Hello Sun City Pickleball Club Members: I have arrived back in Sun City for the winter. I am so happy to be back and can’t wait to see everyone at the courts. I will be at Marinette every morning for the remainder of the week and maybe even get in some evening play. Some of you may have to introduce yourself again because I’m old and won’t remember everyone’s names… but that’s why we all wear name badges .. right?!
Christmas Party … Final chance to buy Christmas party tickets is this Wednesday morning at Marinette. No tickets will be available at the door on Saturday. Party is set for Saturday, December 2nd and ticket prices are $10 for members and $20 for guests. The club will be collecting for a local food drive so please bring a non-perishable item to the party. We will need help setting up the Bell Center on Saturday so if you can help, please stop by between 1 and 1:30 p.m. to decorate the hall.
Color Team Tourney … Our annual fun team tourney is Tuesday, December 12th from 3-7 p.m. with a potluck in the Marinette auditorium. The event is completely filled at this time with a few extras in case we need a few subs. We could also use a few volunteers to help set up the food in the auditorium as people drop it off for the potluck. Registration is only $2 and must be paid by next Monday, December 4th to hold your spot. Please pay Kathy Masters, Dave Breault, or Marcia Gregory. Everyone will receive an email by Friday, December 8th to let each player know which team they will represent so they can make sure that they have the correct shirt color to wear for the event.
