2018 Don Bruce Memorial Members Pickleball Tournament

Don Bruce 
12/4/1948 - 1/26/2018

It was just two years ago, when still a 3.5 rated player, Don played in our Members Tournament and won the Gold medal in  4.0 men's doubles. It soon followed that his tournament rating changed to 4.0.

Don  not only enjoyed playing pickleball, he contributed to our club by serving in many volunteer positions.  He has been a Round Robin Captain, a Mentor and a Membership Coordinator. From 2016-2018 he  served as a Director on our Board as Treasurer.  He brought with him, to this position the experience of being the Secretary/Treasurer for the Prince George Squash Association for six years. He also enjoyed other outdoor activities which included Hiking, Camping and Fishing.

Don has touched many lives. He earned his Engineering degree at UBC and went on to work for  major companies, until he opened and owned his own company in 1997 in Alberta.  After several attempts he retired in 2015!   We have been fortuanate, Don and Lorraine had chose to winter with us at Palm Creek.  Our Sympathy and prayers are sent to Lorraine and their family and friends

We Celebrate Don, as our members come together for three days of competition,
 knowing Don will always be remembered
