Time sure flies and we’re already saying good bye to our winter neighbors. Again this year the club will be selling pickleballs for you to take to your summer home if you need them. See Jim Hamann (630-514-5614) if you want the dura 40, $10 for 6 or $20 for 12.
And when you return in the fall you will see (hopefully) the slope by court 4 repaired. In our recent vote the club chose to fund installation of an information board (79% voted yes) and repair of the slope by court 4 (82% voted yes). The information board design is still being finalized and will begin working its way through the HOA approval process. And the courts should be resurfaced by then as well.
You will also see changes in some of the club design. We will begin charging Membership Dues of $15/person for the playing year. While the dues will cover the cost of balls they are primarily being implemented as a tool to manage the membership list. Dues will be required to play in scheduled events, vote on club issues, and continue to remain on the mailing list. You can still play socially and have access to the blog (soon to be web page) without the dues.
There will be some minor changes in our player rating process but at this time the details are still being worked out.
The following invitation was received by a woman at Palm Creek so if you are interested in playing in tournaments she can help:
