Thanks to all the club members that came out for Fun Day at Mountain View. There were snacks aplenty and challenging games for the players at all levels. The temperature was perfect with a light breeze to keep us all cool and focused on our game. See you at our next event!
Congratulations go out to all our club members who played at the 1st Annual Wickenburg Ranch Tournament this past weekend. The tournament was well attended by not only our club players, but also many club members who made the trip to Wickenburg to cheer on our players in very competitive matches.
Jane Powell and Susann Johnson received a bronze medal in women’s 4.0 level
Diane and Doug Hill took silver in mixed doubles 3.0 level
Doug Hill and Dale Darling won silver in men’s 3.0 level
Donna Holick and Jan Hodgson took away the gold medal in women’s 3.5 competition
Carol Arinno and Cathy LaParl have organized a Women’s-Only Ladder to run this summer on Wednesdays at 8 at Marinette. If you will be here between May 1 and June 26 and would like to participate, please sign up on the Club website. A link has already been created. If this trial run is successful, the Scheduling Committee will find a time slot for a Women’s-Only Ladder during the winter.
It’s going to cool off again for a few days, but summer temps will be here soon! Please make an extra effort to return balls to their coolers, and get those coolers under cover at Marinette.
Reminder for all club members that coming up this Thursday at Mountain View at 4:00 PM, the Club will be hosting our Fun Day event. The Club will furnish plates, napkins, cups
Sorry for the delay: MailChimp has been winning the battle for awhile!
Thanks to all who came to our Membership Meeting Tuesday! While aware it was an inopportune time for many, we felt it important to schedule a meeting at Fairway and that was the only time slot available anywhere within our requests. Although the discussion got a bit contentious at times, many good points were made, and it appeared most realized the Scheduling Committee and Board are doing everything possible to be fair to all members. We will continue to address your concerns as fairly as possible. The paperwork is ready to be submitted for approval of the purchases discussed, and we hope to hear something soon. The Minutes are now available on the Website and will be posted to the bulletin boards soon.
Thanks to all who took a few moments to share their thoughts on the Dink Tournament which took place Monday. Hopefully some adjustments can be made that will draw more participants next time.
Our next Club event is a Fun Day at 4PM on Thursday, April 11, at Mountain View. Bring your paddle, a snack to share and your beverage of choice! The Club will provide plates, napkins and cups. This is a great opportunity to meet, and renew friendships with, some members you haven’t met or rarely see.
Perfect PB weather coming up! Get out and enjoy!
MEMBERSHIP MEETING TOMORROW @ NOON @ FAIRWAY.
Be there! And please wear your nametag!
The Farewell Dinner Friday evening was a great success! Thank you to all who attended – you are what makes these functions work! And Thank You once again to PK and her volunteers, this time especially Tom Jeffers and Steve McClean!
No report yet on the Dink Tournament, but past efforts say Phil Arinno again did a great job on it. Thank you Phil! This was, however, an event that was very poorly attended. We need your feedback. If you did play, would you like to see this event again? And if you did not, why not? Is it just a dead event that will never interest you? Bad day and/or time? Didn’t like the format? Something else? Please respond to this email with your thoughts on this subject, or email Phil or me directly.
As most of you know by now, Ed Millett has had to resign as our President for health reasons. He will be sorely missed, especially by those of us who try to take up the slack. As a result of Ed’s resignation, I have moved in to the office of President and Tom Jeffers has agreed to fill the office of Vice President for the balance of the year. Thanks for all your work Ed! And thank you for stepping up to help out Tom!
The Nominating Committee is set, and it met for the first time this afternoon. The members

To the club
A lot of members have been asking about me.
With that, I am going to take a step back and step down from the board. I talked to David and he is going to step up and be the president rest of the year. I know he will do a great job, he has been a great help to me this year.
In our last email, I incorrectly identified a recently deceased member as John Falbo. The correct first name is Jim. My apologies to Jim’s family and those of you who could not identify him because of my error. The balance of the report is accurate.
The Dink Tournament is not filling as early as we had hoped. Please go to the Club Website and register today. Once on the website, go to “Our Club”, “About Our Club”, and scroll to “Sign up Links”.
Don’t forget the last day to register for the Farewell Dinner is Tuesday, March 19! More details on the Website.
A beautiful week coming up for Pickleball! Get on out there!
