Can You Beat Boise’s Best?

BBBAre you interested in testing your pickleball skills, but don’t have the endurance for a full tournament? …

Treasure Valley Pickleball Clubs are raising money to build a 12-court dedicated pickleball facility. “Beat Boise’s Best” is a donate-to-play event held on May 27, after competition events are finished at Settlers Park.

BRING YOUR CHECKBOOK…for a $50 tax-deductible donation you and your partner will play a game to 11 against Glenn Spivey & Zack Pancheri (our resident 5.0 team).

See how many points you can score.

The worst that could happen is you could learn something, while supporting the sport of pickleball.

Cement your spot on their ‘dance card’ today by sending an email with a subject of ‘Beat Boise’s Best’ to Barbara Dumler (bdumler2@gmail.com).

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 www.perfectpotluck.com. 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 dougpat4@hotmail.com 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!
