Tournaments - Chris Slee

  • Call for tournament volunteers
  • Membership feedback on number, format and timing of tournaments
    • Too bunched together in October
  • Orinda home and away ...
    • Sign up invitation was not out to the entire membership, this was a mistake
    • RTC will be crystal clear that Inter-Club tournaments are open to everyone, with the understanding that the captain will put up the strongest line up from those available
  • Trilogy Rio Vista ...
    • Have mutual difficulty getting enough participation because of the travel and the restricted courts at their location
    • Board will consider dropping this event next year and formalizing the Orinda relationship

Facilities - Bill Van Wagoner

  • Rechargeable Blower will be considered at December meeting
  • Any members with old towels are requested to donate them for court cleanup by putting them in the lockers at Buckeye
  • Court conditions: some cracks are getting wider, causing concerns about safety
    • Jeff Matheson MOD has a standard about vertical offsets before resurfacing; told no cracks are dealt with until there is a "safety" issue
    • Players consider this a safety issue even without a height difference as shoes can catch in cracks
    • Chris Slee mentioned that courts were regularly patched at high schools in the Midwest, between resurfacing
    • Recommendation to take this directly to GRF planning committee
  • Backboard ... talked with GRF about doing a 50-50 split.  Have not yet got to point where we can submit proposal as Bill has been looking into getting a second hand board. Note, recent designs are also sound deadening

Publicity - Ken Steiner

  • Will put in reminders for the Holiday party

  • Showed updated approach for annual membership renewal
