A Word from the General Manager
Wow! September was a great month. Brad is in the process of wrapping up the 13th Annual
Senior Women’s Classic Tennis Tournament, which brought ladies from all over the country
out to compete for some great causes. It was great to see such great tennis and the members
loved watching! Fridays are fantastic, with World Team Tennis, Dive in Movies, and Poker
making this the place to be. We also had a Back to School Bash for children to play tennis,
and enjoy some carnival games for prizes before showing a movie by the pool.

The holidays are just around the corner, and we will offer holiday parties for our member        Desi McBride
businesses. Give Marisa a call and she will be happy to help you set up your holiday party.

Membership is going great thanks to all of the fantastic events we have had at the club
recently. The Paseo Club offers so much from the beginner tennis player to the hard core
fitness person. Families enjoy a day at the pool or one of our very exciting socials that are
run by our great staff. We recently had a Back to School Bash that was FREE to members
and their guests! We had over 300 people attend and the kids had a great time playing
tennis, games, moon bounce and Dive in Movie. One of our members, Nate Butcher said,
“… my son Garrett thinks the Paseo Club is like Disneyland…” I thought that was one of
the greatest comments I have heard in a long time. We also had World Team Tennis for the
competitive tennis player the same night. It was great seeing adults and kids all enjoying      Steve McAvoy
the club at the same time!

That is why all of you recommend the club to your families, friends and neighbors! Desi and myself really
appreciate all of your referrals so once again we are continuing our monthly referral program for the month of

During the month of October anyone that refers their friends to join during the month of October will receive
next month’s dues FREE!!! Please make sure your friend tells the sales staff that they received your recommen-
dation. Please note that the free month’s dues offer is not valid if your friend joins with a special coupon offer.
We can only honor one special offer per membership.

Stephen McAvoy, Marketing Director and Owner
The Paseo Club’s Tennis Program
Dear Members,
         This past month The Paseo Club hosted the 13th Annual Senior Women’s Classic presented
by Coffee-Mate. Without getting into too much detail on the tournament, I would like to say a
special thank you to all the tournament volunteers that put in hours of work to make the tournament
happen. During the event, the most compliments seem to go towards the volunteer staff on their
hospitality and welcoming nature to players.                                                                Brad Sceney
        September also concluded the Adult Mixed Doubles Championships. The winners of the tournament were as
follows: 8.5 Division- Jane/Mike Pascoe, 7.5 Division-Holly/Gary Cardinali and 6.5 Division- Lori/Dan Hermelin.
Congratulations not only to the winners but also to all competitors on some great matches. I have asked all competitors
whether they like the one weekend format or scheduling your own match format. I welcome any input from all members.

        October is the month of Junior Club Championships. This will take place on October 14th and 15th. Entries will be
available online or at the Front Desk. Divisions will be Tournament Training (18/u and 14/u) and Challenger level. All
events will be divided by a boys and girls division.

         I would also like to welcome Coach KP (Kenny Puvogel) to The Paseo Club. Coach KP has been teaching tennis up
in the Santa Clarita Valley for many years and we are happy to welcome him to The Paseo Club. He is available for lessons
on Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.

       Darren Miller (former Tennis Director) is now the proud father of Rylan Miller. Rylan was born in late August.
Congratulations to Darren and Lisa on their first child. Looks like another tennis champion is on the horizon.

See you on the Courts

Events & Activities
School is in full swing and so is the football season. September got a new great tradition
started - Monday Night Football and Brian’s Buffalo Wings. I have enjoyed each hanging
out and getting rowdy with members like Cyndi Lesinski, Todd and Gay Johnson and the
entire Damiani family. If you really want to see the football fan in me come by on October
23rd when my Cowboys play the NY Giants…but you can only roote on my team (wink).
In September we saw the last of one of our summer club favorites, Pool Holiday
Parties…sniff sniff, but thank you to all the families who came out to dine, swim, hula
hoop and balloon toss. The games left the whole staff with great memories. What can I
say about our Back to School Bash other than …so much fun! Thanks to all of our raffle
helpers and congratulations to all the prize winners.                                            Marisa Cordola
With Fall officially here, this means it’s time for 2 of The Paseo Club’s favorite events. For the adults, we will be
hosting our annual Oktoberfest Eat and Drink on Friday October 13th at 7:00pm. This year we are adding some
tennis on at the beginning, so make sure you build up an appetite. If all you’re out to do is eat and drink up a
storm, that is fine, too. We will be serving pub food and playing some pub games in the tent. For the kids, we
will be hosting our Annual Halloween Carnival on Friday October 27th at 6:00pm. Bring the kids all dressed for
the costume contest and to play some spooky carnival games. This year are incorporating a Cupcake Swap. We
are asking members to bring cupcakes to be shared with fellow members…everyone will get one (or two) before
they go home. This month will wind down our Movies Under The Stars. The last couple of shows will be
October 6th – A Bug’s Life (G), October 13th – Nanny McPhee (PG), October 20th - Escape from Witch Mountain (G)
and October 27th – Hocus Pocus (PG). Don’t forget to come by the Loggia on Monday Nights and enjoy some of
Brian’s Wings, some good football and $2 draft beers.

In November we will be hosting:
    •    Paseo Poker Tournament – November 10th at 7:00pm
    •    Monday Night Football – Every Monday at 5:30pm
    •    3rd Annual Anniversary Formal Dinner and Dancing
         – November 11th at 6:30pm
