There have been many questions regarding Whistle Binkies Volle yball in he mist of the Stay at Home order. 

Will we still have a season? It is our hope that the season will still be able to happen. We are moving ahead with plans to have the season. 

Should I register my team as if the season is going to happen? Yes !!! I need to have the teams that want to play register ASAP. It is a lengthy process to compete the registration and complete the schedule. If teams wait until after May 4 to register, I will not have enough time to complete the schedule, etc. I have extended the registration until Monday, April 27. 

How do I complete registration if Whistle Binkies is closed? You may drop off your roster and check at Whistle Binkies on the Lake Wednesday- Saturday between 11:00 – 8:00. Whistle Binkies is open during those hours for Take-Out food. There is a box in the Beer Garden where you can drop off the roster and check. You can also mail the roster and check to Whistle Binkies on the Lake, 247 Woodlake Dr SE, Rochester, MN 55904. 

I don’t have access to a printer because I am out of work……how do I print the roster sheet? You can write the information on a plain sheet of paper and turn that in with your check. Make sure you include Team Name, Captains Names and Email Addresses and Phone Number. Preferred Night of Play (must include a Second Choice of Night, Names of All Other Players. 

How come the website is no longer available? The website is still available, but unfortunately, our web designer has decided to stop managing the website. I am very Thankful to him for providing such a great product, and service, in the past. I am in the process of working with another company to provide the software. The old web address, will remain the address. It will soon have a new look. 

What happens if the season is cancelled? If the season is cancelled, the money that you paid will be refunded. In fact, I will wait to cash any of the checks until the season actually starts. If the season is shortened, I will take a look at refunding a portion of the entry fee. 

Are there many spots still available for all nights? Yes…..this is probably due to the uncertainty of the season happening? There are plenty of open spots available for every night of play. 

Finally, everybody please stay safe and healthy. It is a very trying time for everybody. There is too much uncertainty as too when the Stay at Home order will be lifted, and the bar/restaurants will be able to open again. Let’s all stay positive and move forward,
