December Newsletter 2018
The Holiday Season is upon us and I hope everyone is able to get to the club! We are going to have quite the December as we will be in the process of a few fun projects! First, we will be starting the process of repainting the interior of the club. We will do it in sections but look for certain areas being blocked off while we paint. We will also be moving our strength stations from upstairs to downstairs while getting new equipment for the upstairs fitness. We will have new Matrix and Freemotion equipment throughout! We will also be adding a new flooring upstairs and new turf for the outside area. We hope everyone enjoys the new additions and I look forward to a fresh new look for 2019!!
We also hope that everyone can attend the Annual Holiday Party on December 7th. It is always a good time so please don't miss the action! Party starts at 5:00!
See Ya at the Club!

DECEMBER SWIMMER OF THE MONTH- Chris Perkins
How long have you been swimming? About 5 years.
What’s your favorite stroke? Freestyle
What’s your favorite distance/event? 300 meters
What was your most memorable achievement so far? When I started swimming, I wasn’t a good swimmer. I was physically in shape but I could only swim a few laps at a time. Now I swim repeats of 300m and I am surprised how fast I progressed.
Do you have a goal for this year? To try to get in the water more often, I’ve gotten a little bit of track and I’d like to be more consistent with swimming 3 to 4 times a week.
What’s your favorite workout? Alternating free, back, breast 300’s.
What else do you like to do? I cook, wine taste and hike.
What’s your favorite after-swim snack? I like to go get a big salad with lots of toppings from Westridge… with eggs and cheese and all kinds of stuff.

Hello Tennis Friends and welcome to December.
November saw our first couple of rain events for the year and while not conducive to tennis, it was really nice to see in addition to being a thorough court washing after the dry winds dusted up the place.
On November18th we hosted the Annual Turkey Trot and it was not a disappointment. It was an ideal autumn afternoon and a full compliment of 32 people combined to form 16 mixed doubles teams for round-robin play in two divisions. The finals saw Noelle and Torrey Evans take the top spot in a nail-biter over Susan and Jim Kasser. The Evans' opted for a nice bottle of wine as top prize and ceded the Butterball turkey to the Kassers.
Tennis Members: SAVE THE DATE!
Thursday Dec 20th late afternoon /early evening for a Christmas happy hour/mixer/potluck/white elephant gift exchange. More info to follow.
Happy Holidays to all of you.
