TPTA Board Meeting Notification & Call for RCO Volunteers

Hi,

You are invited to join us at the next TPTA board meeting on Sunday, June 23 at 12:30 PM at Glendoveer. The main topic of discussion will be the Rose City Open.

Please consider volunteering. Many hands make light work. The more people are willing to help out, the less there is to do for any one person. Last year’s post tournament survey results were very positive and will hopefully mean there will be an even better turnout this year. That is in large part due to those who gave some time, filled water jugs, enforced 5 min warm-up times, made a pizza run, allocated players to courts, etc. Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

New Surfaces for Glendoveer

The courts will receive new surfaces during the second half of October. For that reason we will either find a different location for the Sunday mixers on the 21st and 28th or cancel them altogether.

Annual Meeting and Officer Election

Dear TPTA Member,

At noon on Sunday, September 30 we will hold our annual meeting at Glendoveer. It is open to attendance by all TPTA participants, and we encourage you to come.

In the meeting we will have the officer election. If you enjoy the group, please think about potentially joining the board. It is a minimal time commitment, but crucial to keeping the association going.

Thank you.

March Madness is upon us and for those of you who like to fill out a bracket every year and root for your favorite college hoops team, TPTA has an opportunity for you! (Even if you know nothing about college basketball it is still a fun way to compete with your friends off of the tennis courts.)

This is a fundraiser for TPTA and also an opportunity for someone to win a little cash. Each entry costs $10 and you can enter up to 5 brackets. 50% of all the money collected will go to TPTA and then the 1st place winner receives 30% and 2nd place gets 20%.

Time is of the essence because the first round of games begin on Thursday March 15th. Here’s what you need to do in order to enter your bracket (s):

Go to PayPal and send $10 for each bracket (for example, if you enter 4 brackets send $40 to TPTA) before midnight on Wednesday March 14th. Use this email address for PayPal: teamportlandtennis@gmail.com

If you do not have PayPal, you can send a check made out to : “Team Portland Tennis Association” to this address: PO Box 28489, Portland, OR 97228

If you do this, your envelope must be postmarked by March 15th!

If you enter a bracket but do not pay your entry fee before the deadline above, then you are not eligible to win the prize money.

Go to the ESPN website to create an account so you can join our private group and fill out a bracket (it’s FREE to do this). Here are the instructions:

http://games.espn.com/tournament-challenge-brac…/…/en/story…

Once you have created an ESPN username and password you can join our group: “TPTA Tennis Group” and fill out up to 5 brackets. You must do this before early morning Thursday March 15th, once the first game begins (usually 8am) you will be locked out of the group and will not be able to enter your bracket. Here is the link to our group information:

http://games.espn.com/tournament-challenge-brac…/…/en/group…

Here is the important information you need to know to join our TPTA group:
Group: TPTA Tennis Group
Motto: Game Set Match
Group Password: rosecityopen

When you create a bracket (or multiple entries) please use FIRST & LAST names so we can identify the winners. And if you have multiple entries, then
add a 1, 2, 3, etc... at the end of your name. Examples of good bracket names:

“rogerfederer1” or “serenawilliams2”. Examples of what NOT to do:
“ilovetennis”, “sexytennisplayer1”, “anonymousbracket3”

Please share this with your tennis friends and family. The more people who enter, the more money we raise for TPTA and the bigger the earnings are for the winners!
