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.

Seventy two players from all around northern Nevada gathered at the Carson City MAC for good play, new friendships and to raise money towards building dedicated outdoor pickleball courts in the Carson City area.
From entry fees and donations from area players, a whopping $3,018.96 was raised on Saturday! Way to go players.
Big thanks to all the players, staff at the MAC, USAPA area ambassadors and many volunteers who made this event great!
Points were taken from all the games and proportioned to average the score of each player from that community. The two players from Minden/Gardnerville averaged 9.375 points per game. Way to go Robin Nolte and William Harris!
