Saturday at Sun City Center

It was about an hour bike ride to the Sun City Center Community Association on Saturday for a day of competitive Pickleball between Thousand Trails players and Sun City.  Unlike the rest of the week, Saturday was cloudy in the 50's with 15-25 mph winds which made things more than interesting. There were about 40 of us who braved the weather on the  five beautiful courts.

What a great facility and a friendly host group.  When lunchtime came, hamburgers and hot-dogs were grilled to go along with lots of side dishes and desserts.  Val and I brought two plates of brownies with peanut butter chips which went fast.

We die-hards hung around until about 5:30, and then Val and I headed a few miles away to the Comfort Inn where we had a room reserved.

 Then it was off to Wayne and Georgie's house two miles away for dinner.

Good food and beer and wine helped to loosen up the tired muscles from the 20 plus games we played and then it was back to the motel.

The morning brought more playing time followed by one more meal at Wayne and Georgie's (had to eat up some of those burgers!).  And finally we headed back to Wauchula in time to see most of the playoff games.  Thanks to Wayne, Georgie, Margie and Dean for setting up the weekend.  It really was a blast.
