A message from Gary Gierlich:
MANY MANY THANKS and appreciation to all the Penticton Pickleball Club Members who helped out in pulling off a fantastic event this past Saturday. We are just waiting for the tally of funds collected but I know they will go a long way to assisting two great causes. This definitely was not a cookie cutter format but we pulled it off. I do not want to name names because I will forget someone. The volunteers from setup to tear down, registration crew, coaches, referees, sound man, food department, parking, and web site were the reason the Tourney was such a success. I also want to thank members who reached out to volunteer. I think I got back to most people but for those who I didn’t get a chance to respond to, thank you so much for the offer to help. My goal for the Tournament was to show appreciation to the fantastic medical staff who do so much to make lives better. But also to showcase the game of pickleball that we all love so much. I am proud to be a member of a club that has done so much. With everyone’s help we achieved our goal and more.
