                           BUILDING RENTAL AND MAINTENANCE (cont.)


only a member to show support for community
We no longer use the facilities
We join our pool because it is our community. However when others visit I am ashamed at the condition of the pool area, the stained
          concrete, the chain linked fence and the bathrooms.
I am a senior citizen now, when my children were young we lived at the pool every summer
No longer attend social events, but this is important for young family members. No longer live in the neighborhood, but family was very
           active in the '60s, 70s, and 80s. I was active in the BG Garden Club, member, president, etc. We played tennis, attend
           pool parties, children used playgrounds, etc.
Really do not use the facilities, but like to support our community.
I do not like the change in the policy that does not allow over 21 years children living in your household to have seperate memberships
Supporting community efforts....volunteer as well as neighborhood watch
We have lived in BG since 1971 and will always support the community though we do use the recreaction area when grandchildren visit.
the mildew smell is overwhelming in the building and has to be masked when doing an event. The bathrooms, although the mention
        was made that they were renovated, have a long way to go before being up to par.
never use facilities except to votehave no basis for comparison
I think one improvement that would have the biggest impact in appearance of the entire complex would be to do something about the
        stain on the roof. Not sure if a good cleaning and Zink strips would be enough, or re-shingling the front with anti-fungus shingles
        and zink strips is the answer. I am not aware if this has been discussed before or not. I wish the gold letters on the brick
        entrance walls to the community stood out better. I remember the wonderful effort to replace the old ones years ago and these
        are truly nice letters. Just wonder if there is any such thing as gold reflective paint that would stick to the letters so at night they
        would shine from headlights. Anyone work for the Department of transportation? It there was a substance they would know.
No opinion, not familiar with others
Not able to compare with others but rate BG good except restrooms have always needed improvement.
Haven't been in the facility for twenty years and so have no comment.
The updated bathrooms are great. I'd love to see the community center building look more updated (I helped paint it two summers ago,
           but the overall look is still dated). I think a new sign/logo would give the place a fresh look and be more updated (right now it
           looks very 1960-1970ish). Maybe that would help make it more attractive to new residents. I just wish more people would join the
           BGCA and make it the vibrant, fun place that so many people have told me it used to be.
Should also have "don't know" as an option.
haven't compared
Bathroom can be 'stinky' at times, especially during summer
It's the community of people and the access to the community center that makes BGCA great.
don't rent it
We are not familiar with any other community.
No experience with others
insufficient information to rate other areas

Have adult swim only if it is crowded--it helps generate sales in the snackbar.
My opinion shouldn’t count. I don’t participate enough to influence this decision.
A lane line for adult swimmers might be tricky because of slides, basketball, etc. The 15 min adult swim is more workable
In my mind, this would be the most beneficial change.
I'd like to see more lifeguards on actual pool duty rather than having 2-3 at the gate. I think one at the gate and more at the actual pool
        would make parents of younger kids feel better. Right now it sometimes seems like there isn't enough guard
        coverage--especially in the diving well.
Use the pool when grandchildren visit -approx. 3 or 4 times a year.
When our children were at home, we used the pool daily.

We have small children and use the playgroud daily during the summer and monthly during the winter.
We have used the playground in the past, but our children are older now. I think the volleyball court gets good press. We are not
        basketball players. I think more could be done to enhance the use of the tennis courts.
use the playground when grandchildren come
The Volleyball court seems to be very popular and an asset to the community bonding. My perception of the B-ball court is the goals
       are broken, but I have not noticed them lately. The kids love the Playground, though the drainage still seems an issue at times.
        I know French drains were installed at one time. The tennis courts are nice, but tennis doesn't seem as popular as it was years
        ago. Love the arch bridge.
When my children and later my grandchild were little we use these facilities a lot.
Only in the summer

I think keeping up the playground is critical for getting young/new families in the community involved and interested in BGCA.
I don't use alot of these things but my children do.
When our children were at home, we used the tennis courts and playground regularly.

          Flash light tag used to be an informal get together that was harmless for the kids. The last president stopped this event. What about a
                    monthly movie night or music for dancing and hanging out. If your children have done the Salisbury dances, this could be a
                    money maker for the community.
          Reorganize the Venture BSA Crew????
          Teen pool party with a DJ
   My     If my granddaughter is any example, you could have texting parties where they all sit around texting other people
favorite!            who are somewhere else, while ignoring anyone else around them. That all I've got.
 You Go Set up an arcade in the community center when it is not rented (pool table, ping pong, air hockey,...)
Grandma My children used to love the pool parties with pizza and music. Even teenagers love the float parties.
          allow kids to play games such as flash light tag without parent supervision!
          Movie Nights or Bands
          Movie Nights @ the clubhouse
          Ice cream social, movie night, game night
          Recommend security provided!
          Create a neighborhood basketball league and award a trophy at the end. Organize a monthly dance with music and snacks.
          Movie NightGame Night
          casino night
          Organized Basketball GamesFlash Light Tag
          Pool parties, Gator day, BBQ or luau
          Organized sports like softball/volley ball tournaments, ice cream socials
          Movie NightWii CompetitionsIpod night - to share music
          Get their input and sponsor something--maybe you need a teenage board member @ large that serves on the board
          Bag-O Tournament and Pizza Party with prizes for the winning teams
          rent rails and halfpipe for a Friday evening skate show
          Have one night a week during the summer devoted to teenagers. Similar to float night.
          movie night in the pool area, talent shows
          it would be great if something could involve the ones who aren't on swim team
          They would probably like to have their own evening parties where they can invite friends who do not belong to our pool
          You could have a pizza party at the clubhouse with specific board games they might like or a dance
          Christian Lock ins
          I think it would be a good idea... it's just all the work that is involved
          Volunteer opportunities for others in and out of the community. Battle of the Bands.
          No opinion
          I am not a senior citizen. I think they need to weigh in on whether or not they want more activities geared towards them.
           I miss the crab feast.
          Aerobics for seniors or adults.
          Need a drive to get senior citizens to support the community by at least general membership fee. Get seniors involved,
                   but not separately.
          I am a single-person household and travel a lot. I have a general membership just to support the association.
          We have enjoyed living here in Brighton green and appreciate all the board does. Thank you.
          When our children were young, we attended the 4th of july party, easter egg hunt, and labor day party every year.

I always like the swim team when my son was a member. It has a lot of positive things about it, especially physical fitness
        and friendships.
Would like info about swimming lessons (Grandkids) available
A later practice for the the teens would make it more difficult for us to get them to practice.
Might interfere with work schedule
Include all age groups on Sunday night Starts and turns
My oldest is a midget, and I think they need help with starts and turns too because that's the first age group that has to swim 50s and
        they have no idea how to do turns, etc.
The pool should be open earlier! Most people are ready to get their little ones in the pool before 12noon!
although my kids are no longer swimming (aged out) they would have loved a later practice time
