We both retired in May of 2006. For the first 6 years we were avid RV'ers and addicted to the game of Pickleball. In September of 2013 we sold the RV and bought a house on the canal to Lake June in Lake Placid, FL where we continue to meet new people and make new friends. Fishing is our favorite past-time now. THANK YOU to our families and friends, old and new, for making our retirement the best chapter in our life so far.

Our First Pickleball Clinic at Peace River
A few of the players were interested in attending a pickelball clinic to help improve their game. Rich posted the time and place on the white board at the club house a few days prior. Better than 15 people showed up either as spectators or to participate in our first training clinic. A special thank you to Stan for coming out and helping Rich - They make a pretty good team!!
Here's Rich addressing some of the participants. The clinic only lasted about an hour an half and covered things like - the serve, where to stand on the court, forehand, backhand, dink shots, volley at the net, making line calls and safety on the court. Everyone did a great job, looked like they were having fun and hopefully learned a few new things to help them with their game.
Enjoy the pictures.............
