Quail Creek POA Meeting
Over the last several months your QCPC Board has been discussing how to best utilize the Quail Creek POA Board in helping to finance the lighting/shade/bench pads projects.  

 In years past we have approached the Finance Committee to cost share the projects with the POA.  Even though they had been approved, the projects were never started due to POA budget restraints.  
Also, because of the budget restraints,
 emphasis has been put on the management and implementation of projects by the Clubs.    

We are excited to share with you that the POA has approved the lighting, shade and bench pad projects.  This happened at the last POA Board meeting. 
All of these projects should be completed this year.
 In addition, and with a great financial benefit to our club, the Robson Corporation will pay for adding LED lighting to courts 3/4/5/6/7/8/15/16.   

They also approved the following projects of retrofitting LED lights to courts 1/2/9/10/11/12, the shade structure project, and adding more bench pads.  
These projects will be paid for by the QCPC. 
The Club has been saving up money each of the past 5 years for projects such as these. 
 Our fundraising abilities (QCPC is a 501(c)(7)), 
and the expenditure of these funds
 will be discussed at the March 12th General Meeting.
Be sure to attend the meeting!

2020 Pickleball Rodeo 

and St. Jude Fundraiser



The March monthly social will be a “Pickleball Rodeo” 
Wednesday, March 11
 9:00 to approximately 1:00. 
A Pickleball Rodeo is a combination of friendly and fun skill competitions.  We will be competing as four-person teams in Serving, Return Serve, 3rd Shot Drop and Dinking contests, followed by the ever-popular and truly unique round robin relay tournament.  This year, a new and "surprise" exhibition event will be added for four lucky contestants.  All skill levels are welcome.  A social and food sharing event will follow the competition.  Registration will be closed on March 9 so we can form the competition teams.
In lieu of the 2020 Quail Creek Classic Tournament, the Tournament Directors (who are also organizing this Rodeo) are asking you to continue to support St. Jude by bringing your                                                     voluntary donation!
St. Jude is the USAPA designated charity, and the Quail Creek Classic has been a major contributor to this effort.  In addition to your donations, we will once again raffle off a week in a condo at the Cimarron Golf Resort in Palm Springs, during the 2020 Pickleball Nationals in November.  We will also raffle off a chance to play in the new "surprise" exhibition event, and have pickleball-related prizes to bid on.  Please plan to attend, bring cash or your checkbook, and be generous to help kids with cancer and their families!
Parking will be very limited, as per the Quail Creek POA we are now confined to the parking lot at the courts.  If you can, please drive golf carts rather than cars, carpool, or ride your bike.
