Oracle December 2020


The Tennis Committee would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning tennis players. Even some of our Canadian friends have braved the trip south this year. That is a pleasant surprise. We are excited for our new gathering space between the breezeway and the LP pool area. The current tables seen in the pictures below are on loan from the ES pergola area. Our new tables and umbrellas are on order and should arrive sometime this month. Down the road we hope to get a BBQ, some serving tables and an Ice maker/dispenser for the area. We are off to a bit of a slow start as far as organized events go this season. As the committee wanted to meet first to ensure we came up with a plan for the safest way to proceed. Hence there was no November Horse Race. The draw is being held daily at 8:00 am at La Palma. All lev- els are encouraged to participate. The time of the draw will be moving to 09:00 am in December and January due to the colder weather. We have restarted the Tuesday Night Mixed Doubles play beginning at 4PM., with dinner following at Bella Roma. All levels are welcome for some fun tennis and socialization. We held our first Mixer (Halloweenie), hosted by the Tennis Committee on November 14. We had 32 in attendance. Free Tennis Clinics every Thursday from 2 pm— 4 pm at La Palma Courts 3 & 4. Contact Sparky at 707 - 497 - 9663. Due to current COVID precautions, the format was a bit different but fun was still had by all. There was a contest for the best decorated masks. We will be having a December Horse Race on Friday, December 4. Format and details are still being worked out. Check your email and the bulletin board for updates. The most important thing in these difficult times, is to be kind to each other! If someone is nervous and feels more comfortable wearing a mask when around others. Or wants to use their own balls when playing. Please respect their feel- ings. There is no place in our community for teasing or sham- ing our friends for doing what they need to do to protect themselves and their families during these unsettling and unprecedented times.
