Longtime Club Member Ed McGaa, left this earth Friday, August 18 at 3:15 to meet Our Heavenly Father. Soaring with the eagles now.

Ed was one of our very early supporters and a very early member of SW Metro.  He was proud of his Indian heritage and proud of being from South Dakota.  He had a table/booth at the Crazy Horse monument in Custer, South Dakota where he sold books and some hand made jewelry.

Ed was also a Marine fighter pilot whom flew many missions in Viet Nam. Not a mention a good pickleball player who won Gold at the Minnesota Senior Games in 2011.

Rest in peace dear friend.

Corny Times at the Corn Feed Pickleball Event

A good and corny time was had at Round Lake Park in Eden Prairie on Saturday, August 5th. We played open pickleball, took lessons, participated in drills, and feasted on sweet corn.

The Corn Feed was sponsored by the Eden Prairie Lions Club, who is becoming involved with the Southwest Metro Pickleball Club’s efforts to promote and expand dedicated pickleball courts in our area.  $270 was raised for our Club.

Special thanks to Ian and Adriana Astbury for teaching the lessons and drills.
