‘Dinko de Mayo’ Pickleball Scramble

Despite having to postpone the pickleball scramble once due to rain, the weather cooperated on May 25, and the Lake Wildwood Pickleball Club had a fun-filled day! The format, developed by social director Nan Spier and her team of volunteers was unique: each person came as an individual player and played five different games — each game with a new partner and sometimes switching partners in the middle of the game! There were lots of laughs, as each game had a “twist.” For example, playing with your non-dominant hand or a dink-only game.

The overall winners with the most cumulative points: Gold Medal Scott Merrit, Silver Medal (tie) Ollie Nordby and Mike Perbetsky, and Bronze (tie) Steve Farrage, Steve Smith and Chris Mason.

A big shout-out to our Dinko sponsors: Shuttle with Zoomies (Bill Tomrose), Grocery Outlet (Kim and Steve Smith), Whim (Kelly Piercey), Laurie Mason Insurance, Edward Jones (Torey Bowman) and local businesses that donated raffle prizes: Pilot Peak (Len Stevens), Lake Wildwood Golf (Jim Knight), Headsweats (Mike McQueeney), Eagle Lube (Jim and Nancy Troutner) and Pickleball Central.

Save the Date: Lake Wildwood PB Club Annual Meeting and Picnic Dinner is Wednesday, June 12, this year, starting at 5 p.m. at Commodore Park. Check the Lake Wildwood PB Club website for more information.
