On Sunday evening, one of the meet calendar proposals from the post-season survey finally reached 40 votes, a level which constitutes a majority of TSA's 78 member teams.
The winning calendar option schedules meets on six consecutive Tuesdays, starting on June 14th and ending on July 19th – basically identical to the 2010 calendar, though the dates all move up by one day due to the usual precession of the calendar from year to year. The teams voting in favor of this motion were:
Bedford at Falls River
Carlyle & Chatsworth
Jewish Community Center
North Ridge & Raleigh Racquet
Zebulon & Zebulon Country Club
Three other teams (Brookstone, Haddon Hall, Meredith Townes) also recorded a vote for this proposal, but I did not count them because they also recorded a separate vote for a different meet calendar proposal, so their overall intention is unclear. Nevertheless, the other 40 affirmative votes are enough to give the favored option an absolute majority of the Board, so we will adopt that schedule.
If your team still hasn’t completed the post-season survey, please don’t ignore it just because we have decided the meet calendar for next year. The survey is also your only chance to register your preferences for your 2011 committee assignments, so please fill it out if yours is one of the few remaining holdout teams.
