More Forlorner - Friday Pickleball - 10/28/2011

OK. Three showed up for p'ball on this Friday: Steve, Gary A and Jan. They, played 'Canadian Doubles' until they wore themselves out, then departed. There are good reasons why some people haven't been showing up, but we won't list them here. Too boring for this very exciting missive. But, fear not - our numbers will start increase soon as our members recover from surgery, the flu, beriberi, other ailments and when folks return from their travels.

Gary A has taken over the responsibility of buying more pickleballs as our supply is almost depleted. Each players will be assessed $10 and should pay up pronto because Gary A has ordered and paid for the balls. (The $10 fee is not a donation and the amount is not optional). The balls we are using now, in various stages of wear, and the new batch, will last us about one year. Cheap enough, don't you think? No response is necessary, because we all know the answer.

We are in the FALLBALL SEASON, so the sessions now start at 1:00PM. Even late sleepers should be able to get their carcases to the courts. Yes!

See you on Tuesday, 11/1/11/@ 1

Back in the groove (almost) - Pickleball session - Tue, 10/18/2011

Yon reporter, reported in today after a 3 week leave of absence. Great to see 9 UPGers hard at it on a beautiful day at Gower: Players: Jan, Steve, Lynne, Carol, Peter, Johnny, Gary, Mike and Bob T (welcome back from your travels). Also on hand was a potential new addition to the UPG - George.
Watching the games was hard work, but fun never-the-less. Plenty of action and even a hint of merriment! George had a chance to practice at singles; looks like a good prospect. We can always use more players. Of note: Ralph has had his back surgery and reports that he's On The Road Again. He's doing fine and thanks all those who wished him well. If you didn't wish him well - then, you are up the creek.
For those of you who like to keep track of the number of your pickleball sessions - you are in luck. Stevo has kept a tally of all of the unreported sessions. The UPG Publications Division has posted the information in the 5 BLOGS preceding this post. Thank Steve next time you get a chance. If he didn't keep track of the sessions your individual playing session records would have been unavoidably lost to history.

Also: We will be collecting money from all active players for our ball fund. Watch your email for the the exciting notification.
