Tomorrow evening is our first play session at the new venue. Here are some things that will help:
MAPS, PHOTOS, PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Our website has been updated with this stuff. Please go to our about page to view it.
Because it’s our first time, please try to arrive a bit earlier than usual, so that you can check out the centre before play commences (toilets, etc, etc).
After entering the driveway (there is a big “VICTOR” sign at the entrance), drive all the way to the rear to find parking.
· We are likely to be arriving earlier than other groups, so avoid parking on the north side or you might get blocked in – it is double parking (cars parking behind other cars).
We have 7 out of the 14 courts at the venue. As you walk in, our courts are on the left hand side (we plan to stick a notice on the wall showing court numbers, etc).
THE COMPUTER AND MONEY COLLECTION
We will be set up on a table on the left hand side in the sitting area. Please pay there and get entered into the computer as usual.
NEW SESSION COST
As previously mentioned, the member cost is now $15 (up from $12 previously). Non-members are $18. Again, try to bring correct money if possible.
This is very important. We are sure to have some teething problems on our first night, so I ask that everyone be patient while we sort things out.
CALLING OUT NAMES & COURTS
When each game finishes (when the alarm goes off), please return to the sitting area quickly.
· We will not be “shouting out” court assignments for the next game because we don’t want to disturb the other groups.
There are white bins located between the courts. These are for “warm-up” shuttles, and the shuttles are free for all groups to use (we will also bring some warm-up shuttles of our own just in case).
· Please put your used shuttles into these bins. Rubbish shuttles will be regularly removed and disposed of by the centre staff.
· Please make sure you bring any good shuttles back to the sitting area).
That’s it for now folks.
