SCHEDULE CHANGES - SPRING 2015
We are adding TUESDAY night play to our weekly playing schedule in Fairfield for the months of May-July . (Definitely 7-11pm, but likely a 6 or 6:30pm start if interest justifies it)
These are 'make-up' playing sessions the Senior Center is allowing us from sessions cancelled previously due to special events and Building repairs in 2014-15, and also due to delayed 7pm start on Thursdays in Spring to accomidate their Spring evening programing.
I've also scheduled them, in part, due to the closing of some venues in Stratford and Shelton that some of our players previously visited on Tuesdays for an additional weekly playing night.
Turnout on these added nights in Fairfield, along with the other nightly and weekend sessions , will help determine our fall schedule. So please support the playing days most attractive to you with your attendance .
We will continue our popular Thursday night and Saturday afternoon play in FF through the summer, and may resume some Tuesdy sessions in September or October.
If the added play opportunities this Spring result in more new players, and/or enough of you increasing your CT TTA - Fairfield/Bethany total weekly participation, so our total weekly participation numbers increase, the FF Senior Center and P&R directors might allow either seasonal, or even year-round increases from our past limit of about 104 yearly sessions to 120 or more sessions per year with additional Tuesday evening play.
Likewise, participation levels in Bethany (currently Sunday nights) could increase our likelyhood for an additional weekly night there, or influence changes in the playing schedule there - especially next fall & winter .
While I know we all have competing demands on our time, playing our sport twice a week instead of once, or three times a week instead of twice adds to your satisfaction of skill improvement, and especially the participant health benefits of our sport if an expanding schedule jstified by increasing participation allows it.
I think most of you appreciate my dedication to providing the highest quality facilities at the most attractive playing times that our overall participation can support.
So sharing our sport with freinds, classmates, co=workers and neighbors, and adjusting your schedule to help support our added play in Bethany, and/or our Spring 'trial' of 2 rather than 3 weekly sessions in Fairfield are the best ways we can grow the number of players, and the number of weekly opportunities for play in our spacious, beautiful, brightly lit Connecticut Gyms.
Thanks again for helping me bring our great health-enhancing lifetime international sport out of the garages and basements of american into the quality gyms where, with a friendly but competitive atmosphere, and available coaching when and where it's needed, it can grow to it's proper image and popularity.
