    The weather is not being nice to us outdoor pickle enthusiasts!  Nevertheless, some RR's have found a nice day for Championship week competition.  I'll post them as the reports are sent in.

    Tuesday 2.5 - Perfect for the month that includes Valentine's Day, a husband and wife team, Kim and Bill Friend, qualified for the Championship as partners.  They played against Colleen Fier and Darrell Rommel.  And it was a great match!  Colleen and Darrell took an early lead, then the Friend's battled back to tie at 11.  After some great play, Bill and Kim pulled away to win with a final score of 15 - 12.    

    Monday 4.0+ - The Top Gun group had a double elimination tournament last week to determine the "Top Gun of the Month" for February.  Bill Meardy and Chris Hannon took first place!

    Monday 3.0 - A sunny day was a welcome change from the stormy January and February stretch!  Frank Zolnierowicz finished first with an almost perfect score for the day.  Close behind were Marjie White (2nd), Thomas Rice (3rd) and Jeff Darling (4th).  Frank and Jeff took an early lead and never let it go, winning 15 - 3.        

    Friday 3.0 - Headline News:  Joe Riley and Jim Crum defeat Leslie Clewett and Paul Summers in Pioneer Park 3.0 Battle to the Death!!  The sun came out - FINALLY - and everyone was ready to play.  The pre-games were close, exciting, and intense.  The Championship followed this pattern with several great shots as well as several lead changes.  In the end, Joe and Jim were victorious with a final score of 15 - 13.

    This past Saturday was our Valentine's Day celebration pickleball competition.  Perhaps it should have been called Polar Pickle, since it was VERY cold, especially if you weren't playing.

    Nevertheless, we had 40 hardy souls show up to play 5 matches with different partners, drink some warm beverages, eat some doughnut holes or other snack, and, for five lucky participants, win some prizes.

    Generally, a good time was had by all!

    Mark your calendars now: we're intending to have our next event on April 1st, aka April Fool's Day, so who knows what will happen.
