Windows 7: Call 9-1-1 for Tennis Court misuse...?

Call 9-1-1 for Tennis Court misuse...?

`

An emergency newsletter arrived from the Condo Association Board that "governs" our 134 unit community after a few 8 & 15 year-olds "violated tennis court protocol" last week. Fines by the HOA board for such of $50 or more are not uncommon for such "crimes" -

NOTICE TO ALL HOMEOWNERS

Spring has sprung at Wintergreen and unfortunately so has the misuse of the Tennis Court.

To reiterate...the Tennis Court is for playing ONLY. This means there is to be NO baseball playing, hockey playing, dog walking or any other activity than Tennis.

If you see the tennis court being misused in any way, your first phone call should be to the Evesham Township police. Your next step is to forward to this office an official written complaint (email is acceptable). This complaint needs to include who is using the tennis court, when it is being used and what activity they are doing (Other than Tennis).

The only way the Association can put a stop to this activity is with all residents following this protocol.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation

Can you imagine calling 9-1-1 to report a few 8 year-olds for misuse of a tennis court? The anonymous callers have done just that dozens of times - most recently just last week. We're not talking vandalism of any kind here, either.


The newsletter - PDF --> 03-24-10_tennis_court_letter_.pdf

The kids have used the tennis court for years to play in. New board members pushed through a ~$30,000 renovation to the tennis court in early 2009, which to me now looks like a secured Federal facility -

Meanwhile, located about 100' into the dense wooded area, the play area for the children of this ~120 unit community - very appealing, I must say -

CALL 9-1-1 for Tennis Court misuse...?

Personal - you bet. Kids here -- 8, 11, 15, 20

Comments greatly appreciated.

I think that $30,000 would have been better spent on the kids facilities which are really poor, I'm not sure how these HOA boards work but if you can maybe it's time to replace them with sane people.

BTW - the tennis court is directly across the street from a board member's condo.

I agree 100%.

When one holds a position of 'power' one must be entitled to abuse it...


That's just ludicrous. I'm sure the Police are impressed as well with those calls.

It would seem that the bored Board members, acting on behalf of "anonymous" callers, bypassed childhood or have obliterated all memories of their tender years.
This is all so petty.

I agree.

Turns out that most of the board members are the "anonymous" callers that have been calling the police, specifically the board member that lives across from the tennis court. He and his wife believe it to be theirs, apparently.

So, what does one do when a NERF football hits the bumper of your car?

Call Police, of course and request back-up and accident investigation team, probably as well.

That is what "Mr. Wonder" (NJ TAG = WONDER) did about 2 years ago.

Certainly, if a sponge touches your car because it is in the form of a football and is thrown by a then 7-year old, then that definitely deserves to waste precious police resources as multiple police vehicles arrived on scene to "investigate". I wonder how much the insurance company covered!

Thanks. . .

Next Question --> definition and picture(s) of a "suspicious looking vehicle" in your neighborhood...

What type of car and at what point in time do you call police?

Start a fundraiser and organize a community project to build a huge play area for the kids and boycott the use of the tennis courts.....

I battled with the Condo Nazi's at my condo in New Mexico.
I'm so glad that the ex-wife got it in the divorce - now the Condo Nazi's are her problem!
