North Georgia - Halloween Round Robin and Chili Cook-Off, and Annual Fall Pickleball Tournament

Good Afternoon~!
     How is your Fall?  We haven’t had a hard freeze, so there isn’t a lot of Fall color yet.  Our Fall Pickleball hours have changed to 10 a.m. Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday.  We might change again as the temperature drops.  I’ll keep you posted. 
    We would love to put something in print about our upcoming Halloween Round Robin and Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, October 26th.  Costumes not required but requested.  Everyone will play in costume for the  final set of games with special “Halloween paddles”. People are coming from Beverly Hills, California (Dr. Weston & Denise Richter), Houghton, GA (Steve & Renate Hess), Dahlonega, GA (Sharon Thomas & Leo Anderson) and Franklin, TN (Stephanie Lane & Joe Gilmore).   The cook-off begins around 5:30 p.m.  with additional Macedonia community and neighborhood friends.   Already there are a dozen crock pots of chili entered with a cash prize of $50.00 for the winner selected by popular “secret ballot” votes.  As in our tournament, there is only one winner – everyone else is a loser!  Join us! 
Our 7th annual fall tournament will  begin at 8:45 a.m. on November 23rd with the National Anthem by the Creekview High School chorus and band.  The Teasley Middle School Air Raiders Rifle and Color Guard teams will also be a part of the opening ceremony.  In closing on the 24th, the President of the Cherokee County Humane Society will be presented a check for $5,000.00, which will be our private annual donation and the collected fees from the participants both days in the tournament. We also donate lunch both days, prizes, new balls, etc.  Floyd Moody is generous with a discount rate from Moody Graphic Designs for the long-sleeved tournament t-shirts.  The clever, new tournament design is donated by graphic artist Sarabeth Moody Cash.  Club members donate drinks, morning cut fruit/muffins and desserts for both days of meals. We hope to have the “Pickleball Rocks” apparel and paddles for sale and Jamie Caulkin will also have a gallery showing in the stable piano studio.  Friends and family are welcome to also purchase a t-shirt and lunch with a $20.00 donation.  For more information, phone Ann or Tom Earley 770.401.7355
