|This is a message to all those interested in playing in our St. Patricks Day Tournament from our Tournament Director, John Baurenfeind|
IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON PLAYING, PLS READ THIS!
I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT RARELY ARE THINGS PERFECT.
IF WE HAVE A LOT OF PLAYERS, (had 84 last yr and 252 games not including semis and finals)
WE WILL BE USING THE TEMPORARY COURTS TO EXPEDITE PLAY SO WE CAN GET DONE IN A TIMELY FASHION (before sunset).
WE KNOW THE COURT ASSIGNMENTS FOR THE FIRST 10 PAIRINGS, AFTER THAT WE WILL PUT PLAYERS IN COURTS AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. I THINK OF THIS AS THE “POTLUCK OPTION." SO, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT YOU COULD PLAY 1,2 OR 3 GAMES ON TEMPORARY COURTS.
LAST YEAR A PLAYER TOOK GREAT UMBRAGE BECAUSE THEY HAD TO PLAY TWO GAMES ON TEMPORARY COURTS. WE HAVE NO WAY OF KEEPING TRACK OF WHO PLAYED ON WHAT COURTS; JUST KEEPING SCORES IS A MAJOR TASK. PEOPLE, "IT IS WHAT IT IS."
WIND CONDITIONS. THIS HAS ALSO BEEN AN ISSUE IN PAST TOURNAMENTS. IF IT IS BLOWING, THE TEMP. COURTS AND COURTS 5-8 CAN BE CHALLENGING. PLAY ON 1-4 WOULD BE PREFERABLE. BUT, ONCE AGAIN WE WILL BE PUTTING PLAYERS INTO WHATEVER COURT IS AVAILABLE.
AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THEMSELVES…..ISN’T THIS WHAT PICKLEBALL IS ALL ABOUT?
