‘Dinko de Mayo’ Pickleball Scramble

Terri Nordby

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.
