Unspookable????

See these folks. They’re the “Unspookables” who brushed aside any spooks at the courts today.

We missed a lot of our folks for our Halloween event this year, who are about to return to IRCC or are pandemic-home-bound. But we had four courts going this Halloween morning, sweeping away the spooks and playing some solid PB. As more of you return and join in, we’ll all enjoy the program this season that much more. So, stay tuned for announcements of forthcoming pickleball events.

Oh, as the mornings are getting cooler, we’re starting Open Play at 9am rather than 8am, beginning tomorrow, Sunday, 11/01. Then, starting the next week when the courses open, we usually switch Tuesday/Thursday Open Play from mornings to afternoons at 4-6pm. Of course, as democratic as we can be, we’d like to know if you have any preference in this regard, or whether we do some mornings and/or afternoons. Just send us your comments via email: rsmithsmm@verizon.net.

Really Spooky Times……

Here’s last year’s spooks:

You’d think there’s enough reasons to be spooky these days, in the middle of a pandemic. But we need to be brave and show that pickleballers take this all in stride and can unleash their own spooks. So, our Halloween show goes on as scheduled 9-11am on Saturday, October 31. While keeping our required distance from each other, and masking as required, we can have much fun with pickleball round-robin play, enjoying a juice/snack bar while watching our own spooks show their stuff ( yes, outrageous spook-dress is encouraged).

Play goes on……

This happy group a couple of weeks ago has grown in numbers and satisfaction.

Folks, the pre-season season is under way this last week, with some impressive play among a growing number of players. Let’s keep it up this week, with Open Play this Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 8am (until the weather cools further). Let us know if you’ll join in one or more days by emailing: rsmithsmm@verizon.net

Are you here now?

These are the sturdy souls that played during the mid-summer heat; they’re looking for some challenging competition.

If you are, we need you on the courts for Open Play on Tuesday, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sunday mornings. The weather’s trending cooler so we’re starting play at 8 AM. So, let us know which days you’ll be playing during the balance of this week, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, via return comment to: rsmithsmm@verizon.net
