Pickleball Tournament

This past weekend was the annual pickleball tournament which is one of the biggest sporting events of the season.  The weather this year just didn’t cooperate, however.  Play continued on Saturday in spite of prevailing winds which obviously made play more difficult, but Sunday rains shut down the event.  I’m sure the park newsletter will have photos of tournament winners and medals….but there are many behind the scenes volunteers that deserve a lot of credit for the success of this event.

I happened to be in the area when the rains started Sunday and found a dry spot under a tree near the action.  Hats off to the hard work of Edie Preis and her crew for the fast action they took in getting the cooking crew under shelter.  Despite the rain, the food stayed fresh and hot under the direction of these volunteers who never missed a beat.  Flashbacks of “the band played on” come to mind.

Congratulations to all for a well organized event in spite of the weather!
