***Parents and Players***
Boosters meeting on Sunday 3/9 at 5:00 pm at Fred Wells during the boys' practice. Please come and provide your input! If you are driving your kids to practice, please stay and meet other parents and discuss with us how we can support the team during the fast approaching season.
There was a huge turnout for last Sunday's practice and the captains are thrilled with the level of interest and commitment. We have been unable to reserve any additional courts this coming Sunday but are pleased to report that we have arranged to have a total of 4 courts available each of the following 2 Sundays, the final captains' practices. The season officially begins on Monday, March 24th, when the boys will start having practice every weekday immediately after school. It's unlikely this will be outdoor practice, so stay tuned for further info!

The Car Wash Fundraiser raised almost $1000! Special thanks to Kathy and Todd Siegfried! Most of us helped, in one way or another, to raise almost $1,000 in a single chilly afternoon, but these two are the car-wash fundraising pros who make it all happen seamlessly.
Varsity and JV Banquet May 28, 2013 @First Unitarian Mount Curve 6-8 Special thanks to Allison Capano Stevens for bookkeeping and party-planning; Cathy Anson for photography, arranging gifts, sending emails, and keeping the contact list; Ann Cazaban, Margeaux, and Marc for BBQ delivery and set up; George Puzak for name tags; and everyone who brought more food to round out the lineup! As Carl Vaughan said as he filled his plate, "This is so great-- it's a happy, happy night."
