The Sequim Picklers Annual Meeting will include the election of Officers and Board members for the coming year. You get to vote along with an update on the Construction progress and a comment period. Needless to say, this is an important year for the Club. Going forward, we all need to be involved.
As you enter, Sharman Owings has donated an original painting for a drawing! Just drop your name in the box and hope you’re the winner. Make a donation to help offset the cost of the venue.
ENCHILADA COOK OFF!
Enter your favorite enchilada recipe! We will have 5 judges. Please make enough that they can taste and the rest of the club can taste too. You will know who the judges are by their crazy badges and they will take money bribes! All collected will go toward building the courts, of course. The winners will be announced at the Party. First place will receive a trophy made by our own Ross Brown. Second place, a bag of pickleballs. All entries must be labeled with main ingredients, no names/anonymous. Please let us know if you plan to enter. Yummo!
Katinka has donated a Keg of beer again this year! Thank you!

On December 21st, Charlie Pugh (Sequim Picklers Club VP) met with Dave Walter (COO Composite Recycling Technology Center) at CRTC’s new production location in Port Angeles. This is the site where they are ramping up to produce their first product (Pickleball Paddle) from scrap carbon fiber composite that they receive from Boeing’s aircraft production line. Their new facility includes some impressive capabilities and more systems to automate their production are coming.
Charlie provided Dave a summary of the Sequim Picklers comments on the X4 AERO Paddle that the club tested during group play. Dave was very happy to receive the Sequim Picklers evaluations. The feedback was very timely as the CRTC is planning upgrades from feedback received into what will be the X5 (next prototype version). It should include many of the clubs suggestions. Dave Walter was so pleased with the comprehensive evaluations from a cross section of players that he would like to give the Sequim Picklers an early version of the X5 to provide some quick feedback to him. The Sequim Picklers are uniquely positioned to provide this non-profit company quick and comprehensive testing of their prototypes so that they can produce the best paddle possible.
Assisting the CRTC is in line with the mission of the Sequim Picklers. It improves the recycling posture of the planet, improves the pickleball paddle product that the CRTC will be making and allows the club the unique opportunity to directly contribute to the improvement of the next version. The CRTC is on track to sell their first publicly available paddle on Pickleball Central in the March 2017 time frame. If you participated in the original evaluations of the X4, Charlie will be seeking you out for similar reviews of the X5.
Here is a link to the King 5 piece that was on TV from a CRTC press conference in Seattle.
