Thank you for doing all the leg work. As much as I like the location, facility and 7' depth, I am not sure it is worth switching either Sunday or Thursday nights at this point. This is because we are getting 15 to 20 players on both nights in Los Gatos, and the price is far less than what Fremont High School is asking. Nevertheless, the distance/traffic to Los Gatos is a bit of an issue. In my opinion, having a more centralized location, such as Sunnyvale, for one night would be a good idea if we could get 6 to 7 lanes of 7' depth. It would also give us backup in case Los Gatos goes south on
As an alternative, when club puck is ready to ramp back up to three times a week, would it be possible to get Tuesday evenings? Frankly, I don't think we are ready to ramp up to three days a week just yet, but maybe in a few months we will be.
BTW, the $11/lane plus $20/hr is not unreasonable considering what other pools are charging. I have seen that number reduced to $8/lane (all in) under special circumstances and heavy negotiation. I imagine, or at least hopeful, that we can reduce the cost per lane down if we negotiated and were willing to sign up for a long term commitment of some type.
My two cents,
Okay, got the word on pool availability and cost.
M, Th 8-9:30 shared with Polo team as before. Unlikely to get anothe 7 ft lane. So, same narrow section or 4.5ft section
Sunday any time between 1-7pm, as much of the 7 ft area as we want.
$11 per lane per hour Plus $20/hr. That means 6 lanes for 2 hours is $172. 6 lanes for 1.5 hour is $129, 5 lanes for 1.5 hr is $112.5
