    Good Evening Picklers!

    As you new President I'm hot to trot to SAFELY get Lessons, Round Robbins and Programs in place.  Our first board meeting will be Nov 6th, 11, Flagstone Room of the Prescott Armory.  During that meeting I'll be working to assign out Board Member Leads for Programs and Activities.  We've had some early volunteers (Keith and Helen Mayland for Lessons, and Rick Bothell for Court Maintenance.  My plan will be to receive board approval for our Covid Plan, Round Robbin Launch, Lessons Launch, and Activities (sure Helen has something planned). 

    As a former Aerospace CEO my philosophy was "Ready, Shoot, Aim"......and since this is NOT my first rodeo (I've built and started many clubs) that will be my philosophy with activities, programs and other related activities.  If we need to adjust and make changes based on member feedback, we'll do that "on the fly".

    I'll publish my first Board Agenda here in a day or two, so attend if you'd like, but get ready for a HOT start, and some accelerated learning.

    See everyone on the courts..........soon.

    PS  I'm still learning how to use everything, so bear with me if the website and updates look a bit funny for a short while.
