News Nuggets
Lively Lectures: Fiona Macaulay, who has chaired Lively Lectures for the last eight years, has passed the torch to Anne Fortier. An appreciative “thank you” To Fiona, who each year produced interesting and informative speakers! Anne starts off on a great note with Monday’s Shakesperience lecture by Dr. Jessica Riddell of Bishop’s U.

New family members Michel-Antoine Perrault and Marie-Josee Blouin were seen on the court with tennis pro Marc Blouin and a friend, visiting from Augusta Georgia National Golf and Tennis Club. Marc was the pro at NHC in the early 1980’s. He prefers the warmer climate in Georgia, but enjoyed his visit to NHC.

Tennis clinics: Are self rated, meaning each player must decide whether she/he is a Novice, Intermediate or Advanced player. By NHC standards, a rating of 3.0 is advanced. Less than that is Intermediate or Novice. Here’s the NTRP rating. It’s also a great guide to help you analyze your game!

Housekeeping: NHC Waste Management Initiative is led by Lex Gallagher, who is single handedly dragging us into the 5R world. Thanks Lex for all you are doing to bring NHC up to speed. You are our champion of the environment! Here is all NHC members need to know about waste management.

Water shoes. The debris left from the senior lounge fire has been cleaned up. There is still a slight risk of metal or glass which could injure swimmers. We have moved the swimming beach south, away from the old senior lounge. We strongly advise that members wear water shoes for any activity on the beach or in the water.

Cell phone advisory. Members are asked to minimize cell phone use while on club property. Parents please remind sitters that they are not to use cell phones on club premises other than in emergencies.

Coffee cups: Please return coffee-less cups to the kitchen.

Weekly updates to keep you in the loop are published each Friday evening by the NHC News Nugget publishing company, for the following week’s events.

Can’t wait to see you . . .
on the beach – on the court – on the tee . . .
on the lake – in the tent – on the porch!
