Stay at Shellaberger and watch the programs disintegrate. Warren managed to drive quite a few players over there when he was at EG.
You BOYS at EG can continue to stroke your egos, but you should take a step back and think about who might be reading these comments. You could be pushing prospective members away, your negativity sure gave me a push in the other direction. Its clear that you work at the "club" just by reading the name on your comment. I would never want to associate myself with such childish behavoir. P.S If you KNOW NEW MEXICO tennis you KNOW the FULGENZI name!

Michael has been a positive leader of El Gancho tennis. Both USTA and social tennis are blossoming under his directorship. El Gancho is definitely investing in both its tennis program and the rest of the club. There is nowhere else in Santa Fe with all the features of El Gancho. When I first joined El Gancho 4 years ago (under Warren), he did not help me make any tennis connections. Every event focused on including his family. Now, not only do I have my base groups, but Michael's organized programs are introducing me to many players at my level and above that I hadn't yet met. Michael deserves kudos for his dedication and ability to meet the diverse needs of a tennis community.

It's sad that you cannot appreciate what Warren does not only for his family but tennis players he comes in contact with. He teaches the game and always manages to help anyone he teaches tennis to improve their game. It's too bad you people have no sense of family, as Warren does, just one of the many qualities of Warren which is very admirable. Money goes so far, but a family such as Warren's is something which is priceless. The Fulgenzi family is not only THE top tennis family in New Mexico, but also the 2008 Southwest Tennis Family of the year. Obviously there is no room for that at El Gancho unless its a family membership to stuff in their pockets.

<quoted text> clearly you have NOT been to shellaberger and have no idea what your talkin about.
Yeah, what do you know? I am curious if you ever met this Mike Buchica that I am talking about? If you did know this guy, isn't it true that prior to his departure from this tennis program, he made this Shellberger Center a great Tennis Center at CSF? But what happen over at CSF is no different on what is happening at El Gancho, same-ole politics. It's everywhere.

The mirrors at El Gancho weren't large enough for Warren's ego - had to go someplace else.....
