Pickleball Fix September already

by Bev Crane

A special Labor Day Cookout is being held on Sat. Sep 3 at the Pavilion. Grilled hamburgers will be the main dish with music and karaoke by our DJs Janey and Frank Tabor. Celebrate the holiday with good food, bring a dish for 6-8, your favorite drink, and listen and dance to music from the 60s and 70s with your pickleball friends and their guests. Karaoke and cornhole games too! Wear your 60s and 70s outfits and join the fun. More than 100 plan to attend!

Note: Those who signed up to attend received a Den email yesterday with some additional information about tomorrow’s cookout so please read it before coming.

Court Parking Reminder: Golf Carts

Remember golf cart parking is available on the left side of the Pavilion next to the Wellness Center. Players driving golf carts, please fill those spaces next to the Pavilion first so cars have available parking in the lot in front of the Courts.

This morning for those players who had signed up to play at 9am there were no available spaces for cars to park in front of the courts. Most of those spaces were filled with golf carts with only 4-5 golf carts in the designated area by the Pavilion. The dog park lot was also filled. Several players who drove cars even had to park in the Dollar General parking lot to find a space!!! Please be considerate of all players by parking in the correct areas. Remember the snowbirds are not even back yet when parking will be at a premium!
