    Monday 3.0+:   It was a toasty morning out on the courts for this August 3.0+ championship game.  Chris Snowdon was trying out the 3.0+ group and demonstrated that he is just passing through and won all six games. Bob Fleckenstein was six points behind, taking second place. Three players each scored 57 points in six games. Mike Doyle and Marjie White played in the championship round taking third and fourth place.  There was lots of excellent play with well placed shots, heroic “gets” and exciting rallies. Bob and Mike played well and gave Chris and Marjie a true battle but couldn’t overtake their lead. Chris and Marjie won 15–11 as the peanut gallery cheered from the shade. 

    Tuesday 3.5+:   It was a hot sunny day. Desert tortoise were seeking shelter in their shells. Desert cacti would welcome any stray animal with a full bladder. The town was silent, except for the few, the proud and the sweaty who showed up for the elusive end-of--the-month-PPA-3.5-Round-Robin-Tuesday-10am-championships.  The eight sun soaked warriors battled until only four stood.  Tony Picoweitz and Tim Wenzel took on Duane Basore and Daniel Lawson. The play on court was hotter than a jalapeno's armpit. In the end, Dwayne and Daniel were awarded the Hot Tamale Kings of the Court.  Congratulations to Dwayne and Daniel. 

    Tuesday 2.5: The teams were Frank Araneo & Andrea Schmidlin vs. Kevin Michels & Suzanne  McCall.  The game was literally a game of 2 halves with an exciting conclusion.  Suzanne and Kevin made it look as though they were going to run away from the other team through great serves along with offensive and defensive plays.  They were leading 8-1, when they switched sides.  After changing servers, Andrea served 7 straight winning points and tied the game at 8-8.  Fyi... wind was not a factor.  The teams than battled the remainder of the game with Suzanne and Kevin  leading 13-12 but Andrea and Frank came back to win the game 15-13.  Great competitive game!  Congratulations to all four finalists and ultimate winners Suzanne and Frank! 


    Thursday 3.5:  After two months of blazing hot weather the 3.5 group was finally able to play a championship game! The teams were comprised of Sam Sar/Otto Rolwing against Ed Sheldon/Jeff Darling. Both teams were evenly matched with lots of drop shots, long rallies, and just overall great play.  In the end the score of 15-12 found Jeff and Ed as the champions!

    Friday 3.0: Another beautiful day at Pioneer Park with low wind.  John McKay & Sarah Watts both had perfect averages of 11.  John McAllister & Debbie Kullas had the next highest averages.  Teams were John McKay & Debbie Kullas vs Sarah Watts & John McAllister.  Great play on both sides with long volleys and some great blocks.  The score was close until Sarah and John were able to take the lead and win 15 to 10.
