Thanks to all the club members that came out for Fun Day at Mountain View. There were snacks aplenty and challenging games for the players at all levels. The temperature was perfect with a light breeze to keep us all cool and focused on our game. See you at our next event!
Congratulations go out to all our club members who played at the 1st Annual Wickenburg Ranch Tournament this past weekend. The tournament was well attended by not only our club players, but also many club members who made the trip to Wickenburg to cheer on our players in very competitive matches.

Diane and Doug Hill took silver in mixed doubles 3.0 level
Doug Hill and Dale Darling won silver in men’s 3.0 level
Donna Holick and Jan Hodgson took away the gold medal in women’s 3.5 competition

If you will be here between May 1 and June 26 and would like to participate, please sign up on the Club website. A link has already been created. If this trial run is successful, the Scheduling Committee will find a time slot for a Women’s-Only Ladder during the winter.
It’s going to cool off again for a few days, but summer temps will be here soon! Please make an extra effort to return balls to their coolers, and get those coolers under cover at Marinette.

Be there by 7:45 to sign in and participate; hopefully there will be enough gals for 2 divisions (2.0 and 2.5-3.0 and 3.5).

The goal of this event is to have fun and enjoy good competition with gals of your own level It is a trial run for a permanent Women’s-Only format in the Fall so be patient with Cathy and Carol.

Sorry for the delay: MailChimp has been winning the battle for awhile!
Thanks to all who came to our Membership Meeting Tuesday! While aware it was an inopportune time for many, we felt it important to schedule a meeting at Fairway and that was the only time slot available anywhere within our requests. Although the discussion got a bit contentious at times, many good points were made, and it appeared most realized the Scheduling Committee and Board are doing everything possible to be fair to all members. We will continue to address your concerns as fairly as possible. The paperwork is ready to be submitted for approval of the purchases discussed, and we hope to hear something soon. The Minutes are now available on the Website and will be posted to the bulletin boards soon.
Thanks to all who took a few moments to share their thoughts on the Dink Tournament which took place Monday. Hopefully some adjustments can be made that will draw more participants next time.
Our next Club event is a Fun Day at 4PM on Thursday, April 11, at Mountain View. Bring your paddle, a snack to share and your beverage of choice! The Club will provide plates, napkins and cups. This is a great opportunity to meet, and renew friendships with, some members you haven’t met or rarely see.
Perfect PB weather coming up! Get out and enjoy!
Ann Reich, who was a member of the Sun City Pickleball Club, passed away on February 9, 2019. To honor Ann’s memory, the 2018/2019 Women’s League of the Sun City Pickleball Club, collected donations from league members to honor Ann’s life and friendship with us. It was decided to use the funds and donate to the Sun City PRIDES to plant a tree in Ann’s honor and participate with the PRIDES in their annual Arbor Day Tree Planting Celebration held on March 28th. Ann’s two daughters, Denise and Lisa & a few of their family members, joined us in planting a Red Pistache tree at the PRIDES Celebration at 108th & Peoria Avenue. Both daughters said a few words about their mom and how much Ann loved pickleball and all her friends in Sun City. We very much appreciate the PRIDES in helping us to honor Ann’s memory & her love of Pickleball.

MEMBERSHIP MEETING TOMORROW @ NOON @ FAIRWAY.
Be there! And please wear your nametag!
The Farewell Dinner Friday evening was a great success! Thank you to all who attended – you are what makes these functions work! And Thank You once again to PK and her volunteers, this time especially Tom Jeffers and Steve McClean!
No report yet on the Dink Tournament, but past efforts say Phil Arinno again did a great job on it. Thank you Phil! This was, however, an event that was very poorly attended. We need your feedback. If you did play, would you like to see this event again? And if you did not, why not? Is it just a dead event that will never interest you? Bad day and/or time? Didn’t like the format? Something else? Please respond to this email with your thoughts on this subject, or email Phil or me directly.
