NETC Update 
Another Holiday Season is fast approaching and we池e busily getting ready for next summer. I致e planned trips to several colleges in the US and to Europe to recruit staff. Mailings will go out to about a hundred tennis coaches to recruit counselors. You値l see ads on the internet and in tennis publications. We値l be working very hard in the next few months to make the NETC 2001 staff the best ever!
I spent many hours in October developing the new NETC Web Site. It痴 up and running now and will be updated frequently. You値l be able to print out the Confirmation Letter and all the forms you need for camp. The Newsletter will no longer be mailed and will be available only on the Web Site. We plan to upload a Session Summary immediately after a session of camp ends. For example, within a few days of the end of Session 1 we値l have photos, tournament results, and highlights online. We値l do the same with the Alumni Reunion in January. I知 really excited about the possibilities and think you値l find it a great way to keep up on what痴 happening at NETC. Let me know if you have suggestions!
The Alumni Reunion will again be at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club. You値l receive the 2001 NETC brochure and information on the Early Registration Discount in mid-December.
Have a great Holiday Season! I look forward to seeing all of you at the Alumni Reunion and at camp this summer.
