Sequim Pickler’s Adopt-A-Highway
The Sequim Picklers are adopting a stretch of Highway 101 between Dryke Road and Shore Road under the State’s Adopt-A-Highway program. We are going to do our first cleanup on Saturday 5th January 2019 (weather permitting). We will do 4 cleanups a year and after two cleanups we will get a Highway sign acknowledging the Sequim Picklers. Volunteers should be 15 years or older. WDOT provides vests, bags, signs and pick up sticks. Safety training, in the form of a video, will be provided before participating. Please let us know of your interest in participating by emailing email@example.com. 11/23/18. Read the Jan 5 Report here and consider volunteering in April. 1/10/19.
Many months ago, well before we got our sparkling new courts, Ruby and I began a modest program to introduce newcomers to our wonderful game. We offer limited free court time, explanation of the rules, a little coaching, and a lot of encouragement. But most importantly, the novices benefit from the opportunity to play pickleball in an environment more dedicated to learning and trying than to sheer competition.
Our little program has been successful beyond our expectations, with many participants electing permanent memberships. And if I may say so, we have all had a really good time. These people have a lot of fun learning the game.
But it ends up that we have life beyond pickleball and won’t always be available. We need a few patient members to give us a hand, to be willing to show up to do sign-ups and to give guidance to the steady stream of good folks who wish to give our sport a try, and to ensure that they have fun doing it.
Our novice sessions are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays, noon to 1:30. If you are willing to help in this worthy effort to grow our sport, please give me a call or shoot me an email and we can arrange the details. Thank you in advance for your interest.
