    2) GENERAL DAY/TIMING PREFERENCE

    3) PREFERENCE FOR LOCATION
    bedok, siglap, joo chiat, tampines... basically anywhere in the east...

    4) COST
    we've been collecting $5 per person, still able to cover costs n getting by ok so far, but i'm not sure how it'll work out in the future.

    5) MISC STUFF
    - we're trying as far as possible to play weekly, but as u can see, we're having a little trouble securing courts, so do bear with us for now... sorry... hopefully the situation will be better in may after tampines SH's available n other courts are freed up for booking...
    - currently, we'll be posting the date/time/venue of games up on this thread as and when we manage to get courts, so do check for updates n sign up for the games accordingly... sorry again for the trouble...
    - many thanks to all of you who have helped n offered your help to keep this group going... without all your help/support, the group would have been closed down after just the first week... thanks also to our members for bearing with us thus far... really appreciate it! we're trying our best!

    hey caroline!

    thanks so much for all the effort to find the courts! yup, i think u can lias with terror; both of u are really efficient! U can drop him a private message n make some arrangements to coordinate bookings or anything. i'm fine with getting the shuttles n recording funds etc.

    well of the available slots u've listed, i think these can be considered...
    1) 8th March Saturday: Tampines Central CC, 2 courts, 8-10pm
    2) either one of the two below:
    - 11th March Tue: Joo Chiat CC 7.30-9.30pm
    - 14th Mar Fri: Tampines Changkat CC 8-10pm, OR Fengshan CC 7.30-9.30pm
    will it be too late to book if i put them up for a vote now? will post them up anyway n see the responses...

    thanks again!

    thanks rollercoaster, terror and chrisyln for the contribution

    as a mini suggestion, besides the list of people who played/interested in playing, why not we make a time-table of those days and date we will be available.

    with that done, the court-bookers will know whether it's to safe to book the court on a specific date and yet at the same time, attendance will not be compromised.

    just a little idea i came up with, share your views. :D

    Urgent! Please Respond Asap, Thanks!

    Hi everyone!

    sorry to bother... in order to make it easier to gauge the turn out n decide whether or not to book the courts as n when they are available, we'll need all of you to indicate all the possible days n time slots during which you'll be free to join us for weekly games... your prompt response is much appreciated... we're trying to get courts asap before they're all booked up again... thanks!

    830-1030pm is ok with me, not sure about the others as yet... i've put a post up asking everyone to indicated the days/times they're available (as suggested by bitterhahas)... that'll make it easier to gauge turn out n decide whether or not to book courts... can gauge from there if 830-1030pm is ok... wkend slots in the afternoon as an alternative are fine, but from previous feedback, saturday is preferred over sunday (sundays are often reserved for family n other commitments, n not preferred as the day after is a working day)... thanks again for all the effort!

    i have a recommendation :cool:;
    as chrislyn only is helping us to secure courts; it is not fair for her to bear the costs, eg, the courts terror mentioned booked by bcnewbie (tues) that we missed :crying:...

    if we could form a membership for this group, put in monthly contributions (say S$15.00). these funds will be used for court and birdie payments. members will also play a more active role to look out for courts that are already booked. then we will not have "not-show" cases happening :eek:. and if we have shortage of players, guests will pay S$5.00 per session... just my 2 cents worth...

    lastly, tq to all that have contributed :D...
