Good Afternoon this Labor Day Weekend,
It has been so fantastic to get back playing doubles on our home courts! Judging from all the Members playing each day at Marinette, there is a lot of agreement here!! In fact, I understand the Mountain View Courts are busy too!!! So very glad to see so many Members back on the courts!
Everyone has been following the guidelines sent out by the RCSC for safe play . . . these guidelines can be found on our Club Website at suncitypickleballclub.org. As I stated in the last email, our Club is NOT officially back in session, yet, but, a lot of how well we follow these guidelines, will have a direct influence in moving toward our Club reopening! No guests are allowed at this time and your check in is monitored by swiping your RCSC identification tag. I know the personnel at our Rec Centers are just as glad we are back as we are!!
As you know, our Round Up Tournament has been CANCELED, however, other events/activities remain in the ON HOLD position. Some of those events/activities are the Club Membership Meeting, Thursday, October 22 . . . . the In House Club Tournament, Monday, Nov 9 . . . . the Volunteer Luncheon, Thursday, Nov 12 . . . . SC/SCW Reciprocal, Sunday, Nov 12 . . . . Club Membership Meeting, Thursday, Dec 3 . . . . the Club Christmas Party, Saturday, Dec 5, and the SC/SCW Reciprocal, Sunday, Dec 15 HAVE NOT BEEN, OFFICIALLY, CANCELED! Yes, they are in certain jeopardy, however, each calendar event/activity will be addressed as their date approaches . . . . STAY TUNED! We can be hopeful!
Once again, we have a CLUB MEMBER – KAREN MCADAM – running for a position on the RCSC BOARD in the upcoming RCSC BOARD elections. Please sign her petition to qualify her for getting her name on the ballot. Karen has, previously, been a great spokesperson representing our Club at RCSC Meetings! She would be a very welcomed member of the RCSC BOARD.
Some GREAT NEWS . . . well, in lieu of such a year as we have had . . . our Club Executive Board has recently, unanimously, decided that NO DUES will be due for the year 2021. This is applicable for every “paid up” Club Member for the 2020 year! BRAVO! Keep in mind, however, that each Club Member must still fill out a membership application for 2021. This is required! The form can be found (and easily completed) by going to our Club Website at suncitypickleballclub.org. The form for filling out the membership information can be found under the link OUR CLUB….JOIN OR RENEW! There will be some “paper” membership forms still available on the kiosk at Marinette also. For new Club Members there will still be a fee of $15 due when joining….new members will receive a name tag. Related to this, anyone who lost or needs another name tag, the fee remains at $7. A reminder, too, that name tags are to be worn at all Club Events/Activities once we get going again. If you need to reorder, this would be an opportune time to get that done! 2021 stickers for your name badge will be given out after your membership form is received.
That is a lot of info . . . for now,
