Pay Before You Play

We are already being made aware of some complaints about the “pay before you play” policy being instituted. Sorry, but the policy will be instituted and enforced. Yesterday is a perfect example of why. Here is what happened and why this policy must be in place. There was to be a benefit adult COED slow pitch softball tournament for hurricane relief yesterday, Sunday 9/17. It had to be cancelled at the last minute because 2/3 of the teams did not show. Yes, a 2/3 no-show. Love-Hatbox personnel called these teams 48 hours before the tournament; no one answered their phones, but messages were left. The schedule was posted to our Facebook page. There is no excuse for not knowing the schedule. Yet, on the day of the tournament, 67% of the players did not even bother to show up.  We prepped the fields, the concession stand, had workers ready to go on faith that the teams who said they would be there would be there. So, instead of making money for hurricane relief, we lost money because of no-shows. We cannot continue to operate in this manner. We cannot continue to lose money because of the irresponsibility of others. Therefore, the “pay before you play” policy mentioned in a previous post will take effect October 1 and will be enforced.
