Wash DC area players -- Tournament to Benefit Katrina Relief Aid

Sorry for cluttering up GM with this but we've asked and asked for a "Players" forum.

Anyhow, many USTA local chapters are sponsoring events to benefit the Katrina Relief Fund. Here's the one for the Washington, DC area.

Katrina Relief Fundraising Tennis Event -- Reston, VA

So if you're a player, please check your local websites or Tennislink for a tournament near you. Some are "rated", others aren't...but they're small one day events and offer a great chance to meet other tennis players/instructors from your area and contribute to a worthy cause.

I love my girls.

That seems pretty cool, I don't think it would be too competitive or anything since it doesn't seem to show a rating there. Too bad I'm already goin to a hurricane benefit thing in Annapolis that day...

Re: Wash DC area players -- Tournament to Benefit Katrina Relief Aid

Yeah, the DC one looks a bit more relaxed than what they're doing here in Richmond. The Country Club of Virginia is hosting the event and it's a sanctioned tourney. Still, I thought some of y'all out there might be interested. I actually prefer the smaller round robin kind of things anyway...especially for this fundraiser kind of deals.

Check out this place....



As a bit of an aside story, CCV (as it's known around here) hasn't always had the best "race" relations and reportedly denied membership to a young, prominent...and black attorney named L. Douglas Wilder.

Well, a few years passed, and Mr Wilder ran for, and become Virginia's first black governor. CCV has had a long standing practice of extending lifetime memberships to our governors...and, guess what, had to offer one to The Honorable L. Douglas Wilder.

The rumor still circulates...that he turned them down.

While Doug Wilder is no longer governor, he was recently elected Mayor of Richmond.

I love my girls.

That's a funny story, guess he got his revenge...

I'm going to rest my knee up, I'm playing on the red clay at College Park with a friend in two weeks.
