Event Sign-ups on Den

Check the latest Calendar of Events posted on the Courts Bulletin Board and on the TPPC website at https://www.tppickleballclub.org/calendar and make sure to sign up on Den for the event you want to play in. Note: You can only play on one court at a time so please do not sign up for two courts in the same time period. We also encourage players to sign themselves up so that you and a friend do not sign the same person up at the same time on different courts. Remove your name ASAP if you cannot play so others can fill your spot.

Notices: Upkeep of the Courts

--A wooden box with medical supplies is under the first shade area on the Courts. If you use the Medical Bag, please restore it to its usable condition. In the heat of the moment you may tear through it but after the emergency put it back in order for the next time it is needed. Thanks to volunteers Bob Dalley and Pat Thayer for keeping these bags stocked with medical items.

--Recently it was discovered that 2 of the court rollers used to dry the courts have been damaged. If you have any info on this, please contact the BOD at tppickleballclub@gmail.com.

Note from Bill Kehoe on his illness at the courts: The memory of my experience at the courts on Thanksgiving Day morning is pretty hazy but I know a lot of people helped take care of me in my moment of need. I'm eternally grateful to you all, and also for the many words and acts of sympathy and encouragement I've received since then. It's a huge morale-booster to have so many wonderful friends and acquaintances here in Timber Pines. I look forward to playing with you all again in the near future. Thank you for everything.

See you on the Courts and keep on picklin’,
