A BIG “Thank You” to our volunteers for the recent Sun City Spring Slam – it couldn’t happen without all of you! A special thanks to the chairpersons for the largest committees: Mo and Steve McClean, Karen Madison, Deb Lantzy, Donna Holick and Charlotte Peters. President Dan Haberman sweated a bit before receiving our Pickleball allotment but his finger-crossing worked, and we got the balls one day before the tournament started. Jeff Skaggs suffered an injury, also the day prior to play, but his bad luck to not be able to play was good luck for us as he and Lynda were there every day doing much of the work they’ve done previously when serving as Tournament Directors. Lynda was instrumental in re-working our club logo to fit on the medals, which were very well received by the players. Donna Holick was equally called upon often for advice and direction. Treasurer Patty Evans was there every day to pay the referees and other incidental bills. The award for being the greatest helper for set-up and take-down goes to Frank Concotelli – this year, and every year as he is always there to help the process.
So another very successful tournament is in the books for the Sun City Pickleball Club. Mark your calendars, loosely, for a date in October for the Roundup, and prepare to volunteer once more as tournaments cannot happen without your help!
