The Board meeting for March has been reschedule to April 3rd. This will also serve as the April meeting.
The agenda and location will be posted about March 27th.
Bring your 💗Valentine (and yourself) to Meadow Park on Feb 14th Wednesday for a special VALENTINE’S 💕SWEET 💕TREAT 💕PLAY activity. There is no “love” in pickleball like there is in tennis so we have to get creative. 💕 Play pickleball on Valentine’s Day at Meadow courts.
These clinics are 4 Thursdays in February. $80.
Someone go and then bring back some tips to the club members!!

See you on the courts!
We now have a calendar of upcoming pickleball tournaments in and around SLO. This can be accessed from the Calendar web page.
This lists the dates, location and description of the tournament and will also let you know how to get additional info on the tournament. Be sure to use the Agenda view of the calendar for the best results.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO ALL SLOPB CLUB MEMBERS & PLAYERS
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:
