Grand Games Tournament 5.0

I need to clarify the levels in the upcoming in-house tournaments.  There is a 5.0 Men’s, Women’s and Mixed division.  Sorry for any misunderstanding.

Less than two weeks left to sign up for the in house event

As of today, we have 72 players signed up.  We have zero novice teams signed up for any of the days and only 1 team signed up at the 2.5 level.  The 4.5 -5.0 level is just at 2 teams in men’s and 1 in mixed doubles.

This is a nice way to play competitively without the pressure of a big tournament.  For $20, you get a nice t-shirt, play some games and could even win a medal.  

Registration forms are on our website and located in each breezeway and bulletin board.  You can drop off the forms in the mailbox located in the pickleball pavilion.

Last day to register is March 5, 2019

Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

Thanks

Swiping in at the Pickleball Courts and Skill Level Drop in

  1. As everyone knows, it is a CAM requirement to swipe your CAM card each time you use the pickleball courts.  If your card does not work, then we need to know about it to get it fixed.  Please email me if this is the case.  Mike O’Meara brought up a good point during the February club members meeting.  He said that we bought the swipe card machines, but did not buy the cards that are made for this type of machine as CAM requires us to use their cards.  This means that the CAM cards do not totally line up with the card readers.  This is why you have to swipe your card slowly and bend it slightly towards your left side.  Again, if you still can not swipe in, then email me.
  2. Skill level drop in are for those individuals who are at that skill level.  These drop ins are not for lower rated club members to get better, they are for like skilled club members to compete against each other.  You have to be playing in that skill level ladder, are rated that level by the USAPA or have been rated by our club skill level committee.  If you are not any of these, then please do not attend higher skill level drop in. listed below are the skill level drop in schedules.  Each are from noon – 2 PM

Monday – 3.0
Tuesday 2.5
Wednesday 4.0
Thursday 3.5
Friday 4.5 +
Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

Thanks

I’m Asking For Your Help

Please see below a forwarded message concerning fellow club members Mary and Charlie Ortmann.

Thanks
Troy
Dear friends,

Some of you may be unaware that my husband, Charlie is in stage 4 kidney failure. He has been on dialysis for the past 10 months and is hoping for a kidney transplant.  I need to make as many people as possible aware of his need for a kidney donor. This will maximize the chances that a compatible altruistic person will come forward.

This is where you can help. I’m asking you to read the enclosed letter and then forward it. Please forward it to as many friends and relatives (especially grown children) of yours as possible, asking them to forward it to their friends and relatives. The idea is to spread the word about kidney donation and Charlie’s situation far and wide.

I’m confident that someone out there will take our message to heart and donate a kidney to my beloved Charlie.

If you have any difficulty opening a hyperlink in the letter, copy and paste it to your browser.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Mary
This is the most difficult letter I have ever had to write. As you may know Charlie has been suffering from renal disease for the past 20 years and now he is in END STAGE RENAL DISEASE and requires DIALYSIS to live.
 
My remarkable husband is a sensational father, grandfather, and friend, as well as my hiking partner and the most wonderful man who can fix or mend anything around the house. He is full of life and he has a lot more living to do.
 
Currently he is strong enough and has been placed on the kidney transplant list. His dialysis wears his body down, especially his heart.  He will not be able to hold out for 5 years waiting for a transplant; time is not on his side. The answer is a living kidney donation. He really wants to live. And I am really hoping that you can help.
 
LIVING DONATION is a voluntary gift of one kidney (we only need one). It is a safe, proven laparoscopic procedure which can be done immediately. Donors are tested thoroughly to ensure SAFE and HEALTHY outcomes. Medical expenses, travel, lodging, and work time lost by the donor may be covered. The transplant will take place at the Mayo Clinic Arizona, one of the highest-rated hospitals for living donation.
 
Charlie’s blood type is O. He can only receive from an O donor. We have blood type testing kits available. Donors must be free of kidney disease, heart attack, diabetes, cancer, kidney stones, high blood pressure, and obesity.

HEALTHY PEOPLE OF ALL AGES CAN DONATE
 
I know Kidney donation is not right for everyone. Many cannot donate, or choose not to. But I ask you to SPREAD THE WORD. Send this message to as many people as you know. Learning about living donation will save Charlie’s life and the lives of others with kidney diseases.
