Court Usage: Some club members have been asked to leave courts 1-4 at different times of the day on many occasions recently. It has been confirmed with the RCSC office that all of our courts are available for play everyday … all day. Some RCSC workers at Marinette were misinformed and they will be advised of the policy so this issue should be resolved.
Guest Card Policy: There is a RCSC guest card policy for any member bringing guests to play Pickleball during club hours. The club must purchase the punch cards and maintain the use of these cards. Members must then purchase the cards through the club (from Marcia Gregory or Sylvia Csabon) and use these punch cards when checking in the guests at the reception area. Punch cards are $20 with 8 punches on each card. The guest can then reimburse the member the $2.50 rather than the member buying their own punch cards. Members can still purchase their own punch cards to use for family and friends that play outside of our scheduled club hours. So for any member that manages a group play event … like the Tuesday morning 3.5 ladies or the Wednesday mid-day 4.5 ladies, that coordinator must purchase the guest card from our club. This policy does not affect our reciprocal activities since those players do not pay to play at our club on the approved and scheduled dates. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact Marcia directly or see Marcia at the courts.
Club T-Shirts: The club shirts have arrived. Daryl Wimer will be at MountainView on Fridays from 9-10AM. Marcia Gregory will have shirts at Marinette on Mondays from 8-11AM. It is best to pay for any shirts with a check, but cash will be accepted (exact change only please). If you need to know what you owe for your shirt order, you can email Daryl or call him at 623-875-1676. The shirt prices are $13.50 each for S-XXL or $14.50 for 2X and 3X.

Club Tourney Entry Fees: The annual club tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, March 1. We still have 30 players that owe their $5 entry fee. Please try to get that paid by the end of next week or you risk being replaced in the tournament. You can pay Richard Heywood or Marcia Gregory by cash or you can deposit your check in the mailbox at Marinette.
Rating Clinics: Watch for more rating clinics to be scheduled soon.
Volunteers for Spring Slam: Our Spring Slam is getting closer… March 10-12. The club will be needing over 100 volunteers to assist with parking, monitoring doors, and overseeing the fruit/snack table during the entire tournament schedule. We will be adding a schedule to the web page soon and definitely looking to each club member to assist for at least a 2 hr time slot. This is one of our big fund raisers.
See you on the courts,
