MP Pickler Medals at Regional Tournament

The Mid South Regional Tournament took place from July 13 to  July 15, 2012 at the  Castine Center in Mandeville, LA.  Meadow Point players Rich and Donna Donald travelled  to play in the three day event with six other Florida players from Poinciana, Wimauma and Ft. Myers.  

This first picture was taken at the Player Social held in nearby Covington, Fl.  There was a great  Louisiana style dinner of Jambalya, Red Beans and Rich, Potato Salad,  Cole Slaw, preceeded with Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo and followed by a delicious cake for dessert.  Lots of refreshments and chances to win lots of door prized.   Below (starting top left) Rich and Donna with Louisiana Pickleball Players, Rich with Mid South Regional Director, Tom Burkhart,  Rich and his doubles partner, Paul Coletta from North Carolina - with their SILVER Medals, and Rich with his Mixed Doubles partner from Texas.   Donna played with Cindy Eddleman from Ft. Myers and with Gary Miller from Poinciana, Fl - but did not medal.

The competition was really tough - but they had a great time.  Below are a few pictures of Rich playing, and you can see how big the venue was.  Sixteen indoor courts!!
