Club News: Aug 30, 2020  

Hello All Members
Starting Monday, August 31 we are moving to our fall schedule with club play running from 9:30AM to Noon, Monday through Friday. We will continue outdoor play at Pineridge into October and will decide our last day of play closer to the end of the season with weather being the determining factor.
Currently, our indoor venue is closed. It is reported that the board of the Columbia Lake Recreation Center is waiting till mid September to decide on when and how they will re-open. As such, we are not able to make any plans for indoor play at this time. Please be assured that our club executive will be watching developments closely in order to organize play as soon as possible.
Our current executive is made up of volunteers that were invited by our founding members. During the past few months they were busy with organizing the club and setting up play for our challenging spring and summer. We feel our club has grown large enough now that we are ready for an elected executive that we can chose at our first AGM.
We would like to hold our first AGM on Saturday September 19th at 11:30, outdoors, at the Pineridge courts. Should the weather be really bad, we will reschedule. At this meeting, the current executive will introduce our suggested bylaws and other club documents and allow all members to vote to accept them as is or possibly make some amendments and then accept the amended documents. As well, we will hold full elections for a new executive.
We will send out an AGM package in the next week or so with the documents mentioned along with an agenda and any other pertinent information. As well, if you have not paid your club fees yet, we will be accepting payments at the AGM. Also, if you are not a club member, you can signup here as well. Please make an effort to come and participate in your clubs first AGM.
Finally, we would like to announce the winner of the second annual Sportsmanship Award that has been sponsored by Tom Wilkinson and Jan Guenigsman. This year’s recipient is Randy Baker. 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. Randy always has a smile on his face, is happy and fun to play with.

We would also like to give a special thank you to Tom and Jan as well as all the volunteer hosts that have worked hard to make our club a fun and safe group.
See everyone at our first AGM on Saturday, September 19th at 11:30AM.
Ray Schoepfer
Interim President

GOOD NEWS!

Following Provincial Covid 19 guidelines we are able to return to “Drop-In” Pickleball Club Play and the elimination of pre-signup with Signup Genius.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursday from 8:30am-11:30am at Pine Ridge Park.

Upon arrival, everyone will need to sign in with a Host.
The Host will have a signup sheet that has the health questions about Covid Symptoms and a copy of the waiver. When players sign, they affirm that they are not sick and accept the waiver.
Social distancing, handwashing, sterilization of equipment will still be required. Bring your own wipes and hand sanitizers.

The key to keeping things going are HOSTS. We need Hosts for signing in members. Please contact Pam Ison Reilander at briarridge@shaw.ca to schedule days you would like to volunteer as a host. Starting as early as Friday, July 24 and any day thereafter. Scheduled play times will be determined by the volunteering members, and since a Host is required for every scheduled Club play-time, please sign up well in advance.

Club play at Copper Point has been suspended due to lack of participation. Members are still welcome to play at Copper Point, but they will be required to book play times in advance through the Academy (the Driving Range) at 250-341-3393.
