The Columbia River Pickleball Club is now 83 members strong.  We have ordered 90 shirts which we will distribute along with Membership Cards as soon as they arrive.  That will be no later than May 15.
Very soon we will have the entry form online for the Pickle Barrel Classic 2012 tournament.  (Please don’t forget to bookmark We are currently looking for sponsors and volunteers to make the tournament a success.  Most of you know that the Timberhill Athletic Club in Corvallis hosted a very successful tournament.  Many of our members participated and were very successful.  The Timberhill group deserves high praise for doing such a great job on their first tournament.  We invite their group to come join us in our first endeavor and only hope we can be as successful. (results are now posted if you would like to see under the “tournaments” menu.)
Summer is coming and we hope to get a lot of outdoor activity going.  Watch for notices to keep up on new venues and times to play.  We do have 4 portable nets available for short term check out to any club member by request.  (please look under the “about us” link)
There will be a few more mini-tournaments on Wednesday nights at Marshall Elementary School.  The last one this year will be June 6.  Information can be found here under Tournament Information.
See you on the courts,
Mike Wolfe, President CRPC
