Can You Smell that BBQ?
We’re looking forward to seeing lots of our members out at the end-of-season party this coming Saturday, November 19th! It’s going to be a great crowd (over 70 people signed up - despite rolling eyes at this outlandish plan to have a country-style evening). THANK YOU! Anita has organised an amazing, delicious, mouth-watering BBQ meal of pulled pork and brisket, and great country-style sides (from a new hopping BBQ place: Adamson BBQ - click for the Toronto Life article). And for our members who’ve told us you’d prefer a vegetarian option - we’ve a delicious main (please be sure to let the servers know that’s your preference).
Everyone gets a beer or wine on the house to loosen up those two left feet and non-alchoholic drink options are available too.
The fun starts at 6:15pm (dinner served at 6:30pm) at the Community Hall at Lawrence Park Community Church, 2150 Bayview Avenue (on the north corner of Dawlish Avenue and Bayview Avenue). And as a reminder, there is free parking at LPCC and lots more on the north side of Dawlish Avenue or paid parking at the Green P lot across the road.
Please bring your wallet - if you’ve not pre-paid for your ticket, the entry is $10 ($25 for guests) which includes a drink (additional wine and beer also available for purchase at $5 each).
The food is ordered, the musicians are tuning up, it’s going to be a party!  Can’t wait to see you there (and if your plans have changed and you now can - or, oh no, cannot - make it, please send us an email at so we can adjust quantities).

Early Bird Luncheon
A flock of roughly 30 Early Birders alighted on Amore Restaurant in November for a celebratory lunch. It was a chance to toast the end of a great summer tennis season and to thank those who made it possible this year: Gwen Sutherland, assisted by Marion Wulffhart, Carole Ambrose, Zilla Soriano and Tony Ercolani.  It was a somewhat raucous gathering, but it certainly appeared that a good time was had by all before departing for their winter activities.

Court Closing 
We had a wonderful day to prepare the courts for winter.  The lines were picked up and the nails removed, the nets taken down, the wind screen taken down and the leaves picked up.  Among others thanks to Caroline Gray, Saul Organ, Raza Ali, Anna Canton, Mark Girdler, Margaret Hawkins, James Carman, Fiona Miller, Irina Klenkin, Janet Blair, Myra Mandel,Carole Ambrose, Wendy Moore, Peter Dean, Sam Soriano,and Henry Joseph.  

It was a little sad to close the club when the weather was so nice, but the work had to be done so the net posts on courts 1 and 3 could be repaired.  We eagerly await spring to see the benefit from all the hard work put in by the crew.
