PickleBall Fix: June 11, 2021

Four new members joined the Pickleball Club this week, bringing the total membership to 715!

Sue Hunter, the Club’s IT helper, has been at work again to help members use Den easily. For those who access Den on mobile phones (iPhones or Androids), Sue has drawn up instructions for installing a PB Den app on these phones. Review them on the TPPC website:

Saturday Night Cookouts

A beautiful evening was the setting for last Saturday night’s cookout, and Chef Gino’s fried chicken was a big hit for the more than 35 members attending. It was complemented by the delicious side dishes from members. Gino has a tasty sausage and peppers dish for tomorrow night’s cookout, so bring your side dishes to enjoy a great meal.

Thanks to all those members who volunteered: working at the sign-in table, setting and taking down tables, and helping to clean up afterwards. The Club appreciates everyone’s help to make our socials fun for all members! Thanks to Pam and Tom Asbel who volunteered to be our Guest Chefs next Sat. on June 16. More details to come.

Competitive Events Start Times

In order for coordinators of competitive events (e.g., Ladies Day, Men’s Day, Friday Partners, Donny’s Wed. Events and Sunday Mixed Round Robin) to set up play schedules for their events, it is necessary for players who sign up on Den to arrive 15 minutes prior to the event start time. Those who are not at the courts 15 minutes early may not be able to play if the court schedules have already been set up, so please come early.

Note: If you do not plan to play in an event, please uncheck the gray box for the event to remove your name from the list of players at least an hour prior to the event start time if at all possible or contact the event coordinator.

Donny’s Wed, Night Events. On June 16 Donny’s Wed Night events will return to the normal format: 4-6pm use the Paddle Up format and 6-8pm Don will set up the normal play. The Den is now open for registration for these events so sign up!
