I’m trying to make every Wednesday that I can this summer. I would be okay with a change to Thursday to work around the weather. I’d also be okay with Thursdays as a rain date, but that means a doing the normal weekly round-up in very short order. That may be an unreasonable burden on Gary.
I think it’s more realistic to make an early decision to move indoors. If early means 4:30, that’s fine, but I saw three days of rain predicted on Sunday and would be fine if Gary made the call much earlier, even if that’s a day in advance or more. We risk being indoors on a sunny day, but at least we’re playing tennis and we know everyone has reserved the time on their calendars. I’ll be okay with a move to 5:30 whenever that needs to happen.
HTB’s no-membership policy combined with Gary’s organizational efforts allow us to walk on the court for $10-12 and no more effort than a one-line email. I compare that to a membership at Great Bay, seasonal contracts or spending my own time rounding up three other guys, and then paying $28/hr for court time. Little adjustments like occasionally playing indoors are no big deal for me.
