Afternoon Pickleball Tournament Added After Morning Session Fills Up



Due to the popularity of our “History in the Making” Pickleball Tournament, we’re excited to add an afternoon session! The Afternoon Competitive Pickleball Tournament will start at 12:30 pm on June 1 (rain date June 2) at Tasker Park in Peconic.

Participants can register for level 3.5-4. OR 4.0+. There will be eight teams of two for each level. Gender blind. Limit 16 players per level.

The Afternoon Tournament will be double elimination, i.e., you have to lose twice before you are eliminated. Games are first team to 11 points. Come join us for some fun whether you register to play, or just want to watch! All are welcome.

NOTE: If you are registered for the morning session you may also register for the afternoon, but there is no switching from one to the other.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Poliwoda Team of Douglas Elliman, Charles and Helen Reichert Family Foundation, Greenport IGA, Southold IGA. Gary Despres, Physical Therapy, Mattituck Lions.

View Excepts from Chef Tom Schaudel’s Special Winter Lecture



Thank you to all who joined us for the final lecture in our free winter series, and a very warm and special thanks to Chef Tom Schaudel who delighted audiences with his talent and humor. Chef Schaudel discussed “Keeping It Rooted on Long Island”, sharing his expertise in utilizing fresh, local ingredients to craft amazing culinary creations. In addition to hearing stories from Chef Schaudel’s extensive history in the restaurant industry, he treated attendees to a delicious taste of gnocchi with a veal sausage sauce. It was truly an enjoyable event! View video excerpts on our YouTube channel.
