January 2021 Newsletter

A Message From The President:
As the new year rolls in and the Covid-19 Pandemic rages on, we can only hope
that we will all be back playing tennis this summer and enjoying the safety and
solitude of our summer cottages. Please see note below reminding you that
your SSTC AND SSCA dues are both due by January 31st, 2021.
We will be once again following the strict regulations and guidelines by the
government and health officials in the spring. As that approaches we will be
letting you all know the situation and providing an update on court opening date.
I sincerely hope you and your families have a healthy and productive winter. We
will be ready to go in the spring and look forward to a great summer of tennis on
Georgian Bay.
On a sad note, Fran Wardlaw passed away last November.
Fran was a warm and vibrant person who always had a smile and a laugh to share. She was a great cook, loved to travel, and could wear any colour and look fantastic.
Her last years were a fight but she persevered with grace and courage. She spent her final months in her favourite place, Georgian Bay.
Fran was a keen tennis player and won the ladies title with Eli Taylor while battling cancer in 2018. She passed away quietly at her home in Toronto in the company of her brother and a few close friends. She was much loved and missed by all who knew her.
2021 Dues Payment:
As noted in previous newsletters, your annual membership fee is $350 per membership and is due by January 31, 2021. The due date has changed to align with the due date for the San Souci Copperhead Association dues to make it simpler. Your SSCA membership dues must also be paid yearly in conjunction with being a SSTC member.
Please note that if you are currently in another country other than Canada (e.g. United States) or with COVID-19 restrictions, you are still required to pay your annual dues.
Our Treasurer, Greg Cunningham, is pleased to offer different payment options for your convenience.
The preferred methods for paying for tennis club items are as follows:
• First – Interac bank transfer from your bank. This has the lowest fees to keep costs low. No password is required anymore. Reference your member first and last name in the email. Please email the etransfer to the Treasurer at sanssoucitc@gmail.com .
• Second – Credit card payments. This option has higher fees, which are added to the member price. Go to the website at http://www.ssca.info  and select ‘Dues payment’ from the ‘Tennis’ drop down menu.
• Last resort – Cheques are payable to Sans Souci Tennis Club. They can be mailed to the Treasurer Greg Cunningham at 24 Kingsgarden Rd, Etobicoke, ON, M8X 1S6. Please email Greg at  sanssoucitc@gmail.com  when you mail a check, so he knows to look for it.
Note that in accordance with our bylaws, your membership could be forfeited if you have not paid your annual dues by July 1st the following year.
