August 2018

Board Notes

It’s hard to believe its August! Soon the school bells will ring and we will adjust our pool hours beginning Monday, August 27. Since it is hard to say goodbye to summer and frequent dips in the pool we have decided to extend our season. The last day of pool season will be Sunday, September 16! We would like to thank our Dolphin Diner Manager, Teresa Hollmeyer and staff for providing yummy treats and good food along with efficient and friendly service this summer. Swim Club Management lifeguards made sure we had a safe pool season and Coach Mike has kept our tennis enthusiasts busy with camps, clinics and socials.

We hope many of you were able to enjoy our poolside socials planned by Board members Dave McDonald and Chris Hunt. This summer was full of fun with our annual end of school pool party, grills and guitars, RushPalooza, and Carolinacation. We look forward to one more grills and guitars featuring Fudd and a poolside movie night featuring The Greatest Showman! Tennis has been active as well with Disco tennis, Friday Night Fun and an upcoming trip to the Winston Salem Open.  There is something for everyone at Windyrush!

A Note from Coach Mike

Initially, I want to extend my sincere apology to Janine Rust. After she slugged, fought and outlasted 23 other 'determined' ? tennis aficionados at the last WRCC tennis social, I said the high point person didn't get a prize. OOPS Janine. You got:

  1. Our respect
  2. Our appreciation
  3. Our envy


  1. A little jealousy

That being said.

Next time we are coming after you!

I am so appreciative of all the players who came out, brought munchies and did what a social is supposed to do. SOCIALIZE!

The next social is more of spectating than playing.

Our plan is to take an excursion to Winston Salem and enjoy the professional event there on August 18th. Maybe we can get back on the courts and do battle again in September.

The plans for the after school program are taking shape as the summer is coming to an end. I will keep you posted.

Here we are in the heart of the summer. A very hot summer I might add.  Summer Junior tennis camp is thriving. Adult classes are holding steady. Make certain you are sitting down.
