The Spring Slam at Sun City takes place this weekend at Marinette. All 20 courts have been allocated for the tournament. While there may be a few available at any given time, you should plan your open play at Mountain View. Come out and cheer for your friends and enjoy some really good pickleball!
The Club Tournament was a huge success in spite of a computer glitch. The following is from Richard Heyward:
First, I had 4 people who signed up and did not show up, no advance notification from any of them.
Second, Mr. XYZ walked off and left his group short a person before the end. No explanation.
Having had my complaints raised, I would like to publicly thank, through our webpage, the following.
After sorting the players following the no shows, our printer went on strike and refused to print anything.
Dianna kept the sheets under control during our frantic effort to get games moving and Jeff was an outstanding announcer.
Phil put in effort beforehand and sorted the prizes.
Thanks again to all the volunteers and participants. The “No Shows” and the person who left his group stranded will be ineligible to participate in our Dink Tournament on March 25th.
Ryan is going to run Limited Mobility Pickleball until the end of April. The last organized session will be April 26th. Hopefully many of the participants will get together on their own through the summer. LMP will be RESCHEDULED due to the Slam to Tuesday at 10 for this week only.
Sign up for the Dink Tournament March 25 is now available on line. Sign up as a team, with one person doing the registering and paying for both. Since most courts will be in use for the tournament, Paddle Play and the Ladder will be cancelled on that date.
As mentioned in earlier emails, “no shows” will not be eligible for the next Club event. There is a tremendous amount of work put into each of our events, and having to reshuffle the entire schedule can be a major undertaking. The courtesy of a phone call a day in advance is all that’s asked if you must cancel.
