The AUGUST Board of Directors meeting was quite celebratory and exciting. After many many motions led by our Treasurer, Brian O’Kelly, that were necessary to complete the required steps we are now officially Incorporated. YEAH! A huge thank you to Jim Zeeb, for walking us through a very tedious process. This is a huge milestone for the Club. Those attending the meeting at Diana’s & Brian’s beautiful home ended the meeting with a champagne toast! Your NEW Club is now official and will be known as the “San Luis Obispo Pickleball Club, INC.”
Barbara Frantz has volunteered to be our Nominating Committee Chairperson for the 2018 elections. Barbara welcomes all those interested in volunteering for three Board positions for 2018 to email (preferred) her at . According to our new ByLaws, these are two-year commitment positions; President, Secretary, and one Director.
The SLOPB Club has been invited by the Central Coast Ambassadors Group and has volunteered to host a “local” fun tournament in April 2018. Please come to the September 12th meeting if you are interested in helping to organize/plan/coordinate our very first Tournament. More details will be discussed at the Board meeting. I know this may seem too early to start organizing, however, there are certain requirements from the City of SLO that need to be submitted 90 days in advance if we want to utilize the French Park venue.
Bootcamp for 4.0’s & 3.5’s – IF you do not know where you are you may refer to the appropriate skill assessment sheet and “self-rate”. Brett Noel from Paso Robles is asking for emails if you are interested so that he has an idea of how many would like to sign-up. The Flyers are on the web site. You may email with any questions.
We only need 16 from SLO to host at our venue.
Please join your fellow Pickleball Players after play on Tuesday – August 22nd at California Pizza Kitchen in honor of five-month-old JACE – Terri Monell’s grandson who is at Stanford with a rare blood condition. California Pizza Kitchen is contributing 20% of all dinners purchased in honor of JACE.
Our new three-fold brochure will soon be printed! Thank you, Betsy Asmus, for all the work to make this a great hand-out tool for our Club. It is beautiful!
Mark your calendars . . . November 2nd ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – TIME & PLACE TBD.
NEXT BOARD MEETING – September 12, 2017 – 5:00 PM – 2221 King Ct. #38 – SLO!
