Special Drink Discount Card Available For All Volleyball Players
Whistle Binkies on the Lake has partnered with Oskar Blues Brewery to bring Binkies Leagues volleyball players a special deal. Oskar Blues Pinner (a very good seesion IPA) will be available to all volleyball players for only $2.50 for a pint glass. This will be a special price to go along will whatever other drink special the bar is running the night that you are in.
To take advantage of this discount, your must present your discount card to your server / bartender before you order. Captains, please pick up the envelope with enough cards for your entire team on your next night of volleyball.
Not only will you be able to take advantage of this special on the nights that you play league volleyball, but we will extend the special to you 7 days and nights a week, all the way thru Labor Day.
This is just a small way for Whistle Binkies to say "Thank You" for being part of their volleyball league.
Volleyball is only cancelled in the case of threatening weather. Threatening weather is the presence of lightning in the area or dangerous high winds and heavy rain.
DO NOT call the bar to ask if the matches will be played. As a general rule, you should always assume that the matches will be played. Many times it may be raining heavy in the NW part of town, but there will be clear weather SE. I will rarely post the cancellation of matches for the entire night....too often, this type of scenario plays out: The 5:30 matches end up being cancelled due to lightning, but the 6:30 are played in light rain. The 7:30 and 8:30 matches have absolutely beautiful weather.
Procedure should be as follows: assume that the matches will be held. If the weather does not allow the match to start on time, please wait for 20-30 minutes to see if the weather clears....if it does, you can start the match and play as many games as time allows (do not go over the allotted 1 hour of play as it will affect the following matches). If the weather does not clear in the 20-30 minutes, the match should then be cancelled. Unfortunately, the busy schedule does not allow for make-up games.
Finally, it is time for volleyball to start, and this year we have a lot of new teams playing at Whistle Binkies. Veterans, please help out the new players.
For everybody, if you have not yet turned in a signed waiver, you are not allowed to play. Captains, it is your responsibility to make sure that everyone has signed one, and YOU have turned it in. Also, please respect your fellow competitors and all other Whistle Binkies patrons. Dress appropriately (must wear a shirt), no foul language, and use good sportsmanship. During your match, please do not take up a whole bunch of tables with your personal items....there may be other patrons who want to watch your matches or enjoy the weather. We definitely want your team to stick around after your match, but just don't reserve too many tables....thank you.
If there are questions on the rules, they are posted (along with schedules and standings) on the bulletin board by the rest rooms. Please don't ask the bartenders or other staff about the rules, as they may not know the answer. If there is a discrepancy after a point....simply replay the point.
For those of you who are new, especially captains, it is your responsibility to report your scores after each match. It is a very simple procedure. Just follow the directions under the 'Report Score' tab at left.
Once again for everyone........we thank you for being here and we hope you have a great season. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at Rich@Batchelor.com . Please include your name, team name, and night of play.
