Out with the old, in with the new....
As the outgoing president of the Tennis Association of Central Kentucky Board of Directors, I would like to take a moment to thank all of you who have been supportive of TACK and its mission of promoting local tennis, during times that have been, to say the least, unusual. I've used this newsletter as the primary beacon for that task, something that I've enjoyed thoroughly.

In particular I'd like to thank our Board, past participants in league play/programs/tournaments/clinics, our league coordinators, and the staff of USTA KY. I especially want to thank league captains, whose hard work make USTA league play happen.

On January 1, TACK's current Vice President, Charles Matthews, will officially take the reins as President. His involvement with, and commitment to, the game means that I know TACK will be in good hands. I will remain on the TACK Board as a past president. I ask that you give Charles the same support I've enjoyed.
