As the year comes to a close, I am writing to express gratitude and appreciation for the journey we have undertaken together in 2023. It is a time to reflect on the achievements and milestones that have enabled us to grow the club and regain our strength, post COVID.
This year we underwent a significant renovation. Our cardio and weight space on the second floor was the area of focus; creating a new state of the art functional movement space, upgrading and adding both weight and cardio equipment, and introducing The ZONE – an athletic-inspired small group training program that uses heart-rate technology and team camaraderie to help members take their workout to the next level.
I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing a return of events within the club. Our third-floor conference space came alive once again – hosting events both large and small. We celebrated businesses, milestones, and weddings – with our favorites being the member weddings of which we are so proud to have been a part. Another highlight was the International Racquetball Tournament (IRT) over Labor Day weekend, and boy was it fun. Hundreds of professional players flew in from all over the world to participate, while a handful of our members also competed. It’s the first time ever the IRT was hosted in Eugene, Oregon (what an honor!). Also in September, we held the Tap Takeover BBQ event on the rooftop, and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. It was our largest social event since before COVID, and it felt good to see so many members together again. We’ve held many children’s events this year with most of them selling out. All of this would not be possible without our wonderful staff who continue to shine through!
A special thank you to those who have supported us throughout the years, to those who have recently returned, and to all the new faces we’ve welcomed at the Club. You are the reason we do what we do, and we would not be able to exist without you.
As we look forward into the new year, we remain committed to providing the highest level of member experience we can. Cheers to a memorable 2023 and a healthy and joyous 2024!
