I canceled the October tournament due to projected unhealthy air quality levels.  We had 3 players that were already or potentially having respiratory issues so it seemed like the safest bet.  The social at the Jordans, however, was held as expected.


John & Natalie had just finished their remodel and treated us to tours of their lovely new home.  Everything was thoughtfully and elegantly designed.  My favorite room was the master bath and closets ... so gorgeous!  The living areas were perfect for RSTC socials as there was plenty of room for all of us to mingle, move, sip, and dine.

 The social theme was “Fall Colors” and it set the table for a feast that was dazzling to our eyes.  Bright greens (salads) and golds & oranges (carrots, sweet potatoes) were in the palette.  Penny Chin’s chocolate trifle was bright white layered with dark brown and crowned with red accents.  A delicious and warming beef stew, earthy potatoes, caramel apple and pecan pies brought plenty of fall flavors.



Everyone enjoyed the dinner and it was a very relaxing evening.  Thank you to the Jordans for hosting.  An extra thank you to Penny for making and Bob Evans for delivering the trifle even though Penny was sick and unable to attend; we hope you feel better!



Our final tournament of the year is November 11 and will be Team Tennis.  Format subject to change if we don't have enough players registered.  Cross your fingers it is not rained out!  Register now.


Rain is currently forecast for November 4, but, if it doesn't rain and the courts are dry, feel free to use them for November Open Play.  RSTC does have the courts reserved.

The social is November 4 and will be rain or shine.  The theme is "Signature Dish".  Bring a dish that people have asked for the recipe of (especially RSTC people), raved about, or you always make (e.g., for the holidays). Whatever is your "signature dish". Bring a card with your name/story and the recipe to share.


If you have past RSTC recipes that you aren't making for the social but you would like to share, please bring them too.  We'll post them up on our Wall of Fame!
