    Arrow We hope that some of our CCC players will turn up after 8:30pm

    seems like over crowed again this week, especially 730pm.... c urs tonight

    .
    Just phoned MSAC to book for more courts. Only one extra court is available, from 8:30pm... but till 9:00pm only. But MSAC said if there are any cancellations, they will give them to us.

    We hope that some of our CCC players will turn up after 8:30pm.

    Regarding to the purpose of posting online, it is the only way for us to monitor how many are coming. Without this info we would be lost; We would not know how many courts would be required.

    And just looking back at our last 2 reports...

    Welcoming our first-timer(s) to our Wednesday CCC@MSAC:
    Peter-K, Alvin-T, Vern-C and Ziyang
    .

    Courts hired: (All courts to 11:00pm)
    (1) Court No.10 ... from 7:30pm
    (2) Court No.11 ... from 8:30pm
    (3) Court No.6 ..... from 9:00pm
    (4) Court No.1 ..... from 10:00pm
    (5) Court No.2 ..... from 10:00pm
    (6) Court No.12 ... from 10:30pm

    At the end of the night, all players were on court playing... since we had 6 courts. Some were playing Singles games. Some were already tired.

    Welcoming our 6 first-timer(s) to our Wednesday CCC@MSAC:
    Ha-N, Cliff-S, Ian-E, Soon-L, Max-L and Eoin-L
    .

    (6) Court No.2 ..... from 10:00pm
    (7) Court No.12 ... from 10:30pm

    At the end of the night, all players were on court playing because we had 7 courts. Some were playing Singles games. Some were already tired.

    So, on 23-Jul-2008, when 9 players booked in, 24 turned up.
    And on 30-Jul-2008, when 14 players booked in, 28 turned up.

    For today 6-Aug-2008, when 21 players booked in... Will we get more than 32 turning up?

    Perhaps, it would come a day when MSAC could not provide us with more courts, we would have to say "Booking in for CCC at MSAC is mandatory".

    Arrow Session Report: Wednesday CCC@MSAC 6-Aug-2008

    .
    Greetings,

    Here is our Session Report: Wednesday CCC@MSAC 6-Aug-2008.

    Although 24 players booked in to attend our session, a total of 36 players turned up. Luckily, we could hire extra courts for the night.

    Welcoming our 9 first-timer(s) to Wednesday CCC@MSAC:
    Karen-L, Franco-M, Jennifer-OS, Antong-L, Shane-T, James-S, Keith-W, Yin-W and Laura-L
    .

    Courts hired:
    (1) Court No.10 ... from 7:30pm to 11:00pm
    (2) Court No.11 ... from 8:30pm to 11:00pm
    (3) Court No.6 ..... from 9:00pm to 11:00pm
    (4) Court No.9 ..... from 8:30pm to 9:00pm
    (5) Court No.1 ..... from 10:00pm to 11:00pm
    (6) Court No.2 ..... from 10:00pm to 11:00pm
    (7) Court No.12 ... from 10:30pm to 11:00 pm
    At the end of the night, most players were on court playing because we had 7 courts.

    CCC Booking In:
    As suggested in Post#580, soon we would have to say "Booking in for CCC at MSAC is mandatory". Last night was a nightmare for all of us !!! And I didn't get to play until everything was settled down (at around 10:00pm). Even the players from our neighbouring court (Court No.11) complained to us (at around 8:15pm) that our big attendance was causing distractions/disturbances to them.

    CC Shuttlecocks usage
    :
    Our players are becoming more aware of our shuttlecock usage system. It's great to find our players entering a court with a shuttlecock in the middle of the court under the net, awaiting for them to start their next game. For CCC Shuttlecocks Policy: click here .

    CCC Whiteboard usage:
    Our players are also getting to understand the usage of our CCC Whiteboard system. However, during the last hour the night, we did not require to use it because there were more than enough courts for everyone.

    More and more 'stronger' players are attending our CCC Wednesday Session. We are now indicating these 'stronger' players with the letter "S".

