PickleBall Fix

Welcome to those members who have just returned in the last week. Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with lots of good food enjoyed with family and friends. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian colleagues.

It’s hard to believe that December is coming up this week which means a few pickleball Dec. schedule changes.

Reminder: Please park golf carts in the more than 20 spaces on the far side of the Pavilion next to the construction site. Parking for cars is a priority in the blacktop area spaces.


On Monday, Nov 29, and Wednesday, Dec 1, membership renewal will take place again from 10-12 noon in the Main Room at the Lodge. 2022 membership forms can also be picked up at the Courts behind the Bulletin Board. Fill them out and place them with $10 dues in the PB Box at the Courts.

Note: Pam Asbel will also take TPPC shirt orders on Monday, Nov 29 at the Lodge from 10-12. This is the last day to see these great shirts and place an order! If you have questions, please contact Pam at pkasbel@gmail.com or call 612-644-2807 and leave a message.

Current membership total is 891 members. New members for 2022 is 94. 404 members have renewed and 383 have not renewed yet.
