Our membership now stands at 120 members as we welcomed 14 new members to our club at the beginning of July. Please introduce yourselves and enjoy playing with our new inductees. Remember we all started playing and learning this game not that long ago.
At our recent committee meeting we have resolved a couple of issues
our members suggested and were concerned with.
1) Orange Onyx Pure 2 balls will now be available in addition
to the selection of other coloured balls in the blue bin.
2) Our guest policy was revamped as follows
a) All guests are welcomed at the most 8 visits per membership year
and must be accompanied by the inviting member
b) Guest must sign in and indicate the time of arrival, pay $5.00.
Inviting member must sign or initial in column beside guest signature.
c) Inviting member will ensure their guest does not play
if there are 18 members in attendance.
3) An interim membership (IM) program has been approved. Basically, if you know you are going to be absent for one month or more, you are welcome to choose a substitute player from the waiting list. They will replace you (the member) for the duration of your absence. They will be charged $25/month, or any part of a month.
