Over the last two days, we held the 2019 Waccamaw Senior Classic Pickleball event at Midway Park. I think it was a big success again. We had 67 players attend between Thursday and Friday. The weather was questionable on Friday but we were able to complete both days by 1pm.
A HUGE thanks to all that helped put this together: Frank Cooper, Emily Taylor were both helping before and during the tournament. Frank, Scott and Steve had the courts taped on Weds afternoon. We had many volunteers help set up and tear down each day, Emily, Audrey, Robin, Betty worked the check-in and score table. We asked for volunteers for court monitors and FX, Robin, Tom, Betty, Sherry and Stephanie did a great job of keeping the matches running.
As you can see, it takes a lot of work to pull these events off and we always need volunteers. We urge you to volunteer for our events so we are not just relying on the same people all the time. As members taking advantage of our events, you will meet more people and we hope enjoy it more.
