The vote for 2018 officers will take place at the General Membership Meeting in November. The exact date is to be determined.

I. President: Steve Ordahl
A brief statement of my qualifications follows:
We have owned a home at the Ranch since 2010 and have been long time members of SBRTA. During this time I have served as team captain of the Roadrunners in the 2015 Steiness Tennis Festival, Vice President of the Association for 2 years, and have the honor of serving as President for 2017. I served as a member of the committee established to work with Robson Communities to bring additional courts to the Ranch, and have worked hard over the past year to see those courts come on line.
Prior to moving to the ranch, I had a long career in government, private business, and the military in which I served for almost 30 years. In all of these roles I held senior leadership positions with significant responsibility.
I look forward to the opportunity to served as SBRTA President in 2018.
Steve Ordahl.

II. Vice President: Wes Hurst
1973 BS EE with Distinction University of Oklahoma
1st in '73 class.
33 years with Procter & Gamble Group Manager Product Supply Senior Manager Human Res.

III. Secretary: Sandy Schlager
I am interested in being nominated as SBRTA secretary. Here is my bio information short & sweet:
1. Certified Speech-Language Pathologist (MA,CCC-SLP) in the public schools for 42
years.
2. Past officer positions including secretary for professional organizations at local,
county, and state levels. Member-at-large in the national association.

at the adult community we lived in immediately before we moved here.

IV. Treasurer: Lutz Pape
After immigrating to the US in 1970 from Germany I got my degree in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota in 1972 and started my career in public accounting with Touche Ross & Co. After 4 years I joined one of my clients in the securities broker/dealer industry. I held several positions, including Controller and Vice- president/Internal Audit Director. In 1994 I decided to leave the board room intrigues and become the Chief Financial Officer of a start-up company in the disaster recovery area of the brokerage industry. Three years later we sold that company and I decided life was too short to waste it working, so I retired. We moved to Washington state in 2003 and after 10 years of " liquid sunshine" we were looking for the "real thing" and came to the Ranch. No regrets so far.

V. Membership Chair: Beena Ordahl
I plan to continue as membership chair unless challenged. My background includes teaching as well as administrative experience. Good organizational skills, the ability to anticipate needs, and the desire to grow the SBRTA membership are some of the assets I bring to the position.

August Chalk Talk: Topspin, Progressive Drills

We will meet at court #3 at 7:00 A.M.
We will discuss a series of progressive drills going over the basic concept of topspin all the way to the full swing. None of the skills require the use of the ball machine. Dean Alfrey and Elmer Klavetter look forward to seeing you there.

LEAGUE PERIOD: This Intra Club Doubles League will cover four weeks.
SCHEDULE: Once teams are established for each category, a schedule of matches will be established. Teams will then set up their own time/date to play.

SUBSTITUTIONS: Each team may have ONE substitute player of equal or lesser rating than the person they are subbing for. Each team is allowed to substitute TWICE over the course of league play.

Embed Videos

You can embed two videos for each NewsPage (you have a NewsPage for each news feed you publish). The "Account Video" will appear for all your NewsPages regardless of which NewsPage you used to enter the embed code. However, the "NewsPage Video" is unique to each NewsPage. In other words, you can specify a different NewsPage Video for each NewsPage, but specify only one Account Video that will be used across all of your NewsPages.

To get the code for embedding a video, open the video in YouTube, click "Share", then click "Embed". Copy all the code that appears in the box and paste it into one of the two boxes below.

Include descriptions for the videos if you wish.