    But what is good about our 'stronger' players is that they are willing to play with our 'weaker' players. Perhaps, they are aware of our CCC policy, namely "We insist that CCC should look after all players, regardless of their skill levels".

    Perhaps, some of our CCC players have read our thread located at: click here .

    CCC Supper:
    Supper was held at Patony Restaurant, our nearest supper place (see map link here).
    7 attended. It was sad that we have to goodbye to our Irish players, Eoin and Jennifer, who will be leaving Melbourne this Saturday 9-Aug-2008.

    Overall, it was another GREAT night at CCC Badminton.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    1 court at 7:30-8:30 is just as how you put it, nightmare, its a wednesday, middle of the week, how many players would be able to stay till 9 or even 10pm just to get a run of more games. Even when the turn out was not as great with 36 players at 7:30pm, you would expect maybe a third to turn up at 7:30, and the rest to turn up by 8-8:30pm, which by that time you would have every "players" that are not playing to be just standing and waiting for possibly 40 minutes for a game.

    Dont know if we can call it a great night with some of those facts, basically, its overcrowded especially the first hour. It'll be interesting how you can "control" or ensure that people only turn up after 8:30pm or even after 9pm when you have 3-4 courts for everyone.

    We should also not wait till Mid day on wednesday to book additional courts, coz most courts get booked 1 week in advance, so you will 99% of the time find no additional courts.

    Daniel, fully understand....but people alway wait til last minute to make sure they can make it.....so is pretty hard to book more court until last min.

    From last night situation, although last hour we able to get more courts for players, but most people only play 3 to 4 games from 730pm-1000pm, plus people start leaving after 10pm becasue they " get bored" or got to walk up early morning next day. all these really make difficulty for organising......

    Hi DanielPJ,

    You have to be at all our CCC sessions to understand the whole situation.

    Basically, there are 2 categories of players that come to our CCC sessions, namely;
    (1) Come early, leave early, and
    (2) Come late, leave late.

    Somehow, you will find that our CCC Badminton at MSAC (Wednesday) caters for the "(2) Come late, leave late". Therefore, only adults turn up. On the other hand, CCC Badminton at Waverley (Friday) caters for the "(1) Come early, leave early". And therefore, both adults and school children turn up.

    We could see that some players leave our Wednesday sessions, example; Serena-W, Dylan-M, Merfyu-M, etc ..., but some players come, example; Kylie-L, Yin-L, WeiLit-C, etc ... Why??? Only they could answer.

    Of course, we could change it the other way around... but no such plans have been talked about during our CCC Suppertime Meetings.

    Anyway, it's good that btchia is starting our "Booking In" earlier.

    Arrow CCC Badminton will consider 32 players as "Full House" for our sessions

    Quote Originally Posted by chris@ccc View Post

    .
    Question: Someone asked... Did we try to turn away players (for those who have not booked in) as soon as we find that we could get more than 32 players (our planned maximum) for Wednesday 6-Aug-2008?

    Answer: Yes, we did. We told these players that we were "Full House", namely;
    1. Yin-W (friend of Andre-C)
    2. Laura-L (friend of Andre-C)
    3. Kelvin-L (said he would post in future)
    4. Joe-L (said his internet connection broke down)
    5. Lee-C (said he would be happy playing 1 or 2 games)
    6. Siva-S (said he wasn't expected to come until the last minute)

    Siva-S understood our situation and did not play until after 10:30pm. And at suppertime, he did not complain, but enjoyed our company. And I did not get to play until around 10:00pm.

    Also, Wei Lit-C understood our situation. Luckily, 2 of his friends, David-T and Niki-P, decided not to come.

    CCC Badminton will consider 32 players as "Full House" for our sessions. Unfortunately, more players will be turned away if they do not book in.

    It looks like more and more players are understanding our situation. We already have 9 players booked in by Friday, 5 days before our Wednesday's session.
