Snow Update

Pictures are from March 31, 2015.  Most of the snow is gone.  You can see clay on some courts, others still have over a foot of snow.  It all depends on location - sun exposure and areas where snow drifted and accumulated are big factors. 
Lots of work going on by the crew while the snow melts. Windscreens are up, frost heaves on the walkways are being leveled, trees are pruned and all 88 net posts have been primed and painted.
