President’s Monthly Message & News for December, 2016

Webmaster (Jim Zeeb) : December 29, 2016 10:07 pm : News


Following up these wishes, we had our annual Holiday Ugly Sweater, Pickleball Play Date, and Pot Luck!  WOW!  What a great turn out!  Because we had so many Pickler’s come out to play (35!) we had to limit the games to “first to reach 7 by two points.”  I want to also acknowledge other Ambassadors in attendance and thank them for coming.  Thank you Kathy Thomas from Morro Bay and Jos Hilden from Cambria!   

What a FEAST!  We have some very talented gourmet cooks amongst us.  I already gained my 10# limit and it’s only December 13th!   Thank you so very much to all who contributed to the success of this POT LUCK & FUN DAY.  The weather cooperated and it was a gorgeous day to play PB!   Judi Boscaro made the “fig & cheese pinwheels.”  They were so delicious!  Also, I’d like to acknowledge those who quietly and “behind the scenes” helped to make this a fantastic success!  You know who you are!  Congratulations to all those who participated in the Ugly Sweater contest – several received Club purchased prizes for their efforts, but John Stocksdale took the prized Santa Claus trophy for his pickleball decorated sweater!  (Save it for next year, John, to pass on!)

News from the December Board Meeting:

  • Votes for the Club Logo were completed and our WebMaster posted the results to the website and Facebook that evening.
  • Betsy Asmus has volunteered to join the ByLaws Committee with John Stocksdale & Bobbi Binder.  Betsy has already volunteered to be the Chair for the Publicity Committee.  If you have any news/views, etc. to help promote our club, be sure to let Betsy know!
  • Jim Zeeb has volunteered to work towards getting the Club set up as a non-profit.
  • Jean Hyduchak reported that the Pickleball Lining of the French Park Tennis Court will take place sometime in January.  She has worked diligently with the Parks & Rec folks to make this happen.  Thank you, Jean!  Stay tuned for the exact date, etc. when we will begin playing on our added venue!
