The Pickle Barrel Classic 2013 is quickly approaching.  I hope you are all planning to sign-up and also to volunteer to help with the tournament.  The Pickle Barrel Classic will be September 28-29.
To enter go to Pickleballtournaments.com or use this link:  http://pickleballtournaments.com/a_register.pl
First register or sign in.  You will then enter or check your personal info.  Scroll to Pickle Barrel Classic 2013 and follow the registration instructions.  You will be able to pay online using PayPal which also takes any major credit card or if you prefer you can mail a check to our P.O. Box.
If you are looking or waiting for a partner, please register first.  There is a place for partner search where you may find someone or they may find you.
We will need many volunteers to make the tournament run smoothly and be a success.  I hope those who helped last year will want to help again, and we will get some new volunteers.  You may volunteer for specific jobs or areas, or just let us know you can help and we will find a place for you.  This year I am hoping to have several shifts for each position so that you will only work a few hours and everyone will be able to enjoy the tournament.
Below are the areas we may need help.  Please email me if you can help.  We will train you if needed.
Assistant to treasurer
Court preparation
Set up for tables, chairs, electrical, etc.
Event Desk (Computer skills)

In addition to several shifts for all the above, I am hoping that you will all help by refereeing.  We plan to have some practice refereeing prior to the tournament.  If you have not refereed and do not feel comfortable, please attend a clinic and practice prior to the tournament.
Please notify me by email of which positions you would like to fill.  I thank you all in advance.
