-NYKP Winter Programs
Good news that we are able to keep our three-session-per-week pool schedule for this winter. Based on the survey that we conducted recently, the Wed/Sat/Sun schedule is still the most popular thus will stay. We also designed our special events based on the survey.
We are very excited to announce that Toronto/Montreal/Boston clubs (and more to come) are confirmed to join our A/B tournament in February and April.
We will also have local mashup and/or development tournaments in January and March. Exact Dates to be announced at annual meeting. So, work off that winter layer and get ready folks!
Our first intro session of this season is on Sat 12/9.
As we are still finalizing the calendar, more activities will be added as we go. It will be an exciting pool season!
So if you have not yet renewed your membership, hurry up! Low rates won’t last forever!!
-Fee Structure Adjustment
To catch up with increased pool and boathouse cost, we will have to adjust our fee structure slightly:
Our current fee structure:
Annual Play Membership $250
Winter Play Membership $175
Summer Play Membership $125
Play by session $20/Session
Annual Play Membership $250 (unchanged)
Winter Play Membership $200 (up $25)
Summer Play Membership $150 (up $25)
Play by session $20/Session (unchanged)
Only Annual Play Membership has boat storage rights.
Only Annual play/Seasonal Play membership has voting rights.
The new fee structure is slightly higher but is still very low compared to the past a few years. Although officers and members are volunteering their precious time to the club for free, we are still battling increased cost to keep renting our pool and boathouse. If we let our membership lapse, one day we might not be able to afford sessions, or even a whole season. That means we are counting on each and every one of you to support our own club! Please renew your membership on time, especially when the lower rates are still valid.
For your convenience, credit card payments will be available at the meeting.
