Colour Promotions, Blackout Dates and Guests

Hi Everyone,

We hope your 2019 has been good to you so far!  Here we are checking in with some updates for the club!

2019 Colour Promotions:  Thank you to all those who have expressed interest in a colour promotion.  After extensive discussion with the executives, all promotions have been finalized and implemented for the year.  No further promotions will be made.  Moving forward, colour promotion will be granted based on the quality of play, sportsmanlike behavior, willingness to play with others and ‘spots’ available in the colour category.

Blackout dates and February Court Restriction: Please note that on February 26, 2019 we have only 3 courts/1 gym (rather than our regular 6 courts/2 gyms).  This is due to a city event outside of our control.

There are current scheduled blackout dates which are posted on the club calendar (https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/calendar/).  It will be your responsibility to check this schedule regularly.

Guests/Dropins are welcome:  $10 per person per evening payable at the beginning of the night.  Please note that guests will not be permitted if there are more than 30 members in attendance during the evening of play.

Rules and Expectations:  Please be reminded to play balanced games.  Only those respecting the club rules will be permitted as members of the club.  Please review the rules at https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/rules/.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Leanne on behalf of the MBC Exec

Badminton Holiday Schedule and Colour Promotion Update

snowmanbad

Hi All

A kind reminder that there will be no badminton from December 25, 2018 to January 3, 2019.  Badminton will resume January 8, 2018.

Please be aware that all colour promotions are on hold until the executive committee has met to discuss a number of challenges that have come up out of the old process.  You will be notified once this process has been improved.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

 

 

No badminton this week and the rules (yes… again)

Just a courtesy reminder that there is no badminton this week.  Please be reminded that it is your responsibility to check the calendar for black out dates.  The schedule can be linked to your google account and can be found here: https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/calendar/.

As requested, see below the rules for how the Board System works.  This can also be found on our Rules page here: https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/rules/.  Those following the rules are welcomed in our club!

HOW THE BOARD SYSTEM WORKS

When a name reaches the top of the “Queue”, it is that member’s turn to pick. Please DO NOT pick on behalf of someone else.

To try to give equal playing time, when picking a game, a member must select 3 additional players from the top 10 players in the queue (not from “Wait 1”, “Wait 2” or “Wait 3” or from players who have just vacated a court).

Pick balanced games and aim for having an even number of colours (e.g., 4 blue players, 4 red players, 2 red players and 2 blue players).

If a player is picked but would rather wait for a different game, that player’s name falls to the bottom of the queue and forfeits his/her “picking” turn.

If you notice someone not following these rules, you can let one of the execs know. That person will be reminded that of the rules to the board system. Otherwise, you may remind them kindly of these expectations.

FRIENDLY REMINDERS

All our members are good people!  Please show courtesy and respect on the court.  Don’t forget that we are all here to have fun!

Only ‘pick’ a game if your name is at the top of the queue. DO NOT pick for someone else.

“Wait 1” and “Wait 2” should be filled at all possible times to ensure as much play time as possible. Due to our limited facility time, please pick games quickly to avoid leaving any court(s) unattended.

Winter Membership is closed/The Board System

Welcome to all the new and old faces to the club!  Yesterday was an exciting start to the new season!

We’re happy to report that membership has hit capacity and membership for the Winter season is closed.  We will not be accepting new members at this time.  Additionally, dropins will not be permitted until further notice.

HOW THE BOARD SYSTEM WORKS

When a name reaches the top of the “Queue”, it is that member’s turn to pick. Please DO NOT pick on behalf of someone else.

When picking a game, a member must select 3 additional players from the top 10 players in the queue (not from “Wait 1”, “Wait 2” or “Wait 3” as those players have already been selected).

Pick balanced games and aim for having an even number of colours (e.g., 4 blue players, 4 red players, 2 red players and 2 blue players).

If a player is picked but would rather wait for a different game, that player’s name falls to the bottom of the queue and forfeits his/her “picking” turn.

If you notice someone not following these rules, you can let one of the execs know. That person will be reminded that of the rules to the board system. Otherwise, you may remind them kindly of these expectations.
