Nominating Committee

We need a Nominating Committee to find officers who will begin in 2019.  The President's and Treasurer's terms will run from 2019-2020.  We also need a Secretary to replace Linda von Feldon, who is stepping down and whose term runs through the end of 2019.  If you are interested in being on the Nominating Committee, or in any of the available offices, contact Linda von Feldon, 520-300-6306 or

Drills with Ball Machine

If you want to practice your drop shot here is your chance.  Three 1-hour sessions working on only drop shots with the ball machine are offered this Friday August 24, 8-9 am,  9-10 am, 10-11 am.  Sessions are limited to 2 people each and the pair should be of similar skill level.  Sign up here.  

AED in Gatehouse 

We requested an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) as part of our capital equipment list.  The Finance Committee indicated that there is an AED available in the nearby Gatehouse.  If you think an AED is needed (or for any other emergency), call 911, then call Patrol (393-2941) and tell them the AED is needed.  Or, if it's faster, you can run over there and tell them.
