The Holiday season is fast approaching – time to get Holly & Jolly on the courts!  Join us for our final HPC social of the year on Saturday, December 3, at the Sandra Moon outdoor courts, 9 am-Noon.  We will share treats, fun times, and a festive, random draw, club tournament designed for all skill levels.  Per the flyer, come in your jolliest spirit and merriest attire to increase your tourney score.

Festival on the Moon Sunday Delay Start

Festival on the Moon Delay start time for Sunday:  Noon

We will be there at 10:30 am setting up and drying off courts when the rain stops.  If you want to help us with this, please bring towels and blowers.

The Festival will begin at Noon with Penny Lamb’s workshop: Strength & Conditioning Training for Pickleball. Bring a towel or mat for stretching if you have one available. This workshop will be held indoors in the check-in building.

The schedule will continue with the 4.0 Round Robin staring at 1 or soon after depending on court conditions. The rest of the schedule will be adjusted as needed and schedule changes will be announced at the Festival.  We will try to get in a few of the skill challenges as we can.

Our last round of prize drawings will be held towards the end of the day, so there is still time to buy chance to win tickets and enter to win some fabulous prizes.  Come check them out in the check-in building.  Don’t let the Festival close before you purchase your FOM t-shirt, magnet, pin, and postcard. You can find these for sale in the check-in building. All proceeds from all purchases go to the Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund. We also have a donation box in the check-in building. 

We have had a great Festival so far and thank all of you for your support!  Come join us today at Noon – 5 pm for the last day of fundraising and fun!  

Let’s play and give back!
