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!
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

A Ratings Clinic is scheduled for Friday, March 1, at 2-4 pm at Marinette. Registration is required and is available online. Please note this clinic is ONLY for those members who currently have no rating.
Since it is warming up, Couples Night/Social Night will have dinner on the Marinette patios this Friday. Bring a meal and a drink and perhaps a light snack to share.
Beginning late this week Franklin balls will once again be supplied by the Club.
While not perfect, this seems to be the ball that will give the Club the best service for its money for the foreseeable future. Balls will be placed in the racks and coolers. They will not be handed out to anyone for any reason. They are purchased by the Club for use on Sun City courts ONLY. There is no reason for any of them to be in anyone’s bag or backpack!.
The Sun City vs Sun City West Reciprocal was a tight competition yesterday, but we managed to pull it out by winning 50 games to 48 games! This was the fifth competition out of six and as it stands now, Sun City leads the series 3-2. The social gathering and snacks on the patio were enjoyed by all. Thank you to everyone who competed and bringing their “A” game! Special thank you to the scorekeepers: Sam Conway, Frank Spina and Terri Smiley who rushed over to help after winning the Gold Medal with Jan Hodgson at the Grand Canyon State Games Tournament!
We look forward to next month’s and last competition of the season at Sun City West Liberty Courts on March 17th, please sign up as the slots fill quickly!
We need 3 women for the A division for reciprocal play this Sunday. The club will have to forfeit if we don’t have enough players. We don’t want to cancel this event with Sun City West. Everybody who plays in this event has a great time so please sign up. The play is at Marinette at
We need three more 4.0+ men and six 4.0+ women to sign up for the Sun City Reciprocal next Sunday @ Marinette. Please sign up through Sign Up Genius if you’re available that day.
A reminder from RCSC that NO outside flyers are to be displayed at our courts without prior RCSC approval. There was at least one flyer around during the SSIPA tournament that had not been approved. While it was an innocent enough flyer, (it had to do w Pickleball in Jamaica) it must not happen again.
The key to access the Lobster machine from our closet is now back at the desk at Marinette. Please ask POLITELY for the key, bearing in mind that there may be others at the desk who also need the FA’s attention. You may be required to show ID, will sign a log and leave your keys and or RCSC card at the desk. The remote for the machine will also be at the desk and must be returned, along with the key, for you to be signed out.
Couples/Social Night is a continuing Friday evening event. Sign up for dinner is available on Sign Up Genius, and you may also contact Murray and Terry Griffin to check on plans for the evening. Due to the continued cool weather, his week’s dinner will be at a local restaurant, not on the patios.
