The New Balls: Please leave these balls in the center of the court for the next group that rotates in and Do Not Put these balls in the Ball Racks on the fences.
After reading the last USAPA newsletter and the entry in the our last PB News, the question is: Is this the Onyx ball that will not be accepted for USAPA sanctioned tournament play after October of 2016? The second question is: Does it make any difference to us, since we do not sponsor Sanctioned Tournaments? Would you like to give us your opinion about these balls? Please send your comments to email@example.com
Our President, Sid Harris, has volunteered the use of our portable shade canopies at the upcoming Memorial Day Ceremony at WBV and because of this, Russ Lachance from the WBV Veterans Group gave our Pickleball Club a nice complement in a communication with our HOA. He said, “The Pickle ball Club has really come through again. I cannot tell you how much they do for us at the Veterans Dinner.“ Thanks Russ, for the compliment!
Blue Recycle Bin: DO NOT use this bin to sit on or lean on for support when you go from one level to the other as it is on wheels and it does move and therefore “dumps” you on your fanny! Yes, you will be much safer using the steps at the end of the courts rather than taking a short-cut through the seating area.
It is time to say goodbye to some of our friends who will be returning to their homes 'Up-North'. We wish them a safe journey, a happy and healthy summer, full of pickleball exercise and exciting games and hope that they will return to us early in the fall.
To these friends we say, “Send us pics of your “home” courts and tell us about the way your club handles a situation that is better/different from ours? How do they share using the courts, different levels of play etc.” Feel free to send any suggestions you might have to our President- firstname.lastname@example.org We would like you to stay in touch.
