February 1, 2018

Hello [First], American Journalist Franklin P. Jones once said. “the easiest way to solve a problem is to pick an easy one”….  What a guy for all ages! 
Here’s yours, “how do you make February 2018 the best WBV month of your life?”

Start with an 8:30am ribbon cutting ceremony to usher in your new Pickleball courts. They are fantastic. http://wbvpickleballclub.org/ followed immediately by the best and largest Tournament of your Clubs history on February 11th. http://wbvpickleballclub.org/ckfinder/userfiles/files/Valentine.pdf. Thank John Bauernfeind and his Tournaments Team.

Then take pride that your 2018 Membership drive was highlighted with a great showing at this year’s Club and New Resident events at the Lakes. You were well represented by Pat Suwaski, Robin Hill, Carole Bachman, Carl Roberts, Kathleen Sturgis, Mike Barnett and Bill Barbuto. I believe, we peaked interest in 150+ potential new members.   Oh my gosh, I must be leaving out someone…Sorry…..

Be delighted that another Ladder has been formed. It will be guided by the USAPA framework and have a High Intermediate/Adv focus. This is very exciting because it provides a path as skills improve for our B1 and B2 Ladder group. For 2018, we have 2 Novice Ladders, 2 Intermediate Ladders and 2 Advanced Ladders. The new ladder Captain is Joan Bodia. Interested?  Please drop her an email at joanbodiya@gmail.com  Have you heard about Robert Doerschel's kato52@cox.net Advanced ladder for 2018?  Take a look  http://wbvpickleballclub.org/Ladder.html  *8-> day dreaming

Mark your calendars, here are three items that will make your monthly highlight reel. (Ok, you may also pick New England in the Super Bowl)

2.       Saturday, February 17th  Lakes Ballroom at 10:00am, is the HOA Town Hall Meeting. Provide some input for the HOA Long Range Plan
