Hello [First],
I know you have been waiting....I held off on a President's March Message until afterday's yesterday's Board meeting expecting a few messages to solidify, and they did.

First, I have facilitated discussions around the non-resident membership question.  Here is our final answer. The Pickleball Board took a decision in 2015 that no new non-residents would be allowed to join. (By Laws Article II Membership) That decision was affirmed by a Membership By-Law vote in 2016. This discussion is closed.  The By-Laws can be amended as defined in Article XIII Section B.

Second, there has been much discussion around club member "guests" playing during club member assigned playing times. This seems to be most often an issue during the 8-10:30am and 3-5:00pm Club  playing time.  As we head into the next 90 days, may I ask you to do a few things? Please explain to your guests, that you’re playing with them on Club time. If courts are filling up, please use your temporary net on Sports Court #2, based on the posted schedule.  Make every effort to eliminate the wait time for our members.
Check the Court Activity sheet in the Macumber Bulletin Board to determine open Village playtime.  

We want to be respectful of you and your guest's needs, so please and make every effort to honor our club member needs.
                         We are all Club Members and Friends, Let’s be Friendly

Third, there has been much discussion around the need for improved "play process" (i.e. rotating on and off the courts fairly).    We are looking for someone to head-up a "paddle-up/paddles-down" (you know what I mean) Ad-hoc committee to structure and post the player rotation into play process.Just drop me a line with your willingness to run the committee.

Fourth, please keep in mind the Pickleball sponsored Blood Drive on Tuesday, March 14th in the Vistas from 9:00am-2:00pm.  Call Mark at 623-695-4925 or go to (Sponsor code: Westbrookvillage)  

Fifth, don't forget to sign-up for the St. Patrick's Day Tournament!

Bigger is "NOT" Better......Better is Better!!

Let's Play, Now, it's Your Serve
