Open Day April 4th started a good tennis season.
Although May and June were cool, the weather in July and August was hot.

Thanks to the following people for their organization;

Shenah for Monday night Ladies Doubles drop in
Bryan Lakusta for the Tuesday night Men’s and Thursday night Mixed Doubles events.
Judy, Diane and Yoko for the Wednesday morning Ladies Doubles
Rudy Hein for the Mon Wed and Fri Men’s Doubles mornings
Mike Ward for the Sunday morning tennis socials
Social convenors and volunteers for organizing the meals from the list with menus
Rosie for her tireless work for the tennis club – she has done wonders for the juniors

Executive meetings were productive – we had a successful year

Joe Moller of Lakeview Irrigation had planned to have some of the courts repaired, but this was postponed
due to the cold weather.
In late summer a children’s playground was installed right outside the door to the clubhouse.
It was requested to be moved to the area in front of the soccer field, but was moved only three feet further
into the parking lot.
In December 2010 the tennis facility may be taken over by the City of West Kelowna

Club Pro Report

Rosie thanked everyone for making the club a success.
There was a slow start to the season due to a cold spring.

Two pros from Global Fitness were hired. Joachim held 4 clinics and Greg Marchuk held 2 clinics that
were free for members and well attended early in the season.

Lakeview Open Tournament was held on the May long weekend.
There were late entries as usual, but there were 50 participants.

Junior Tournament was held at the end of June and hosted 40 participants.
This is a successful turnout as other local clubs in Summerland, Penticton, Vernon and the Mission did not
have this many kids.
Thanks go to the many helpers namely Johnny Vesterinin, Joe Schaich, Jerry Cass and Joan Galley.
Rosie took kids to the Vernon Club
Junior Program had 34 kids in the spring and 20 kids in the summer
A progressive court system using a smaller court and lower net was used.
Junior Social evenings were held on Fridays from 5 – 7 pm. This continued until September 25th.

Shenah organized the Mavis Cup for ladies in July. It was well attended.

In consultation with Mike Ward and John Bassett Smith, Anthea Booth proposed changes to the bylaws.
The 1993 Bylaws were posted on the website and on the bulletin board in the clubhouse for a one month
period prior to the Annual General Meeting.

Items for new executive;

Meeting proposed for the new executive for the Master Plan of Parks with City of West Kelowna.

Lighting for the courts
Conduits are in place for courts 1 and 2 and 7 and 8.

As these are public courts is a lease needed for the courts? We have club rights at the moment.

Margaret added that the courts will be locked by Lakeview Irrigation in mid November. Courts will be
available to club members after that, and the key for the courts will hang on the bulletin board.

John Grass spoke about the Table Tennis available to club members during the winter. The clubhouse will
be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5 pm and Saturday afternoons at 2 pm.

Motion was made by Tony that the meeting be adjourned at 1.50 pm.
