Over the past few months, some members have raised concerns over the club's use of the marked spaces in front of the scoreboard. These spaces were designated for use for the club many years ago to 1) provide a clear view of the scoreboard and 2) ensure the club would have a solid surface to meet and setup tables. These spaces were painted blue simply because this was the only paint the park had available at the time. Per the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Upper Plantation Parking Lot is required to have 2 handicap spaces. These are located near the pavilion where the ground is most level to allow for easier loading and unloading.
In an effort to avoid future confusion, the park has offered to repaint the spaces to better emphasize that these are designated for our use. However, given the park's busy schedule the repainting would not be able to be completed for some time. Therefore, the BCDGA asked the park if they would permit us to handle the repainting and they gave us their blessing. We attempted to repaint the spaces this morning but the low temperature and winds created unsuitable conditions so we will try again in better weather.
We appreciate the concerns raised by our members. Please know that the BCDGA does its best to always work with Tyler State Park and it's other stakeholders to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy their time at the park. Should you have any questions or concerns please let us know by either contacting us or coming to our meetings every first Tuesday of the month at Slack's in Newtown.
