Thanks to everyone for coming out for the Oklahoma State Singles this past weekend, we had lots of great matches and a good turnout.  You can view the results here and we'll post pictures soon.  

We have several announcements as well.  Firstly, Dave Watson is stepping down as the ORA president.  He has served as the ORA president for several years, and is moving forward with his life, including relocating to out of state, and is stepping down as a result.  We would like to thank Dave for his many years of contributions to racquetball in the state of Oklahoma, as well as his contributions nationally.  Dave has been a great asset and we will miss him, but wish him well in his future endeavors!

As a result of Dave's departure, as well as a couple of vacancies on the board, we have elected a few new board members.  Logan Reese, Brandon Davis, and Bob Cole have all been added to the ORA board from the Oklahoma City area.  In addition, Therese Lewis was promoted to the president position from her previous position of vice president, and Shaun Manning was appointed as the new vice president.  For a complete list of board members and their positions, click here.

Thanks to the new board members for volunteering, and we look forward to continuing to grow the sport in Oklahoma.  Feel free to contact any of the board members if you are interested in serving or have ideas or suggestions for us.

Lastly, we inducted Stephanie Bird into the ORA hall of fame.  Stephanie has served for many years on the ORA board, and has been the tournament director for nearly every tournament run in Oklahoma for years.  We all appreciate her efforts, and tournaments in Oklahoma would not be possible without her contribution.  We'll have a link up soon with Stephanie's bio.
