New Work-up Format for Friday Drop-in

You will find two things different.  There will be a definite structure to the play, because everyone will be playing by the same guidelines. Players will move up or down a court depending on the game results.  You will also have the opportunity to move up and play with players better than yourself occasionally.  That gives each of us the opportunity to improve our game. See the rules for the Friday work-up format.

Pool-Pickleball Project Delayed

The appeal of the Garner lawsuit has forced the POA to escrow the increased assessment fees and to not include them in the 2016 budget.

Quote from revised 2016 budget:

 The removed infrastructure projects include: Gate Software & Equipment Improvements, Pickleball/Pool Complex, Fuel Stop Renovation, and Balboa irrigation project. These projects and the corresponding long term project financing was moved to 2017. Management recommends a re-evaluation of the budget as soon as the assessment suit is finalized.

The fees for pickleball remain the same as 2015.

The complete revised budget is at this link.
