Today our other three California Central Coast Ambassadors came to Centennial Park to play....Richard Dorman (Pismo Beach), Jos Hilden (Cambria) and Jean Hyduchak (San Luis Obispo) joined Jack Hodges (Paso Robles) for a fun morning of play. After the meeting, the four went to lunch at Burbank Ranch Bistro with the expressed purpose of discussing the future of Pickleball on the Central Coast.
First, let's talk lunch. Burbank Ranch Bistro gets 5 Stars!!!! http://www.burbankranch.com/tasting-room A new place to eat in the heart of downtown Paso Robles, the food and service were excellent. Very nice, comfortable interior. At 11:30, the four of us were the only ones in the Bistro, but by the time we left (1:30 p.m.), the place was full. I had the grass-fed beef burger with fries---an A+. Not enough time for dessert, but looked at the menu. Everything looked great. Will definitely return....soon.
Back to our meeting. We visited for almost two hours (and ate lunch as well) exchanging ideas about what we could do to spread the word about America's fastest growing sport. We talked about supporting each other as we conducted upcoming Demonstration Clinics in Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande. All of these cities have expressed an interest in starting up Pickleball.
Thank you Jean, Jos and Richard. It was fun playing PB with you today and hearing all your great ideas. Our USAPA is lucky to have you.
For anyone else reading this blog, "How did The Ball Come Off Your Paddle Today?" Hopefully, with good placement and patience.
