PickleBall Fix: January15,2021

The January schedule of organized play resumed on Monday, January 11 with morning lessons followed by a special shootout at 1pm attended by Pickleball Den administrators. 30 players on the 6 courts played two rounds of 4 games in each round. It was fun to use our mobile devices to enter scores and see the progress of the shootout. Den personnel also provided gifts for a raffle at the end of the shootout to complete an enjoyable day. Thanks to Steve Fortin, our TPPC tech guru, who organized the event that demonstrated the Den shootout mobile system.

Reminder: Please follow suggested CDC guidelines and quarantine for required time periods. Club officers strongly advise wearing a mask off the courts, social distancing, using hand sanitizer, and leaving the courts when your game is over. Players must continue to sign up for all events on the Den to continue contact tracing.

Kathi’s K9 Charity Event

In the past the TPPC has made donations to help Kathi’s K9 animal rescue. At the end of February Kathi's is having a garage sale to support their work. They are looking for items (e.g furniture, clothing, animal items, etc.) that people would be willing to donate for the sale. If you have an item to donate, please contact Cathi Ellingson, a TPPC member, who will arrange for pick-up (414-217-0232). Thank you for considering this worthwhile cause.

2021 Dues Payment

Note that if you have just returned to Timber Pines, you must pay your 2021 dues in order to sign up for events on the Den. Forms are on the Lodge Bulletin Board and can be dropped in the Pickleball Box at the Courts with $10 dues (cash or check to TPPC).

Watch for Coach’s Corner next week. Stay safe! See you at the Courts!
