The Playground Steering Committee met on 9/27, 10/11, and 11/15 to discuss funding strategies to replace play structures across Pendleton. Of the five play structures, one will not be replaced and the Kiwanis Park play strucutre is being leased by Pendleton Kiwanis International. They are now responsible for repairs and maintenance. To replace the other three structures at Sherwood, Aldrich, and May parks, the committee decided that seeking grant funding from local and State funders would be an effective strategy. So far, seven grants to local funders have been submitted. Six of them have been granted, one is pending. More will be submitted. Watch the usual places for those notices, including the Parks & Rec Facebook page.

Greetings from the Director! As we wrap up 2016 and head into the new year, we are ever grateful for the hard work of the Pendleton Parks and Recreation staff, volunteers, sponsors, and partners. The work that we do throughout the year including the activities and recreation programs we provide would not be possible without such a wonderful group of people. As you flip through these pages and plan for the upcoming season, please keep in mind the people who make it possible. Whenever possible, thank your instructors and any volunteers, donors, or sponsors you know. A full list can be found on the back page of this guide. In these pages, you will find old favorites such as the Xplore Pendleton event, gymnastics, and gamer’s night. We have something for every age group, and activities in many price ranges, including free! We strive to make our activities as accessible as possible. We are looking forward to a couple of new events including “Owls: Habitat, Habits, & Prey.” We have heard a few people express their excitement for this new event, so we are very much looking forward to it. Get registered by Friday 4/7 to claim your spot! For those of you who have not heard the news, Pendleton Parks and Recreation now has an Instagram page. Follow us as we begin to share more photographs of our parks, activities, and recreation programs. We are also still very active on our Facebook page, so if you have not already done so, go “Like” us to stay up to date with event reminders, cancellation information, announcements, and photographs. It is also a great place to meet other people who attend our events. I wish you a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you around!

If you choose to continue your registration, the system will place you on a waitlist. No payment is taken for placement on a waitlist. You will be called or emailed if an opening becomes available or if additional classes are created. If you fail to reply within 24 hours, the next available person on the waitlist will be notified.

We WILL distribute the guide through the schools, as well as periodic flyers that help fill the gap between guides, typically around holiday breaks. We will also continue to distribute to our normal locations (see below) and have placed a mailbox outside of the Park Office with extra copies so you can still get one when our office is closed.

birthday parties In the gym Ages: up to age 18

The gym is a great place for kids to have some energetic fun with friends and family. Avoid unpleasant weather and come inside to enjoy badminton, dodgeball, volleyball or basketball. Play some ping pong, foosball or pool. We have a great sound system too. We also have a bouncy house (add $30) or putt putt golf (add $10) available. You may choose from four time slots or rent contiguous time slots for a longer party. The facility is exclusively yours during your rented time period. Please no early arrivals so that we can give equal service to all of our birthday guests. You may also add time in our gymnastics studio to your party (add $50). Our gym supervisor will take down small groups of party guests and spend some time monitoring safe use of equipment and show kids different tricks they can try. The last party of the day is popular for teen parties. If it is dark enough it makes for a great opportunity for glow in the dark activities such as a game of glow in the dark dodgeball in the gym! Call 276-8100 to book your party today!

adult activities karate: ryukyu kempo All Ages

Fee: $50

Okinawan Kemp Karate is a traditional martial art. It is based on developing good human character. Because karate doesn’t compete with others, children as well as older adults can learn and practice this art, to become healthy in body and mind. We study kata’s, traditional okinawan wood weapons, and calligraphy. Our instructor, Sensei Lars Hansen, has studied karate for over 10 years and is certified by the United Ryukyu Kempo Alliance. There is a $20 shirt fee to get started. You can wear your own black sweatpants or purchase karate pants from the instructor ($1525. No yoga pants. The monthly registration fee is due the Thursday prior to the first class day of the month. Location:

5:30 to 6:30 pm

Instructor: Sensei Lars Hansen

Instructor spotlight: Sensei Lars Hansen Lars Hansen is one of our newest instructors, and he has brought a breath of fresh air with him. His energy and passion for karate translates to his students, of all ages, in all of his classes. Hansen began studying Tawkwondo in his youth, but gave it up when he moved away. He picked back up when he was 15. After high school, Hansen joined the Air Force and got busy with those experiences. Between military service and an anxiety he began to feel about starting over again, it took him a few years to return to the dojo. He described this by saying “I was interested in karate but never went. I wasn’t sure where to go. I didn’t know what I would have to do when I got there, so the uncertainty led me to not go. Years went by.” That dread is something that

Ages: 16+


many people can relate to. However, Hansen overcame those feelings when one day he decided out of the blue to just show up: “I walked into the Karate Dojo in Hermiston and said ‘Please teach me!’ And you know what. it was something I could do!” He said. “Do you know what the hardest part of doing something new is? Starting. Half of life is showing up and getting out of our comfort zone.” Hansen now uses his personal experieinces to add to his classes, and it shows. His students are more comfortable with someone who has been through those feelings of uncertainty and self-consciousness. Please make him feel welcome when you see him around the Rec Center. We are happy to have him with us!

Waltz and foxtrot Fee: $24 Ages: 16+

Fee: $24

Cha Cha is one of the fundamental three social dances that makes a well-versed dancer; the other two are foxtrot and waltz. Cha Cha can be danced to a variety of music genres and tempos. It can be sassy or graceful. It is up to you and your style! The fun aspect of this class is that the turns learned for Cha Cha can be used in Salsa! Wear comfortable shoes that allow for turning steps. We cannot wait to see you on the dance floor! No partner required.

Learn the basic moves and a few turns to dress up your foxtrot and waltz. Foxtrot is not an out-dated dance. It is one of the most versatile dances you can learn as it works just as well when George Strait sings as when Ariana Grande. When a waltz is played, it is reassuring to have a few basic steps in your repertoire. Learn the advantages of leading and following while moving to the beat. Wear comfortable shoes that allow for turning steps. No partner required.
