The Summer schedule is now available on the website and mobile. It basically follows what we’ve done in season’s past with skill level time scheduled for the first morning slot and the rest of the time Member Open Play. One specific change is Saturday on West where the courts will be split with Advanced on courts 1-4, Beginners on courts 5 & 6 and East is Intermediate. There is no Official Challenge Court play June through August, if players want to play more aggressively, they should rack up with like players and rotate onto any court together.
There is no current plan to change the gate code for the summer. We implore you not to share the code or we will be forced to take action that will affect everyone, not just the offenders.
Friday was the last day of school, so parking is now allowed on the frontage road at the West Courts through August 9, 2022.
Thank you to those who have replied to the Survey sent last week. If you have not yet replied, please do as we will be using your replies for planning events and as one of the criteria for scheduling the Fall. The survey was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org via SurveyMonkey, please check your trash/spam if you did not receive it. A reminder will be sent next week to those who have not replied.
For the summer, the equipment boxes will be CLOSED BUT NOT LOCKED to allow access to balls, first aid, etc. Buckets of balls will have 10-12 each. The expectation once again is that the balls should not be taken off property and these numbers should suffice. Replacements will be made as necessary throughout the summer; please place damaged balls in the baskets attached to the side of the equipment boxes.
The Board modified the Guest policy based on what we’ve learned since the policy has been in effect.
The Board has developed a Code of Conduct, please find the document here FHPC Code of Conduct. It will be on the website when we publish the revised Member Area.
Over the summer, the Board is looking into additional ways to bring member value. Stay tuned for details. The next full newsletter will be in August when we open 2022-2023 Membership along with fall plans. One plan is to process club fees (membership, RR’s, tournaments, etc.) by credit card, hopefully this will make the process simpler. Separate email communications will be sent if necessary.
Last but not least! The club is excited to announce Rob Hanford has accepted the position of Treasurer. As mentioned previously Lou Rhodes will be the Board advisor and compliance resource going forward. As of August 31, Walt Conway is officially retiring from the board. While he will continue to provide equipment and maintenance services, he and Danny G will no longer be placing balls on the courts. We are looking for volunteer(s) for this activity. Please Contact Us if you are interested.
Have a great Summer!
See you at the Courts!
