URGENT: CLUBHOUSE SURVEY

It would be appreciated if you would complete, by Nov 23/15, the Surrey Parks and Rec survey at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8STBDDY.

This is extremely important for our clubhouse construction.  Also, please consider forwarding the link to as many friends and family of Bayside Athletic Association as possible to complete the survey.

Please place this link on as many social media sites as you can access.

While many have completed this annual survey in the past, and even though our project is in the development phase, it is still extremely important to have another good response from the Rugby community. The importance of this survey cannot be understated or the response underestimated.

The 2 week survey ends Nov 23/15. Time is of the essence. Please notify all of urgency to respond

The last survey we had 268 responses (96 adults, 172 youth).  Let’s reach a goal of 500.

Critical questions worthy of comment are:

9. How satisfied are you with the “availability” of washroom facilities in Surrey’s athletic parks.

11. Would you support and make use of concession services in the park if they were available?

15. How satisfied are you with the customer service, provided by City staff, in relation to general inquiries, field booking information or response time to reported issues? – Delay in the start of construction

16. Please rank the following items in order of importance based on what you feel are the most important issues in Surrey Parks; #1 washroom and changing room availability.  Any comments regarding the club house would be beneficial

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IT IS EXTREMELY APPRECIATED

Bayside Clubhouse Procurement Process

The following was of interest at the Bayside Clubhouse meeting on July 6/15.  People wanted to know how they could assist in the building of the Clubhouse.

We are currently working on the design of the clubhouse with the City and ThinkSpace Architects.  In order to maintain steady progress of developments, the City is starting to work on the procurement process.  They are currently working on a Prequalification for General Contractors. The Prequalification will be a Request For Expressions of Interest posted on the City’s website and BC Bid. Interested sub trades should contact GC’s to see if they are putting in an application. It is expect to be posted in the middle-end of August. GC’s who successfully qualify will be asked to bid on the tender when it is issued.

This is Bayside’s opportunity to identify a “Rugby” friendly GC.  I would like to have a qualified GC and sub trades from our Rugby community in charge of the construction.  This will help ensure we get the best bang for our buck, have a Clubhouse built by those that know what a clubhouse is for, and provide benefit to those that have been involved in Rugby.

Please give consideration to this request, pass on to any interested parties, and notify me of intentions by emailing President@BaysideRFC.com.

CLEAN – UP THANK YOU

A BIG Thank You to the following people for their assistance with the storage bin clean-up and equipment/uniform collection this weekend:

  • Gregg Dunning,
  • Rob Verrelli,
  • Andrew Fiddis,
  • Tyler Buchanan,
  • Trevor Purrcell,
  • Nolan Dunning,
  • Ian Gendall,
  • Lee Sullivan,
  • Ondrej Vasica

We were able to purge and conquer the mass of Bayside “stuff”. Thanks to those that dropped off merchandise and uniforms. We were able to record and catalogue some of the Bayside inventory. We also found some long lost merchandise that will be for sale shortly. If you were unable to attend the field to drop off merchandise please contact your appropriate Club section Director to make arrangements. Everybody’s assistance in helping us to prepare for the upcoming season would be greatly appreciated.

STORAGE BIN CLEAN-UP AND EQUIPMENT/UNIFORM COLLECTION

We are looking for help from the entire club this weekend, July 18 & 19, 2015, 10:00am start.  In order to be organized and prepared for the upcoming Mini, Junior, Senior, and Over 40 2015/16 seasons, we are cleaning out and reorganizing the “Green Bin” at the south end of our home field at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Equipment Manager, Gregg Dunning, is leading the way in getting prepared for the 2015/16 season.

In addition to this reorganization, we are collecting all Bayside merchandise, equipment, and uniforms for inventory. If you have been holding onto any Bayside merchandise please bring it to the “Green Bin” on July 18 or 19/15.

Please give serious consideration to assisting with this large project.  “Many hands make light work.”  Your assistance in these two activities is very much appreciated.

CLUBHOUSE UPDATE

The City of Surrey has identified an appropriate architect, Thinkspace Architecture, for the Bayside Athletic Association Field House. Thinkspace Architecture also has a team of sub-consultants available to work on the project. Thinkspace Architecture is now in the process of drafting the detailed design (blueprints) of the field house. The City’s Planning and Development Manger has explained the construction of the field house is expected to begin in September 2015 and is expected to be completed in April 2016. A development and planning sign should be installed at the construction site any day.

I have requested the City of Surrey Planning and Development Manager and Thinkspace Architecture meet with the Bayside Athletic Association members and supporters. An information meeting to review the construction process has been scheduled for 6:00pm July 6, 2015 at the Rotary Field House in South Surrey Athletic Park. If you have ever inquired about the status of the Bayside Athletic Association Field House it is highly recommended that you attend this meeting. Please notify and ensure any supporters of our home and community project attend.
