    December 28, 2021

    Good afternoon everyone,

    JOHN ERICKSON

    I am sorry to report that John Erickson lost his battle with cancer on Sunday, December 26. John and his wife, Sue, were two of the original pickleball players in Loveland. Those of us that knew John remember that he always had a big smile on his face and was always happy to see you. He will be missed by everyone that came in contact with him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sue and the family as they go through this difficult time.

     

    END OF THE YEAR

    I will send my final end-of-the-year report to the membership next week. It has been another amazing year and it has been great to get to know you all and enjoy our time together on the courts.

    SUMMER CLINICS

    We will begin registration for summer clinics within the next few weeks. We are nearly finalized on plans for three separate sets of clinics again this year.  Wendy Rexroth and Daniel Smith will be leading the initial pickleball camp the weekend of April 30 – May 1. Sarah Ansboury is planning to come back in 2022 and we hope to have her in June this year. Justin Hamel will bring his championship-winning style in late July or August.

    All of our camps and clinics typically sell out very quickly, so be watching for the details when they come out.  Remember, your membership must be current to be able to register for the clinics!

    USED PADDLES

    I know that Santa brought some of you a new paddle for Christmas and that you might now have an extra paddle.  There are always new people learning to play the game that are in need of gently used paddles. If you have one of those and would like to sell it, please let me know.

    PICKLEBALL CLASSES

    Registration is open for people interested in learning how to play the game. Level 1 – Basic Pickleball Skills and Level 2 Mentored Play classes are now open for enrollment through the Chilson Center. Classes consist of four, two-hour sessions and cost $40 per person. The January classes are nearly full, but there is still plenty of room in the February Level 1 classes. February Level 2 classes are full.

    Contact the Chilson front desk at 970-962-2386 for more information.

    SUMMER PICKLEBALL LEAGUES

    The Parks Department is currently working on putting together plans for pickleball league play again this summer. If you have any thoughts and ideas for a format that you would like to see, please contact me as soon as possible. We’re planning to run three separate sessions again this summer, each session will be five weeks long.

    MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

    The first renewal notices began going out to members on December 18. You will receive a notice two weeks prior to your expiration date and again 24 hours prior.  Your membership will lapse on your membership date if you have not renewed by then. You will receive one final notice thirty days past your lapsed date and will be dropped from the membership roles after that. Please be sure to get your membership renewed on a timely basis so that you don’t miss out on any of the news from the Club.

    NEW YEARS PICKLEBALL RESOLUTIONS

    By Frank Cerabino

    1. I will not blame the wind every time I hit a drop-shot into the net – especially when playing indoors.
    2. I will call kitchen-line foot faults against myself at all times during rec play (until the score reaches 8.)
    3. I will not hit a hard smash directly at a vulnerable opponent who hasn’t already left a red mark on me during the same game.
    4. I will avoid taking issue with an opponent’s line call, and if that’s not possible, I will avoid saying something like, “Even Stevie Wonder would have called that in!”
    5. I will be kind to new players learning the game, because you never know: One day one of them might be your orthopedic surgeon.
    6. I will not pretend to inspect the ball for cracks after I muff an easy return.
    7. I will not judge a book by its cover, but if I find myself playing against somebody who has one of those suction cups on the end of the paddle handle, I will keep the ball low.
    8. When playing pickleball with somebody who stops play to answer cell phone calls on the court, I will not derisively refer to that person as “Prime Minister” for the rest of the session.
    9. I will spend less time watching YouTube pickleball videos while on Zoom calls at work.
    10. I will not buy more than three paddles this year, unless I win the lottery or improve my skill rating by more than half-a-point.

    See you on the courts!

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

    Twas the day before Christmas and out on the courts

    Were all types of people in tennies and shorts.

    All of them beaming and shouting with joy, happy as children with a new Christmas toy.

    Out of their bags, colorful paddles appeared. To the kitchen they scurried, lined up, and cheered.


    Let's dink it and drop it, let's volley and kill. The balls started bouncing as if without will.

    The sound from the paddles and balls as they rose, moved all of the players to the tips of their toes.

    Cross court and forward, balls had started to fly when appeared an old player with a wink in his eye.

    Dressed all in red from his head to his toe, a smile on his face and a warm, cheery glow.


    “0-0-2” he shouted as he served me the ball. He moved like the wind, barely saw him at all.

    Then all of a sudden, it was 11 to 0. As we lightly touched paddles, he said he must go.

    Before I asked where, he disappeared in a haze, but I heard his farewell while still in my daze

    "Keep playing and laughing and having your fun. Merry Pickleball to all, my work here is done!

     

    See you on the courts!

    Good morning everyone!

