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 are: Nancy LeRoy-Mott, Jerry Raisanen and Karen Tolliver.

If you are interested in filling one of our Officer Positions contact one of these members as soon as possible.
If you are interested in participating in the Club Dink tournament, you need to sign up NOW!
Registration is available on our website.

The Farewell Dinner is this Friday at 6. You must register on our Website by 8 this evening to be included in this event!
The Dink Tournament will be Monday at Marinette. Registration has been disappointingly slow. The Men’s brackets will be combined into one, as will the Women’s.

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.

The Snowbird Farewell Dinner is coming up quickly on March 22 at 6PM in Marinette Auditorium. The Club will provide turkey, ham and a vegetable lasagna while members bring sides, salads, and deserts.

The Dink Tournament follows the Dinner on March 25 at 9 at Marinette. The Club will provide lunch following play. This is a fun event you don’t want to miss! Sign up today! This will be our last major event until Independence Day.

Our Club Tournament is this Friday, March 1. Marinette courts 1-16 will be in use for the tournament from 9-noon. Please schedule your play accordingly. Courts 17-20 will be available all day for Drop-In play, and regular court usage will resume approximately at noon.
Candy will be at the Tournament with Club Shirts. Please arrange to pick up yours if you haven’t already done so.
Sign up is now available for the Desert Frogs/Snowbirds Farewell Dinner, which will take place in Marinette Auditorium from 6-8PM, March 22. The Club will provide the meats for this dinner, and members will bring sides, salads, and desserts. There is no sign-up fee, but any no-shows will be ineligible to participate in the next Club event.
Bill Booth has provided us with a QR code to access the Club’s daily schedule:
A QR code for the Court Schedule has been placed on the Marinette bulletin board and on one of the tables in the breezeway between courts 13-16 and 17-20.
When you use a barcode scanner or QR code reader on your smartphone to scan the QR code, you will automatically get a clickable link to the court schedule for the current day’s events at Marinette. After the site is in your browser, it can be helpful to save it as a bookmark in the browser of your smartphone.
Club shirts have arrived. Candy Laube will be at Marinette tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:00 for pick up. Checks should be payable to Sun City Pickleball Club.
The Club Tournament scheduled for this Friday has been POSTPONED to next Friday, March 1. Times remain the same. If you cannot play due to the change, please let Richard or Barbara Heywood know immediately!
The SLAM is coming up in little more than 2 weeks. There are still a few volunteer slots open. Sign up is available on the Club website.
An end of season dinner for the Desert Frogs to say farewell to the Snowbirds is scheduled for March 22 from 6-8 PM at Marinette. Sign up will be available soon. There will be no fee to sign up for this event, as the Club will provide the meal. HOWEVER, if you sign up and don’t show up you will be ineligible to participate in the next Club Event! The major reason for fees being collected in the past has been to assure attendance. If this works, fees will be eliminated from most future events.
Following on March 25 is the Club Dink Tournament. Tentative start time is 11 AM. Lunch will be provided, and there will be no entry fee. Again, if you sign up and don’t show up, you will be ineligible for the next event. Sign up will be available soon.
Our next Club Membership Meeting will be March 26 at noon at Fairway. A lot of things are happening in our Club: you don’t want to miss this!
