2011 was filled with dramas. A retina was torn, and a flying racquet barely missed a player.
A year like this should end with vicious rumors and laughter at ATC Holiday Party! Please feel
free to dress up or down, however you like it!
Date: December 3 (Sat)
Location: Mekong River Restaurant, 215 East 6th Street
Time: Cocktail at 6:30PM, Dinner at 7:00PM
Fee: Free for all members, $15 for guests
Sign up: www.austintennisclub.com/events (please choose either “Meat” or “Vegetable”)
It is a BYOB event (even beer and wine!), so if you enjoy adult beverages,
please bring them with you. Soft drinks and mixers can be purchased at the restaurant, and ATC
will provide setups.
We’ll once again collect unwrapped toys for a toy drive and play the ever-so-popular
White elephant (gift exchange) game during the evening. If you choose to participate
in the game, please bring a gift of around $15.00 in value.
We’ll also give out awards to outstanding members and announce next year’s board members
at the dinner.
We look forward to seeing you and spending fun time together.
ATC is very lucky to have many outstanding members who bring inspirations on and off the court, and
once a year, we recognize them at the year-end banquet.

Once all the nominations are collected, we’ll send you an instruction on how to vote next week.
It's mid-October already, and it's time for us to plan for the next year's board. Our planning begins
with collecting nominations from members, and we'll contact the nominees to see if they are willing to
accept the position. If there is more than 1 nominee in the same position, we'll have an election
sometime next month.
We have 7 positions to fill, and they are listed below along with a name of person who is currently
holding the position. If you want to learn about a position, please feel free to talk to the board member.
We would very much appreciate if you could take some time and think which fellow members can fulfill
these positions the best. Please send us your nomination to
