BAPA Summer Social

It’s time again to relax with a cool drink and some great food and socialize with all your pickleball friends.

This year our president, Kevin Johnson, is cooking some wonderful beef brisket for our main dish. Buns will also be provided.


WHEN: Tuesday, June 13, at 5:30 pm

WHERE: Shelter 1 at Settlers Park. Settlers Park is at the corner of Ustick and Meridian Road. Shelter 1 is the one we used last year. It is a little north of the restroom building. It’s best to park in the lot west of the tennis and pickleball courts that you enter off of Ustick. Since there is a lot of construction at the Meridian Road/Ustick intersection, it might be best to approach from Linder Road and turn east on to Ustick to get to the parking lot. Allow at least 10 minutes extra travel time to get through this area.

WHO: All BAPA members and their spouse, partner, significant other.

WHAT TO BRING: One side dish or dessert. Sign up at Just put Carlson for the coordinator name and bapa for the password. By signing up, we will know how much meat to cook, and we can also avoid a lot of duplication of dishes.

If you are bringing something gluten-free, please mark it as such.

If you don’t want to use the potluck website, please email or call Trish Carlson at or 309-264-6438 to let us know you are coming.

WHAT NOT TO BRING: BAPA will be providing table service (plates, forks, spoons, napkins) and bottled water. You can bring your own drinks, but our contract with Meridian Parks does NOT allow alcohol.

There will be picnic tables, so you don’t need to bring chairs.

Please sign up soon so we can plan for everyone!
