Hello - From Rich and Donna

Rich and I have been very busy this month. We held a beginner pickleball workshop at the Lake Magic Encore RV Park, not too far from Disney on SR 192. There were about 13 new players that showed up. Then we did a beginner pickleball workshop and demo over in Ruskin, Fl. This was at the Riverside Club, where more than 40 people showed up.
Then we got to play a little bit at the Winter in Paradise Wing Ding down in Sun City Center. Pictures above are the medal winners. Rich took the Gold in the mens doubles, and Silver in the Mixed Doubles, with Louann (in the pick shirt). I took the Gold in the Mixed Doubles with Gary (the guy standing behind me). It was a real fun day.
We are in Ft.Myers now for the Lee County Senior Games
See you all soon.
