It gives me great pleasure to announce that our fundraising campaign has been an unequivocal success, having surpassed the funds necessary to purchase a mower in less than three weeks. Accordingly, “Angus” has been ordered, and should be hitting our courts in the next few weeks. (Tomko tells me the machine is on back-order, so timelines for arrival remain a bit vague at this point). Thank you to all of the generous NTC members who opened their wallets to make this wish come to fruition. Undoubtedly, the ball machine/mower combo will be the envy of clubs far and wide.
For anyone still wishing to contribute, there is still time to do so. Surplus funds from the Angus fundraiser will be put toward the acquisition of curtain netting for court #4, which is a few generous donations away from becoming a reality, too. This campaign will remain open for only seven more days (until April 30th), so, if you’re inspired to donate, please do so as soon as possible. Newly-joined members who don’t have a clue what I’m on about, or who wish to learn how to make a donation, should read my original April 2nd email, appended below.
Game, set, and match.
CEO, Ball Machine Division
