I wanted to thank everyone who has come out to our Meetups. I think we have a nice group established and I am sure that we are going to continue to grow. This is our way of paying for the new balls that are provided at every Meetup and the cost of running the site.
I would like to avoid collecting money on the court so this event is solely for the purpose of colleting the on-line fee. There is a set fee regardless of the amount of games played. This will have the advantage of encouraging more play. It doesn’t cost anymore to play 10 times a month as it does twice a month. The fee I am setting amounts to each member buying a little more than 2 cans of balls per month which I don’t think is too overwhelming. This is only going to apply to active members. I am not looking to collect money from those who have an interest in our group but haven’t, as yet, been able to play. My calculation over the last month for games played/participant sets this fee to be about $6.50 per member each month.
I would like everyone to send me your phone number so I can contact you easily if I need to. The best way is to communicate via the Meetup app but, in the short term, it may not be reliable. My number is [masked] if anyone needs to reach me.
Thanks again for your participation.
