Change is in the Air

 

 

Hello fellow pickleballers. With the change of seasons we are also seeing some changes to the Invermere Pickleball Club board composition, as well as bringing play indoors for the fall and winter months.

 

Let me start by introducing myself and the other members of this year’s board. I have been volunteered into the position of board president (crafty move there Ray), and I am looking forward to bringing my passion as a new player to the sport and building upon the great work that has been done to-date to develop the club, grow membership, elevate sportsmanship, and most of all help create a fun atmosphere for play at all skill levels.

 

This year’s board is comprised of:

 

Mike Bader – President

Ray Schoepfer – Vice President, Skills Development Coordinator

Sheila Stevenson – Treasurer/Memberships

Nancy Wilfley - Secretary

Pamela Ison Reilander - Events Coordinator

John Hague - Communications

Cathy Howard - Hosts

 

The board would like to welcome all the new members that joined this year, as well as thank returning members for their continued support. Also, a big thank you to those members that helped get the word out and grow our roster of active players. We are 165 members strong (and continue to grow!). On that, just a quick reminder that membership is predicated on having some form of longer-term residency in the valley and for the time being we still have a no-guest policy in place while we all learn to live with the ins and outs of our Covid-restricted world.

 

Speaking of Covid, as we move from the wonderful world of outdoor play at Pine Ridge and Copper Point, and into the Columbia Lake Rec Centre, there are a few guidelines we need to bring to your attention:

 

  • Please avoid coming to the facility if you are having any symptoms of illness
  • Please enter through the front doors of the Rec Centre, pay your fees and go directly into the hallway between the courts
  • Change outdoor shoes into indoor shoes
  • Please do not use gates and enter courts from the North and South entrances.
  • Lockers and showers are not available
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer
  • Bring your own equipment
  • Book your spot for each day you’d like to play through SignUp Genius (John will send out a separate note on that)
  • We will be monitoring the number of players wanting to participate and will expand play times as demand dictates

 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to myself or any fellow board members if you have any questions. Stay healthy, play safe, and have fun.

 

Mike Bader

He is deserving of the award because of his on court attitude and willingness to play with all players regardless of ability. This is a trophy that every player should strive to achieve.
