Another Exciting Softball Season at Palm Creek is Just Around the Corner!!! :)

Field and Amenity Updates:

The outfield was over-seeded mid-September and has been mowed several times. It will need another 8 -10 days to fill-in completely.

Once the field has been turned over to us for practice, the Board will update the members.

The interior of the Announcers Booth will be complete by next week. Yay for Bill!!!
The field is looking Great - this was taken yesterday, October 16th, 2016 - Thank you Barb!

Softball schedule outline:

There will be "NO" softball at Palm Creek November, 4th thru November 13th, 2016 during the National Pickleball Tournament.

Fall Softball will kick-off with a pre-season double-headers on November 8th & 10th at Robson Ranch.

The official Fall Season will begin at Palm Creek on Tuesday, November 15th, and run through December, 15th.  We will once again have eight teams for Fall League!

2017 Winter Softball Season will begin Thursday, January, 5th and run through March 17th, with breaks for the Palm Creek In-house Pickleball Tournament, (February 6th to 8th), and the Bullhead City Softball Tournament, in March of 2017. This new Winter League Schedule will eliminate the need for the March Madness Spring league!

Ladies Softball Anyone? Please see below for note and contact information from Deb Morrison

For any ladies interested in playing a little softball I would be willing to meet with you at 1:00 pm on Monday afternoons at the ball field.
What I propose is that we meet and work on some fundamentals to see just what we women can do.  I am convinced that there are ladies in this park with lots of ball skills but sometimes we don't want to practice or play with the men.  That is understandable and this is an opportunity to come out on your own just to have a little fun.  I have spoken with some who say this is what they would like to do. 
I would like to start on January 18.  There will be times when the league teams will be playing on Mondays and we will have to work around that, but I am sure we can work that out as it will only be if they have rained out games to make up.  Otherwise we will be good to go. 
If you would give me a call or text so that I have an idea of interest, I would appreciate that.  If you would like to stop by to speak with me I live at # 31.
Thanks so much,
Deb Morrison
