Pickleball Pavilion Lighting
Met with the Musco lighting representative to review the pavilion and lighting needs. Revised proposal from Musco is pending. Ephesus Lighting, a division of Eaton, provides sporting venue lighting but has declined to participate in providing a proposal and recommended that the Cooper Division of Eaton may be a better fit. Continuing to seek additional bids on this project.
Contractor: TBD (most recent progress report provided by RCSC via newsletter).
Since the Marinette courts reopened 4 years ago, it has been Club policy to avoid playing on Courts 1 – 4 prior to 8AM unless no other courts are available.
This is not a hard and fast rule, but an agreement between then AGM Jim Wellman and me that has been respected by our members.
There had been noise complaints from neighbors, and our hope was that this effort on the Club’s part would help ease the tension. It did and has continued to do so.
Should complaints resurface, they might be ignored by RCSC. Very unlikely! SOME of their solutions COULD include: an outright ban on use of those courts on a schedule of their making; a switch to a quieter ball, such as the Onix Fuse 2, on all courts; or a requirement that only “quiet” paddles be used on our courts. Quieter paddles generally provide great control with limited power.
The Club will appreciate your continued efforts to honor this agreement.
