Fantastic Freaky Friday!

Too busy to do a head count and forgot to do a group picture, but Freaky Friday was a great way to start out this membership year Friday evening at Hidden Valley Courts! We guessed 50+ players came out on a gorgeous late summer night.

Good play, good fun, good food and good times.  Raffle tickets were given for each player that brought food, dressed freaky, or brought a friend. Gift certificates to Pickleball Central were given to four lucky ticket holders.

Board members did not draw the four tickets out of a bucket, but three board members did win a gift certificate.

 

 

 

Winners of the gift certificates: Tom Murtha, Netto Montoya, Paul Kocher, and Karen Wallis.

Thanks to all who came, played, visited and ate! Next events will be added to the Events page and we will keep you posted.
