Our lost and found is getting kinda ridiculous. The pile is somewhat out of control and we need to take action. We have already found the homes for the 4 husbands that someone attempted to "lose".
Come Friday, the remainder of the stuff will become part of the AK Wedding Registry. Happy couples will now be able to register for fun summer items to be part of their wedding gift list. Our registry org will not wash items before gifting, and we don't guarantee that anything will actually fit. But what better way to say "I love you sister-in-law" than to give her used swim wear!
Anything not promised via our registry will be donated to less fortunate swimming club. (probably AAC) on Friday.
Are you sitting around watching reruns of The Office? Have you yet to take off the sweat pants you put on Friday afternoon? Motivate yourself and come join us for Adult Tennis Drop-In tonight at AK?
Adult Drop-In is also known as One-Handed Tennis because the other hand is holding your beer / cosmo. This alone tells you how serious yet fun your evening will be if you join us!
Matches start at 6:30. Drinking started 2 hours ago.
See you there!
AK officially opens this weekend on Saturday at 10:00. It is very exciting as we have been putting in countless hours of hard work to clean up the mess we made last year. Sometimes I wonder if the property is used by a group of drunk college boys during the winter. It is a huge mess every spring.
Lizzy Horn is back as our pool manager and she has lots of fun planned for the year! Be sure to stop by and ask her about her school year. She has an amazing story about how she ended up on a train in Nepal with a polar bear and a 3 Elvis impersonators.
Here is a top 10 list of things you need to remember for you to fully experience the opening weekend at your club.
1. Sun screen is more important than you remember.
2. Drinking water is more important than you remember.
3. Drinking wine is more important than water or sun screen.
4. Never underestimate the value spending time at a place with no TVs or XBOX.
5. You never bring enough wine.
6. You should probably buy an extra bottle for that family that fed your kids last year.
7. Food trucks are not to be missed.
8. Fourth of July
9. Saturday's are the least crowded day all summer. (Sorry Wade. I know that's your little secret)
10. No llamas allowed. This year we mean it, Karl. Even if it is wearing a fun hat.
The pool opens very soon as summer 2018 is just a few days away. Frankly I'm too lazy to look at the actual date, so click here to check it out for yourself. We have lots of parties planned, sun burns expected and hotdogs to BBQ. It's going to be a great summer.
We are also very excited about our latest club investment. If you've driven by the pool you probably noticed we replaced the remainder of the cedar fence. The new fence is a composite material which should last forever, or until some idiot drives through it. It's wicked expensive, so we will not be providing toilet paper this year. But I think its worth it. We also leveled out the grass adjacent to the pool to offer more soft and plush grass.
More 2018 announcements are coming soon. You should begin to mentally prepare yourself for the crazy.
It's time to register for 2018 Junior Tennis Team. You might be thinking it is a little early for this. And you'd be right. USTA likes to move this date up a couple of weeks every year. Tennis associations are right up there with teenagers - you have no clue what they are thinking.
So click here to hop over to the AK website and register now.
Registration for Tennis Lessons is also open. It's just a tennis kinda weekend!
We offer a whole bunch of lesson types for all types of students. From toddlers to middle aged men who drink while they play, we have you covered. Everything you need to know is on the AK tennis page.
I spend all day on it, so the least you can do is take a look. I get paid by the click.
