When the Richest Man in the World Comes to Santa Fe, Where Do You Think He Plays Tennis?
The morning of October 24th seemed like any other morning; that changed shortly after all of us arrived for work that morning. Victor was preparing for a private lesson booked through a travel agent for an out of town guest and everything was normal until that guest turned out to be Bill Gates, the richest man in the world! Bill took private lessons from Victor and Warren while he was here on Thursday and Friday and really enjoyed his time here at Shellaberger. Even though he was a busy man he did make time to take pictures with the staff. It was a pleasure having him here and hope we can welcome him again on a future trip to Santa Fe.
