Outgoing President’s Message – Ross Priebe
At the Surrey Pickleball Club; Annual General Meeting a new Board for the 2020 Season was elected.
I had chosen to step down from my role on the Board as I have functioned in this role for the past 4+ years.
A number of events and accomplishments have taken place in these past years and there is more to come in the years ahead on the pickleball courts.
I will remain an active member in the club as needs and roles are defined further.
I thank the new Board for taking on their respective positions as our club continues to develop and grow in areas of membership, mentorship and those elusive dedicated-permanent courts.
In addition, thanks to many of you who have been involved in encouraging and developing the club to where it is today.
And finally, a big thank-you to those of you who have served on any of the past Boards for our club.
