HOA Committee meetings- on Wednesday the 7th of September at 8:00 a.m., the HOA Board of Directors meeting will be in the FALC and at this meeting the HOA Board is hiring an architect who will review WBV facilities and prepare a plan to address deficiencies and suggest improvements for WBV. This is a very, very, important meeting, as we need to have the Architect recognize the importance of redesigning our Stadium Courts. Please try to attend, not to make a ruckus, but to learn what is being requested of him and to show our concern for better courts. Lets get involved - Put this meeting on your busy schedule!!
If you are one of the members that was asked to attend a committee meeting this month, please check the WBV Community News email that is sent to members because they do sometimes change the dates of the meetings. Have you already found a member to attend with you? It has been suggested that you wear your Pickleball Logo shirt to the meetings. (One way to help you remember to attend the meeting is for you to put on a cow bell now and do not allow yourself to take it off until you walk into the meeting-you will be so happy to get to take it off that you will remember to go to the meeting!)

A New Padlock -The chest will be receiving a new lock and combination number on Sept 12. If you feel that you need to be able to open the chest, please contact Maureen Dooling Secretary@wbvpickleballclub.org and tell her why you will need it. She will then give you the combination. You are asked not to share the combination number with member friends as we are trying to keep our things in storage safe because we did have things stolen from it this summer.
Sun City Matches - Since Ken Macumber has retired, we will need someone to coordinate these matches. If you can help to organize our teams for this event, Please contact President@wbvpickleballclub.org
The first one begins this month on Sept. 18. We will be playing at 6 p.m. instead of at the regular 1 p.m. time because they are having some work done on the courts that afternoon. This month they would like to begin with just 8 Advanced players, and 8 Intermediate players, both men and women for mixed doubles games.
This is a fun event and it gives us a chance to play pickleball with a variety of players. We also encourage our members to attend and be a great cheering team of support for our member players.
