THANK YOU TO ALL

For the first time we had a designated Medical Team headed by Trisha Kelly and Marg Ouimet. A big thank you to all of you who volunteered to wear the “Green Vest”. The “on the court” emergencies and “off the court” reminders to help keep people healthy were a great help to all


Our thanks to Donna Christiansen and her team for keeping all the events moving


Andy Schmaltz who once again sequenced and numbered the matches for us


Tom and Jeanne Gearhart for running the Referee board and all the referee's who volunteered, without them we could not have had this tournament - the ever ready lines people who were steadfast in watching the lines during medal matches


Edie Preis and her great team for all the great food and drinks every day


Laurel Wineinger and her photographers who tirelessly photographed the action


Thank you to Morgan Robins and his team for getting everything setup and taken down


Judy Davenport and Louise Kant and their raffle committee for all their tireless work they did before and during the tournament.


The Shuttle team of Jim Fallis and Harold Mackenthun who shuttled people all three days to and from the gravel parking lot


We had 285 players participate in the 8th Annual Palm Creek Pickleball Tournament


There were 506 matches, 877 games, and we awarded 168 medals.


Everything increased by 1/3 – players, matches and games, from last year


Thanks again for everyone who helped - without you we could not have had a fun and successful tournament
