Monday and Friday game schedule

As many of you know, when our snowbirds leave, our tables diminish on Monday and Friday. We are testing a pre-signup via email for the month of May… which may be extended to June if it is effective.

Bi-weekly emails will be sent out requesting your response as to whether you and a partner will be playing on the following Monday or Friday. The numbers will be collated and if there are three or more tables planning to play, the game will progress. If not, the game will be cancelled and you will receive an email of cancellation on Thursday evening for Friday or Sunday evening for Monday.

Thanks for participating and trying to ensure that we have sufficient players to hold meaningful games on Mondays and Fridays.

Special Games and Game Fees

The Management Committee has listened to your comments concerning special games and the additional fees for those games and made the decision to limit the number of other special games with additional fees in the future.  One exception is to continue having charity games at an extra cost of about $1 USD per player to benefit local charities.

The Management Committee is currently reviewing our need to maintain a reserve fund. Reserve funds are required primarily to cover the cost of an unanticipated need to move the club to another facility should our lease be cancelled. Our reserves have been significantly depleted by renovations to the building and the new chairs.  Additionally, we have had increases in overhead expenses, especially in rent, electrical costs, and housekeeping services.  Rent alone has increased from $ 11,000 to $14,000 pesos monthly since  becoming an A.C. Furthermore, rent, CFE (power) and maid expenses will continue to increase by about 4% annually due to the cost of living.
