At the end of the day its a business and while I have printed this thread out and turned it into my manager. I can't say if he's read them or thrown them away, he gets hundreds of emails from one weekend alone (I've seen it). If the owners don't want to spend money to improve or change things there's really nothing I can do. I make $8.00/hr so I'm in no position to do anything. The air fill stations if I'm told 4000psi its 400psi. The airball like I've tried to explain and someone else has pointed out, SC personally owns the very top field and the other two belong to Mike. SC is not responsible for those fields, if its not set up its not setup, no one works for nothing.

If you want to re-arrange the hyberball fields, that's something I'd bring up to the manger. Only reason we can't let people do that kind of work is because of liabilities should you get injured. That and SC is only open weekends and not so much during the week unless a group is booked/. I'm sure people will hate it if a field was shut down even if its for maintenance, trust me people will complain about anything and everything.


With regards to having a second ref on private groups. A private group is ran by what we call a "head ref". By our definition a head ref needs to be able to ref by himself. A second is only brought in when there a new ref that needs to get trained, or the group is too large or gets out of control. I know some players who claim that we are under staffed; well it is a weekend only job and most have a full time job elsewhere and SC is for supplemental income. The idea is that all members of the group are friends and can play 'nice' with each other, granted this is not always the case. If the ref feels a need for a second he will ask, or if you feel the need for one you can bring it up to management and see what happens.

PS. It's my summer vacation so I haven't bothered to check the forums till now.

Kuwok,

I would like to see the air compressors by the rental/air stations turned up to 4300-4500 psi for standard 4500 psi fills. I would understand that the reasoning for this would be in relation to maintenance, but that is a false assumption. With the amount of usage on a normal weekend at SC, the same amount of maintenance is needed even if fills were capped at 3800 psi. Additionally, this tends to be a reoccurring annoyance for some players who play in the father fields such as Germany, Cambodia, Cube, (etc.) and an inconvenience during Decay of Nations. The last thing a player dislikes is running out of air and having to walk away in the middle of a game because they need to refill. For some players, that extra 700 psi can get them at least a couple more pods and more time in play.


I understand the frustrations about the 4500 air station, I was a player at SC before I started working there. I've asked to turn the air up to at least 4300 but I was told it was "unsafe." I would love to turn it up like it is in the arenas but I'm not about to lose my job over it.

In regards to the arenas airball and hyperball fields. We have 2 hyperball fields, Lego Land and Rockets, theres not much space there so we can't keep changing it around. With airball, its hit and miss. Some weeks theres no one around and some weeks it does get very busy. For the most part its not crowded and we average about 30 people. We have tried to set up 2 fields and what ends up happening is that all the teams go on one and the other one is left for everyone else. The field for everyone sees little to no action. Trust me I've worked up there for several months and our previous supervisor had worked in the arenas for nearly 2 years.

Another thing, setting up the field can take 2-3 hours with 2-3 people working on it. Theres only one hose so it takes time to fill all 30-40 bunkers, which takes up most of the time. I understand some of you may say to have more people work on it but again 1 hose, the company is not going to pay a bunch of people to sit around waiting for a bunker to fill with water.

So please understand that with the amount of time it takes to set p one field and the number of players we have, we will rarely setup two fields.
