BTA Banquet/ Annual Meeting is Thurs. Jan 21st. Come out and catch up with your friends. It all starts at 6pm at Bambino's in the ITIO Building downtown. We will start out with time for socializing, then eat about 6:30 and about 7 will start the meeting. If you ever have ideas you think the BTA should try you can always voice them at this meeting.
Bambino's always takes good care of us and serves great food. Cost of the meal is $16 per person. It is a good time to go ahead and pay BTA yearly dues. Dues for an individual is $15, Family $20, and for a Jr. (18 and under) it's $5.
We will also take time to honor the life of Marty Puckett. Marty stated that he held the BTA President position for about two ten year stints. He did a great job when he was at the helm.

Michael Grismore Tournament is a fundraiser for Bartlesville High School and JH Tennis programs. Michael played HS tennis for Bartlesville and taught lessons to many kids out at Hillcrest. Michael passed away at age 27 and this tourney is a nice way to honor his memory.
I am attaching the tourney form, an entry fee of $30 for the first event does include the cookout on Sunday at 5pm, which is free to all participants. If you want to enter more events, each additional event is $10.
Mixed Doubles are Friday 6-9pm. Adult/Junior Doubles is 2-5pm Sunday. Both of these are Round Robin.
In the Doubles events if you need a partner Pat can pair you up with someone else who needs a partner.
The HS kids are required to play in this tourney. There will be plenty of kids playing.
I am hoping there will be plenty of adults as well. It's fun and it's a good cause. Hope to see you there.
For more info call Pat Ritchie at Hillcrest Country Club 333-7660.
