Since the last update, APC continues to evolve, with now over 625 active members!
The summer evening league is in full swing at PAL park. Heat not withstanding, players converge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, leveraging our permit with the AA county, to play competitive, yet fun games. Thanks to Ed Woods for coordinating, and Danielle Kaczensky, Ben Torreon, and others for supporting both the league operation, and after play socials. We are especially happy for our members who still have careers, offering a league opportunity that they can take advantage of in the evening.
Speaking of AA County, APC has received word that the two tennis courts at Bestgate Park will soon undergo renovation and be lined with four additional pickleball courts! Stay tuned for more details. Thanks to Kristin Schwitzer and Frank Quigley for helping nurture along our partnership with the county. More court capacity for APC is a good thing!
Based of the support of Nick Passagno, and many APC volunteers, our kids clinics are off to a great start. Several others are planned with volunteers needed. This is a great example of APC outreach.
Stay tuned to email notifications to sign up for the third edition of the APC ladder league, which plays on Tuesday’s. Our league fills up very quickly. Sign up on the website begins at 12 noon on August 8, 2019.
APC is also starting a new novice/beginner league! This will enable newer players to play fun and competitive games. Sign up for this league will commence at 12 noon on August 10, 2019.
Permanent lines will soon be painted on basketball court #1 at PIP Moyer. Thanks to Nick for his continued hard work with the PIP relationship.
Per the APC bylaws, the board has created a nominating committee to identify candidates for board positions that will need to be filled in 2020. The board has asked Marshall Steele to chair the committee, with Kristin Schwitzer and Jack Evans as committee members. This committee will commence their activities shortly.
The APC website, coordinated by Tom Shupe, is the main location regarding information of the clubs operations. The site is utilized to conduct surveys, communicate play times and locations, enable registrations for league, clinic, and social events, among other things. You can find contact information for every APC member who provided it. The board posts minutes of all board meetings to establish a new level of transparency, ensuring every club member, who takes the time to review them, understands what is being discussed. The forums exists to enable Q&A, and comments from members.
All the best!
