PPPA – WEEKLY EMAIL BLAST
In this week's blast:
We continue to find water bottles and other trash on the pickleball courts at MVP. It is not the job of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services employees to clean up after players. Regardless of where you play, please pick up any trash you find on the courts. If you see someone leaving trash on the court, give them a friendly reminder that we all need to work together to keep our courts clean.

As the days get shorter, the MPV lights will turn on earlier. Right now they will come on at 6:30 p.m. Beginning November 1st, the lights at MVP will turn off at 9:00 p.m. The further we get into fall/winter, the security company that locks the courts at night will begin locking them earlier since court use is unlikely to continue until 9:00 p.m. due to cold temperatures. Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services could not give me a definite time schedule on night time lockup. If anyone is playing at the time the security company is locking the gates, players will be asked to leave the courts. We believe the security company will lock the gates at a reasonable time and do not anticipate any issues. If you do encounter any problems, please notify me by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
