Pickleball Session - Friday, June 18, 2011

We had a nice day, 11 players and plenty of action including an outburst from yon editor for which I offer my apologies. So, here we go with the important stuff. Players: Steve, Mike, Gary, Gary A, Jan, Bob H, Bob T, Peter P, Lynne, Sharon and Ron. We battled on for 3 hr 15 min, thought the crowd was somewhat diminished after the 2-1/2 hour mark.

We finished off the day with several 'A' games with well-matched teams and consequently - hard fought games. "Best of three? How about one more?" News: Cupcake bought a new paddle and didn't like it. Gary tried it out then offered her a whopping $4 for it. It's on its way back to the dealer. Gowers courts are now supposed to be ready in July. Ho-hum.  Smoke, of the Lake Lure P'ballers has been in contact with the UPG  Interstate Sorta' Competition Committee. He is interested in bringing down some of the crew for an informal p'ball session. Will keep you advised. See you next Summer. Spike.
