Many members have noticed that our Club’s ice situation seems to be worse than in the past, and you would be correct if you thought so. You should, however, also know that our Club’s staff have been working extremely hard since December to try to mitigate the problems.
I have outlined below a summary of what the issue is and the steps that the club has been taking to rectify the situation. The Board has been monitoring the state of affairs and we have sought external advice. Over the past month, as the ice has deteriorated, members have been growing increasingly frustrated. Any member with an issue regarding the ice is free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
