    Hi Chris,

    are we limiting the numbers to 22 this time?
    I am sure a lot of players would be happy if the waiting time decreases!

    Thanks for your feedback, keenweisam.

    Yes, for us to have CCCers involved in the League Games, it has often caused disruption to our Booking List (especially when done after Tuesday 7:30am).

    I have spoken to a few CCC club members. There are 2 suggestions put forward;
    (1) Pay more attention to club members, less to visitors.
    (2) Reduce our number of slots for total players (members and visitors combined) so that we each can have more games per session.

    I shall inform everyone soon, about what will be our;
    (1) New maximum number of slots/players available per session.
    (2) New fees involved (when we reduce our number of players - for members and visitors).
    (3) Blacklisting people who have booked in and didn't turn up.

    It is good that there is the Albert Park Badminton Club playing on the same night like us. Because when we reduce our numbers of players, visitors can still play at Albert Park Badminton Club.

    I am sure that many CCCers are all waiting for my reply

    .
    Sorry, just found that I have made an error here:-
    Friday 03-November-2011 (wrong), instead of Friday 04-November-2011 (correct).

    I am sure that many CCCers are all waiting for my reply.

    There are 2 options that we CCCers can take;

    (1) Move out of MSAC and move to school courts (To court hire ranging from $5 to $10 per court per hour).

    (2) Stay at MSAC (With court hire cost of $19 per court per hour)


    I have done my calculations;

    If we stay at MSAC,

    (1) Our expenses will be;

    * Court hire....... 9x$19 = $171
    * Shuttlecocks... 4x$27 = $108

    Total expenses = $171 + $108 = $279

    (2) Our income (now down to 22 slots and assuming a typical session) will be;

    * Members....... 10x$10 = $100
    * Visitors......... 12x$15 = $180

    Total income = $100 + $180 = $280

    It is nearly balanced (unless we fall short without getting the maximum of 22 players and/or a different mixture of members-vs-visitors).


    Some CCC members have suggested this;

    * Do like what Albert Park Badminton Club do - use lower grade/cheaper shuttlecocks.

    * Finish off our session earlier, say 10:30pm


    Personally, I would rather continue with what we have been doing all along.

    I shall let our CCCers to make their comments (if cutting down to 22 players is the right decision).

    I would prefer to play at MSAC. We could limit the time to 10.30 (could save another $38) since there are usually no bookings after that and the courts would potentially to remain free. I have seen a lot of Albert park social players play till 11pm on the same courts they had booked.

    Chris, my friend Russell-L told me that you forgot to return him $10 as he paid $23 the other night. Hope you can remember that so that the following week he pays $2 only if the price is $12 :) Cheers!

    Wednesday CCC at MSAC: 02-Nov-2011 (A short report)

    * Thanking to all who have removed themselves when they couldn't attend. It made available slots for others to join in.

    * We welcomed 2 first-timers;
    (1) Daniel-S - CCCer of many moons ago
    (2) Lisa-L - From Sunday CCC CATS
    Hope that they had enjoyed playing with us.

    * Marina-L arrived, but she was requested to fill in for the League Games.

    * Players organised games themselves after 9:30pm and this allowed me to start playing. :):):)

    Chris,

    My preference is also to stay at MSAC.

    However, some people last wednesday were not happy that court 5 was not available from 9.30PM onwards for doubles games. 22 players were waiting for 2 courts until 10PM and this was far from ideal.

    If the cost is increased, it would be best if this situation doesn't happen again as this would not help in getting players more court time.

    thanks....

    When I was playing on Court 5 (at that time), half the court was used for playing 'Half-Court Singles'. Yes, I saw you turning up there.
