Greetings Chamber Members,
The mission of the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce is "To serve as the voice for the business community, providing leadership and vision that encourages a favorable business environment and economic expansion in Fayette County. "
In order for the Chamber to remain relevant long term, the board of directors decided we needed to look at a way to supplement the work accomplished at Bridge Day with another event.  While brainstorming on fundraiser ideas, we recalled the success of the Sports Festival and wanted to bring the vitality of that event back to our community.
NBA championship coach Pat Riley once said, "There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or you're OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between." With this in mind, June 2018 is going to be a lot of fun: the Sports Festival is back and will be re-branded the:
"New River Gorge Sports and Cars Fest - June 20-24, 2018"
Though this event will be a fundraiser for the Chamber, it will directly benefit the entire business community of Fayette County. All events will be conducted in Fayette County and any Fayette County entity can be involved. While our focus is on Fayette County, our goal is to attract participants from all over the state and even the country. How many people do we know that have moved away and would love a reason to come back and visit (and hopefully, spend their money)!
In addition to this exposure, prize winners for the events will earn Fayette County gift certificates that can be used at businesses that are both chamber members and event sponsors. For example, if your business chooses to be a $100 sponsor, the winner of the golf event can present their certificate at your business and the chamber will reimburse you dollar for dollar. Any business sponsor could be reimbursed their entire sponsorship, or more = FREE MARKETING!
Included with this letter, you will find a sponsorship form and a tentative schedule of events.  Please consider joining our Chamber by being a sponsor and encouraging participation in the events.

ASWVActive Southern WV ~ Activity of the Month
Pickleball: Beginners Match
January 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Pickleball is suitable for all age groups. Seniors can play against and with teenagers while women can readily compete with men players. The ball travels at about 1/3 the speed of a tennis ball and thus the court is about 1/3 the size of a tennis court. Finesse and accuracy are more important than power and speed although reaction time can be precious in some aspects of play.

Ex-tennis and ex-racquetball players easily adjust to the Pickleball game as well as ping pong and badminton players. In fact, the game is played on the same size court as doubles badminton. Pickleball can be played indoors or out.  While the game is easy to learn and play, there can be large differences in skill. In the more advanced Pickleball, there are tournaments and player ratings much like tennis. There are even pro players and national level tournaments for the more advanced and competitive players.
Ron says, "In Florida, many venues are outdoors, however, Carole I prefer to play indoors. Given the recent weather in the southern WV area, I think we should try to find an indoor venue that can host Pickleball at least twice a week. The more often people get to play the better their game tends to be."
Please wear athletic or loose fitting clothing and clean tennis shoes. Indicating you are "going" in this event page will help us prepare enough equipment.
