As many of you have probably heard, the rec center on RH Johnson is now closed to residents on Sundays. That means no bowling, darts, billiards, shuffleboard as well as no Lizard Acres Lounge to SCW residents. Oh, but let me add this, the bowling alley IS open to bowling tournaments, which include the public, and they don’t use all the lanes so we could go in and bowl with family and friends. I have heard these tournaments are run by the manager’s son. Who’s getting favoritism? In the heat of the summer, on Sundays when family and friends get together, we can’t go indoors to OUR rec center for recreational fun. Where is the fairness in this? We pay big fees to enjoy OUR facilities. I have heard several excuses….” it’s a business decision” really? Was that a consensus from the owners? NO! Another excuse was they couldn’t get people to work. Well, with their $92,000,000 I think they should either increase hourly wages to encourage staff to work on Sundays or better yet, hire more staff so your staff isn’t overworked. Certainly looks like they could afford it!
There is a petition going around and I hope you all have had an opportunity to sign it in favor of not closing on Sundays. Give us our rec center back!!
No bowling for residents on Sunday???? WTH!!! Not happy with that at all!
Shirleyann, where can we find and sign the Petition against this? This is OUTRAGEOUS!
We are getting more and more taken from us and giving it to the public instead of our residents who actually pay to use them.
I’m so angry that this is happening to all of us. I don’t think we should be paying dues if the public uses them.
This was why we moved here because of all the amenities.
