A few details that didn’t fit on the flyer….
This will be a potluck, but please bring Covid friendly snacks to share (ie, not chips n dips).   We will have several food and beverage tables spread out as well at the pavilion to allow for social distancing.

There will be 2 courts of recreational play (2-on 2-off),  2 courts of competitive play (2-on 2-off), and 2 courts of “PLAY WITH A TOP DOG” for $10.  If you and a partner would rather challenge 2 the Top Dogs than partner with them, you will get your money back if you win!

Who are the Top Dogs?
Susie Deller
Brian Fairchild
Ryan Gilbert
Terry Otis
Vicki Sharp
Jana Spano
Sam Updike
Susan Volinkaty

  This event will be capped at the first 50 participants to sign up so we are asking everyone (even the Top Dogs) to pre-register at

This is going to be a lot of fun for all!  Please feel free to call with questions, comments or volunteer opportunities.  (775) 815-6858.
