New Board Members Added

I just wanted to send out a quick note in regards to the Litchfield Pickleball Association.
We would like to welcome two new board members; their terms will expire Dec 31st 2017
Janette Parker
John Poulos

As you may have read previously, we have now finalized the structure of the Board. This information is also on the web site.
President    Pete Burr
Secretary   Margaret Berg
Communication     Jean MacLeod
Member at Large    Janette Parker
Member at Large    John Poulos

In order for the association to run smoothly, we have additional folks, some that are not board members but play a vital role.
Dee Breton Treasurer
Bob Welch Web Master
Janette Parker Outreach
Pete Burr SUG

Looking ahead, the association has recently purchased a Tutor Pickleball machine. We anticipate having the machine in mid-September. Dianne Sylvester has formed a subcommittee and is working on a plan to submit to the Board of Directors on how this machine will be best used by the association. We will publish more on that as it becomes available.

WE NEED YOUR HELP in 3 areas
1. After you finish your game, take a moment to pick up the loose pickleballs and return them to the plastic tubs. This is not only for safety reasons but as a courtesy to the next players coming on the court (s)
2. Payment for your session. As you know the cost to play is $1.00 and we are asking that you try and pay with bills. I realize 4 quarters equals a dollar, but the change over time does create an additional burden for the treasurer. Your help would be appreciated.
3. Water. The association provides water for you to stay hydrated during the matches. However, we are finding open bottles, half full bottles, and empty bottles all left behind. Help us by taking your bottle either with you or deposit it in the trash. Let’s cut down on the waste.

It’s still great weather to get outside at Sawmill or up at the Rock.

Enjoy the game and if I can do anything don’t hesitate to let me or any of the board members know.
