March Magic Shootout- March 12

There are a few spots left for the March Magic Shootout and registration has been extended until tomorrow, March 7 at 8:00 pm.  Get signed up by tomorrow!  Team availability is left in 3.5, 4.0, 4.5.  If you want to play in 3.0, sign up for the waitlist because there are sometimes last minute drop outs.  The waitlist will hold your spot.

If you are already signed up, please make sure your partner is registered at paid as well.  We have several teams with only ONE teammate registered.  After you select your partner, he/she has to go on and register as well.

Around the Post

See my previous message for all the information about the newest indoor pickleball facility opening in September 2023, Around the Post.  Early bird registration opened today and closes March 31st.  You will pay your deposit now to hold your spot (memberships numbers will be capped).  If you pay now, you will NOT pay another initiation fee in September 2023.  Call or stop in Westwood to fill out a membership application.  $100 (for EPPA members) $125 for non-members early bird fee.  Cash or check only at this time.  MANY EPPA members have already taken advantage of this great deal.

Heartfelt Sympathies

Many of you know the Sontheimer family not only from their bakery, but because almost all of their family members play pickleball.  Bob has been very involved with pickleball in Erie and beyond for MANY years.  They suffered a great loss over the weekend when they said good-bye to the matriarch of the family and Bob's wife of almost 60 years, Kathy.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Services will be private.
