Winter Resident Club Supplies Cost

We are wintering in Tucson, AZ, and the residents of the park are constantly doing 50/50 drawings to raise money for their clubs. The owner will not pay for the necessary supplies for some of the clubs. Example: Shuffleboard must raise money to pay for basic supplies such as wax, brooms, towels etc.



At the same time players are expected to wear shirts with the name of the park when they play games at other parks.



Does this same thing happen in Florida or Texas or did we just choose a park with a cheap owner? Thank you for your input.

I don't believe it is common.

If the owner will not help out, I would be darned if his park name was on my shirt. (sorry, my shirt with your name is in the wash today)

Exactly. I would also start looking for another place for next year.

It's advertising!!! If he wants you to wear his shirt with his advertising on let him pay!

It's no different than the sticker on the back of you car or truck advertising where you bought it. You pay the dealer $50,000.00 for a truck and he expects you to advertise him for free!!!!! NOT That's the first thing to come off.

Hope you're getting a smoking deal on your lot rental.

Humm; one FL park we stayed had weekly 50/50 drawings to pay for the regular Friday evening happy hour. Never heard of doing that to pay for supplying the parks activities.

Why is the park supplying a happy hour? Sounds like they are really charging for the booze through the 50/50. If they don't have a liquor resale license, they are breaking the law

No, no; the residents held the drawing_for themselves. Happy hour was then free for the residents. Only thing park management did was allow use of the clubhouse.

Everything has to be paid for, one way or the other. The campground may supply some, none or all of the equipment and supplies for a given activity. Quilters supply their own material and sewing gear, musicians bring their own instruments, so why shouldn't shuffleboard players contribute to their own upkeep as well?

But shirts for competitive play is another matter. If the park requires you to represent them with a uniform with their logo, they should provide it. If it's optional, then it's up to you whether peer pressure makes you buy one or not. I ran dart and bowling leagues for several years and found that most establishments subsidized shirts for players but only a few gave them for free. Embroidered shirts are very expensive; it's one thing to outfit a team of 4-5 people, but entirely another if there are 20 or 50 club members.
