Dick & Lawana Johnson will soon be on their way home from Arizona. They are really looking forward to again seeing great friends here in Boise…and, that there really is no place like home!
Dick finished the winter pickleball season in Arizona with a Gold, Bronze, and two Silver medals in several March tourneys.
Most were pretty tough and large with sometimes over 20 teams in one event. Highlights of the season were his Silver at Nationals, two Golds in the Arizona State Championships, and 14 medals overall.
Paula Ekins, Recreation Coordinator, has found another day and 3 more hours in her busy schedule at the Fort Boise Community Center for us to play our game of Pickleball.
Every Wednesday through April from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Fort Boise Community Center
700 Robbins Rd, Boise, ID 83702
Let’s support that time and day and just maybe it will become a permanent scheduled day and time.
When you see Paula be sure and thank her for finding more time for our game.
Carson Spencer began playing pickleball in 2003 in St. George, Utah, with well-known pickler Don Odel.
Over the years, he has played and medaled in several tournaments including the Senior Games Idaho and Utah, The Huntsman, and Nationals Tournaments in Buckeye.
Carson is most proud of the fact that he has “planted” pickleball in McCall, Donnelly, Cascade, Boise and Meridian.
Carson is currently developing pickleball only courts at Hobble Creek Park in Boise.
In the spring and summer, you’ll find Carson playing and teaching the game of pickleball in Cascade, Donnelly and Boise. Many have started their pickleball careers under his instruction, and his enthusiasm for the game is contagious!
