Good morning Pickleball Partiers!
What a great Tournament we had yesterday. It was our biggest and best (my opinion). Congratulations to our winners! (SEE who on the website)
I CAN’T even begin to thank everyone who helped to make this a success! From the set up crew with the tables and chairs, the decorators led by Don MacNamara and Steve Greer, John B who always gets us organized, Bill Barbuto who led us in God Bless America and wrote and sang the theme to Welcome Back Westbrook Pickleballers. Special thanks to my Co-Director Peggy Baxter who I am already realizing I can’t survive without, check in table worker’s Marcia Dalton who handled the entire sign up sheet and money collecting, Jim Keller and JoAnn Sacco who checked people in, Dianne Dorschel, Ken MacCumber and Rick Sturgis who put together the pairings and matched players. The flow was incredible, it went smooth as ice - Dianne kept the playing going with one court after another starting games and ending. Liz Lage took our group picture and taped table cloths and helped wherever needed. Diane Ballard set up and kept the snack table supplied. Cindy Buxtrom picked up the birthday cake and helped where needed. FINALLY the clean up crew which were SO MANY I couldn’t name names because I KNOW I will forget someone. All I know is I COULD NEVER do all of this on my own. PLEASE forgive me if I fail to mention your name, Rick and Kathleen, Pat and Tom, Jack and Carol, Claudia, Donna and Jerry, Todd, Lynn, Carl and Glanita and last but certainly not least, my soul mate and life partner/hubby, Larus who is always there for me to lug things around that I can no longer lug, He also has to put up with me.....and always supports me. I could go on and on. We have a wonderful group of people who all add up to the best club in Westbrook (my opinion).
I thought Wendy and her hubby and friend from Into The Fire Catering was wonderful, I didn’t hear one bad thing about their pizza and let’s not forget our own Peter Salazar who provided a wonderful salad. We will definitely be using them again for more parties. Maybe a barbeque ribbon cutting ceremony for our new courts early in 2018. Either way, they’ll be back!
Our Annual Christmas Party is our next BIG PARTY. December 16th at The Lakes Ballroom from 5 to 9:30. It’s a mix em up theme so you can wear whatever you want. I will need more help so stay tuned for upcoming info. If you are interested in decorating a table any way you want please let me know! It is going to be a blast this year so be sure and put the date on your calendar. I suspect we will have our largest one yet! There will be a nice dinner, DJ with a photo booth and a bartender to serve us fun drinks. Btw, we have lost our bartender so if you know one or are one, come see me!!! We will pay you to make some fun drinks.
Last but certainly not least we have our Monday nite Social this evening starting around 5:30 to 6:00. I will be bringing leftover snacks from yesterday’s tournament so come on out and play, socialize and eat! Bring your own beverage of choice.
That’s it for now - hope to see you on the courts tonite.
ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU! THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN FOR ALL OF YOUR PARTICIPATION. I LOVE YOU ALL AND WANT YOU TO KNOW HOW MUCH YOUR ARE APPRECIATED!
Your Co-Social Directors Diane Durnell and Peggy Baxter..
