indoor Recreation Facilities Master Plan from the CVRD website. I just completed the short online survey & I put down indoor tennis facility as my top pick for "Planning for the Future". If you feel the same way, please click on the link below & tell CVRD you also want to see indoor tennis facility in their planning for the future.

    Cheers

    Tony

    CVRD Website

    The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has commenced the development of an Indoor Recreation Facilities Master Plan that looks at the long term future of the region in the context of its changing environment, demography, emerging priorities and needs for indoor recreation facilities and spaces. The Master Plan will serve as a guiding document for the Comox Valley sports centre commission and the staff and board of directors of the CVRD providing high level strategic direction, identification of priorities, and tactical recommendations for implementation.

    In order to ensure that all members of the community are heard, please take the time to complete the short online survey (see link below).

    Happy New Year.

    Just received update from Marion & Pat, the courts at Anderton are icy. They are currently at the club house so please feel free to drop by the club house.

    Due to icy courts, no tennis until conditions improve.

    Tony.

    The  August TGIF was a huge success with approximately  forty players attending some of whom were new  or visitors to the club. Food and desert was of course up to the usual standard but the big addition was a massive stuffed pasta dish supplied by Roberta Tura. Everyone commented on this dish - thanks Roberta for your thoughtfulness!

    Thanks to Mike Gould for donating a bicycle to the Canada Day draw on behalf of the club. As the photo shows, a young fellow named Logan had a great Canada Day thanks to Mike "Santa with Shades".

    " The Comox Valley Tennis Club hosted the first Friday evening tennis for new members last evening and it was a great success. The event started at 5:00 PM and all six courts were put to good use. The new members of the club had the opportunity to meet and play with other new members plus interact with several not so new members of the club. Many thanks to Annette Mayo who played a key role in working with everyone and encouraging participation in the leagues, Pat McGrath who demonstrated the ball machine, Marion McGrath who made the delicious popcorn and the wonderful enthusiasm and participation of Shirley Kirk, Sheila Ives, Marilyn Peeters, Dawn Christian, Gillian Northwood and Susan Bosveld-Bowyer.. We couldn't have done it without these member volunteers.

    These Friday evening events will continue until the end of April so the invitation is out once again to all new members and any other members of the club who would like to join in. 5:00 PM at the Anderton Courts in Comox and of course more popcorn! "

    Mother nature was kind to us on the 2nd day of 2016, while the east coast was hit by more snow, we (the 35 +) keen tennis players were out on the courts.

    No one suffered frost bite but there were several questionable line calls. 

    As always, Marion & Pat put on wonderful food - homemade soup & bread and various other goodies.  An excellent way to kick off 2016!

    The 2015 Comox Valley Tennis Club Xmas Party was held on Dec. 11th and was a great success, with 72 members and guests attending.  D'Esterre house in Comox was the venue, and it was ideal - so much so that we plan to rebook it for the 2016 Xmas party. Approximately $200 worth of food was collected and donated to the foodbank.

    The food/drinks were excellent, as was the music.  Many thanks to the organizers, volunteers, and attendees for a fun night of dining and dancing:



    Some of the guests (while still sober)

     


    More guests (no longer sober)

     


    Susan Bosveld-Bowyer did an excellent job obtaining gifts from sponsors (over half the attendees received gifts)


     


    Brenda Dean rocks on the dance floor (as well as the courts)

     

    Pat and Marion McGrath did a superb job organizing the food (as they always do)