    JERRY GREEN

    For those who may not have yet heard the sad news, we lost another longtime member of the Northern Colorado Pickleball community last week. Jerry Green passed away after a long battle with cancer.

    Many of Jerry's friends are planning a Memorial Extravaganza on October 24 at Spring Canyon in Jerry's honor.

    Join us for some great pickleball and friends sharing stories about Jerry. This will be a Northern Colorado regional event for all of Jerry's friends and acquaintances.

    Bring some food to share (pot luck style) and whatever beverages you'll enjoy. 

    We will run a paddle stack style event with courts designated for 2.5-3.0 beginner, 3.5 intermediate and 4.0+ advanced.

    Proceeds will go towards a memorial bench or plaque to commemorate Jerry's contribution to the pickleball community.

    NORCO PICKLEBALL

    The Open House at NORCO last Tuesday was a great success! I'm still waiting on final numbers from NORCO, but I believe there were nearly 300 people that came to participate or observe. Great crowd!

    Thanks to all of you that volunteered your time and talents to assist in the event. It wouldn't have been as successful without you!

    Please click on the link below for more information on Tuesday and Thursday open play and a Friday evening league at NORCO.

    VACATION

    I will be gone for the next two weeks as Julie and I travel to Maine for some sailing and to Boston for Julie to run in the 125th Boston Marathon. Wish her good luck as she participates in one of the world's premier running events!

    Contact Sandy Thayer at sandythayersells@gmail.com with any questions. Simon ball machine is at Sandy's house and is available for those members who would like to check it out for a day.

    Good morning everyone!

    THANK-YOU EMAIL

    The new courts at Osborn turned out beautifully. If you haven’t had a chance to play there yet, give it a try sometime! It would be very nice for everyone in the Club to send a short Thank-You email to Elizabeth Kayl for making the courts happen.  Elizabeth is the Director of the Parks and Recreation Depart, the BIG cheese! The final cost for the new courts is approaching $250,000 and without Elizabeth and her entire team, that money would not have been spent on pickleball courts.

    So please take a moment to send a brief thank-you to her at:

    Elizabeth. Kayl@cityofloveland.org

    PARKS DEPARTMENT LEAGUE

    There is still plenty of room for more teams to sign up for the final session of the Parks Department Saturday morning league that begins on August 21.  Registration ends next week, so sign up soon if you want to play.  I also have one player looking for a partner, so let me know if you are a single and looking to play.

    PICKLEPALS AND CLUB TOURNAMENT

    There is still lots of room for players in the PicklePals and Club Tournament that is scheduled for Friday, September 17 and Saturday, September 18.  PicklePals and Mixed Doubles on Friday, Men’s Doubles and Women’s Doubles on Saturday.  Register on our website.

    All players MUST be LPC members!

    A LOSS IN OUR FAMILY

    I’m sorry to report that Kim Normandin’s husband, Pat, passed away on Tuesday, August 10. Many of you know Kim from coaching many sessions of PickleSkills every summer. Our sincere condolences go out to Kim and her family.

    SAVE THE DATE!

    We are working on our next project to provide additional courts for playing time. This time, we’re working on Indoor Courts! NORCO Volleyball is a 60,000 square foot facility in NE Loveland that has the ability to provide up to 10 indoor courts.

    NORCO and the Loveland Pickleball Club are teaming up to host an Open House on Tuesday, September 21 at their facility. We’ll have ten courts set up all day and evening for all of you to come out and see and play.

    Lots more details as we get closer, but mark the date on your calendar and plan to come out to see this really cool new option for indoor play this winter!

    2022 BOARD OF DIRECTORS

    Summer is winding down and that means it’s time to be looking forward and planning 2022. As you all know, the Club has had another year of explosive growth.  We’ve had more than 250 new players join the Club this year and our total membership currently stands at 574.

    As the Club grows, it is critical that we maintain and build on the programs that have been so popular year after year. PickleSkills, Ladder Play, Mentored Play, Tournaments and just regular playing times. But those things don’t just happen on their own. It takes a lot of volunteers to help teach, coach and organize the activities.

    We need people interested in serving on the Board of Directors. We need people willing to help coach at PickleSkills and we need people willing to help mentor new players at our Mentored sessions.  We need volunteers to help plan and execute our Spring Mixer and our September tournament.

    That means YOU! I would like to see everyone volunteer in some capacity. With 500+ people helping, all of the jobs become much easier!

    Please let me or any of the members of the Board know where you are available to help!

    BOARD RESIGNATION

    Jeff Ludwig has resigned his position as Secretary on the Board of Directors of the Club. We thank Jeff for his hard work and dedication to pickleball and to the Loveland Pickleball Club.


    See you on the courts
