Winter 2017 Newsletter

Happy New Year! We are happy to announce a number of changes in 2017!

First and foremost — ‘BFTVC’ is now an  officially recognized nonprofit in the state of New York. We are now ‘BFTVC Inc.’

This means we’ll finally be able to rent out new gym space (in addition to School of the Future) and schedule additional meetups throughout the week. This means more pick-up games offered in a variety of formats, more tournaments, and possibly even league play in the future.

Secondly — Speaking of tournaments, we’re super excited to bring back our wildly popular BFTVC tournament on Saturday 1/14/17. This time we will be holding it at an even larger venue to accommodate our group. Signup will begin on Jan 9th at 5pm. Get ‘em while they’re hot! See the Meetup Discussion board for details. https://www.meetup.com/Basketball-for-the-vertically-challenged/boards/thread/50497051

Thirdly As we’re sure you’ve all seen by now, BFTVC now has an official logo! And we all know that old adage, “Where there’s a logo, there’s t-shirts and merch.” We’ll soon be offering BFTVC t-shirts in black, white, blue, and red – the four classic BFTVC team colors we wear each Saturday.

Pretty soon we can all look this cool:

Finally, some laundry list items

  • Credit Time Limit (new policy!): There will now be an 8-week time limit in which we ask that you use any outstanding credits. If the credit is not used during this time, we will simply issue a refund.
  • Waivers: For those of you who have not already done so, this is a reminder that you are required to sign our online liability waiver in order to be eligible to play.

You can find the online form here: goo.gl/cxdo4N

  • Refund Policy Reminder: You can get a refund/credit if you change your RSVP, as long as you do so at least 24 hours in advance. OR, you can still get a refund/credit even if you change your RSVP within 24 hours, as long as you post a comment on the event page and someone picks up your spot (BOTH are required).
  • Sign-ups: As always, remember to keep an eye out for new meetups which are released the weekend before the next month begins. (e.g. November meetups posted on October 24/25) Also, please remember to never show up unannounced.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions – please place them on a sticky note and attach them to Marc’s back when he’s not looking, or alternatively you can shoot us an email at bballshorties@gmail.com.

See you on the court, shortly!
