Due to circumstances beyond our control, Christmas Party Tickets will be on sale Monday evening from 5:30-7 at Marinette this week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning sales will continue as scheduled, and evening sales will go back to Tuesdays next week.
The Mandatory Meeting for those playing in the Leagues is tomorrow at 1 at Marinette. You should be registered prior to the meeting. See our website for more details.
First, thanks to all who played in, volunteered at and just came to watch the Roundup! And especially, thanks to Jeff and Lynda Skaggs and Donna Holick for putting it on, and to Kevin Pates for the great write up on our webpage.
Registration is still open for the Women’s League, which will play Wednesdays at noon, and the Men’s League, which will play Fridays at noon. A mandatory organizational meeting for all participants will take place Monday at 1 in Marinette Auditorium. If you are unable to make this meeting, you must contact Jeff or Lynda Skaggs immediately to make arrangements.
The first Ratings Clinic of the season will take place November 9 at noon at Marinette. Participants must be a member of SCPC, have been playing PB at least 2 months and not have an existing SCPC or USAPA rating. The Club will not override anyone’s USAPA rating and, at least for this session, will not be adjusting existing Club Ratings.
Courts 1-12 will be closed Tuesday thru Thursday next week for repairs to the expansion joints. All scheduled Club activities on those days will be cancelled. This certainly is not great timing for this project, but it could have been worse! Please plan your play accordingly!
The Color Tournament will take place November 11 at 2. Food will be available after play. More info on our website. Registration is still open.
The Volunteer Luncheon is scheduled for November 16 at noon on the Marinette patios. Lunch will be catered by Sardellas. If you have volunteered in any capacity in 2019 you are eligible to attend this event. Come on out and let us thank you! Registration closes November 10th.
The Christmas party will be here before we know it. Tickets go on sale Monday. They are $10 per person for members and one escorted guest. The party will feature a catered meal, terrific doorprizes and music by “Street Player”, a local band which plays regularly throughout the valley!
It was a great turnout for the 1st reciprocal of the season with Sun City West! After the women’s and men’s doubles, we were tied with Sun City West, each having 27 games won, but Sun City was ahead 230 points to 223 points. After the mixed doubles round, Sun City ended up beating Sun City West with following total scores: Sun City 58 games, 727 game points Sun City West 50 games, with 637 game points
Thanks again for participating! Special thanks to Cindy Golden and Bob Thacker for score keeping.

The Marinette lighting project is in full swing and appears to be on schedule. As of 11 this morning, all the old lights were down and nearly half the new ones were up. There may be unseen details involved prior to completion, but the goal of the courts’ being ready for play Saturday seems within reach.
The court wash schedule for Marinette has changed! ALL outside courts will be washed Saturday, October 26. Work will begin at 4AM, so they should be dry and ready for play shortly after 8. The covered courts will be washed Sunday, October 27. Without the sun to dry them, their availability will be later. Please plan your play accordingly.
Sign up is now available for Mens’ League. Play will be Fridays at noon. More info is available on the Club website, or contact Jeff Skaggs for more details.
Sign up will be available soon for the Color Tournament taking place November 11th. This is a fun event where 4 teams of up to 20 players compete against each other wearing their team “Colors”. Play will be against players of comparable skill levels. Lunch/light dinner will follow. More info will be posted with the sign up. Thank you Rich Heywood for stepping up to run this for us!
There are still a few slots open for our Line Judging Clinic and Referee’s Clinic coming up later this week. Thanks to Tom Jeffers for organizing both of these! Sign up on our website.
