OCTOBER COURT USAGE REPORT Steve Fortin, Club Webmaster, summarized usage on the PARC courts for October. Some highlights include: --Total sign-ups for October were 2563. --The top five (5) most popular event type sign-ups: Open play (978). Advanced and Intermediate Levels were about the same (280 each), Next Paddle Up (614), Sat. Cookouts (229), Self-Directed Play (102), and Donny’s Wed. Night social play (94). Other favorites were Ladies & Men’s events (102) and Partners play (94).The influx of snowbird members will cause these numbers to rise so remember to sign up when you want to play.

OTHER ITEMS --Thanks to Karen and Gary Ellis and Kathy Graap, our guest chefs for last week’s cookout, who treated 60 attendees to tasty pasta, peppers and sausage, to attending members who brought their favorite dishes, and to those who volunteered to help. --Reminder: Several members have been looking for items left at the Courts. Check the Courts lost/found boxes at each shade area. You may find what you lost! --Unsign yourself from a Den event you are not going to play in so that others can sign up. --How to Squeegee Wet Courts. This morning the courts were quite wet at 9am when the courts are usually busy. To see how best to quickly remove water from wet Courts after a rain, check out the YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adST-woMHvI. Note that the squeegee should be WET not dry when you are using it to remove the water. The court then dries much faster. See you at the Courts!
