Contribution to the Bill Maitland Memorial Fund

The Angel Fire Pickleball Club has demonstrated their generosity.  The club was challenged by the Angel Fire Divas to top their contribution to the National Veterans Wellness Center in memory of our dear friend Bill Maitland.  And they stepped up to the challenge.  $315 was raised for this worthy cause.  Thanks for all who contributed!

Ladder Play

Ladder play starts this week for those who signed up.  We have limited group time in the Community Center this week, so do your best to get with your group and schedule a time to play your match.  Remember, 3 games to 15, each individual playing with each other player.  If you need a 4th, contact Rick.  If it doesn’t happen this week, don’t worry, just do it next week.  The Community Center is now available on Thursday night (1/22) but unavailable Saturday (1/24)  this week.
