CLUB WINTERIZATION
The 2021 season has ended for both tennis & pickleball. We look forward to seeing you back on the courts in spring of 2022. Thanks to all who turned out on December 2nd to help with “Winter Cleanup” (see photos in the Gallery Tab). The nets have been removed, as snow removal could lead to court damage. Also, a special thank to our maintenance committee and volunteers on Saturday, October 30 who made the winterization process smooth and efficient. Our bathrooms will remain closed until the spring. 

THANKS FOR A GREAT YEAR
PTPC will remember 2021 as a year of significant renewal inside the Club. We renovated four tennis courts, and repurposed two others to create six brand new, permanent, divided pickleball courts, fueling demand for new memberships (additional 34 new member units). A quote from our treasured Charter Member–Walt Urick: “I’ve watched in amazement the activity of this past year and send a heartfelt thanks to all members who helped make it happen. Especially, Ron & Jan Gooding, and Jackie Tracy for their tireless work, both in terms of leading the board and encouraging membership to achieve the vision of a first-class tennis & pickleball facility that will last for many years into the future!”

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Thanks to the generosity of many of our members, we’ve received $88,350 in pledges to the campaign as of October 2021. Adding the $10,200 of initiation fees from our (34) new members, it brings our capital asset fund receipts to $98,550. But our capital campaign is still continuing. If you have not yet done so, please feel free to make a pledge or payment toward our Court rebuilding/ refurbishing projects. Pledges/ payments can be made in any amount and may be paid over 2 years. Please send a check or pledge form to PTPC, PO Box 403, Pentwater, MI 49420.

ANNUAL CLUB MEETING
Our Club President, Jackie Tracy says “thanks to all who attended our Annual Membership Meeting on Friday, August 20. At the heart of this club is a robust volunteer committee structure, and we encourage anyone interested in helping to join a committee.”
The membership voted to:
> Confer an Honorary Membership on Bud Longnecker who was a tireless worker for the club for over 14 years and has moved from the area.
> Re-elect Jackie Tracy & Ted Butz to 3-yr terms to the Club’s Board of Directors.
> Approve the Board’s recommended 7-Year Capital Reserve Special Assessment of $40 for Individual Memberships & $50 for Family Memberships. The annual dues will continue to be $130 for Individuals, $180 for Families. Starting in 2022 and for a period of 7 years, the annual special assessment will be added to the annual dues for each membership, to be held in reserve to apply solely to future capital improvement projects of the Club.
> The Board of Directors met after the annual meeting and selected the following officers for 2021-22: ♦ President – Jackie Tracy ♦ Vice President – John DiPangrazio ♦ Secretary – Linda Baumann ♦ Treasurer – Walt Urick ♦ Past President – Jim Kett ♦ Directors – Ron Gooding & Ted Butz ♦

AED MACHINE
The metal case housing the AED has been moved to dryer ground. It’s now located under the covered section of the Clubhouse. A lock box is mounted next to the AED case, which holds a key that will open the metal case door. Enter the code 911 on the lockbox keypad to access the key. When operating the AED, once you press the start button on the unit, verbal instructions will lead you through the process of using the lifesaving device.
