Fruit and Veggie Truck Comes Today

It’s Wednesday! Fresh fruits and veggies will be available for purchase near the EDM entrance between 2 and 2:30 pm. Luis has a good selection and if we support him initially, he will put us on his permanent schedule.

Thank you.

Pickleball Happenings

Pickleball at EDM continues in the mornings at 8:30, M,W,F. We now have four nets and the capability of setting up a fifth court if necessary. Interest has been steady with ten to sixteen players showing up regularly. Due to the intervention of Andy Brown, EDM management has stated they are willing to reimburse the core group who chipped in 800 pesos apiece to initially buy nets. The need for new balls continues as participants typically bring their own balls. With the participation of EDM, things will change although it has yet to be determined exactly how they will change. Obviously, a golf membership will entitle player to play free of charge. There needs to be an ongoing discussion as to whether or how to include non-golf membership holders. Also, we need to figure out what to do with the funds already collected.

So if you are interested in playing, come on down and chip in your two-cents’ worth… and get some exercise at the same time.

Sideways Spanish to Continue

If you are interested in gaining some ability to express yourself in Spanish without getting wrapped around the grammatical axel, consider attending a Spanish class at phase 1. Right now, with few in attendance, the classes are held on the 105/106 patio but if there is interest enough, they could be moved under the phase 1 palapa. Emphasis will be on pronunciation and spontaneity. The program is based upon Marcus Santamaria’s published course and I encourage you to sign up for his lessons online. Lesson 1 and the upcoming Lesson 2 are available for download using the following link.

Bring a beverage of your choice and we’ll see you after the fruit and vegetable truck departs.

By the way, we are working on getting permission for the truck to park in the employee parking lot just inside the entrance so as to limit exposure to passing trucks.
