SW Metro Pickleball Club’s Annual Meeting was held on Friday, October 5th at the Chanhassen Rec Center. Prior to the start of the meeting, there was open Pickleball play and a light meal served. The newest edition of the TipBits books was available and there were also a few lucky winners in the door prize drawings.
Dennis Gallagher paid tribute to Jerry Maas and explained about a new award being established in Jerry’s memory. It’s simply called the Jerry Maas Memorial Award and will be presented each year to a club member who goes above and beyond contributing and supporting the sport of Pickleball. The first ever Jerry Maas Memorial Award was presented to MARK ENGASSER.
Dennis presented Mark with the award – Congratulations Mark Engasser!
