In accordance with current US CDC Covid-19 guidelines and adopted by the NYS Health Department [see, https://forward.ny.gov/reopening-reference-guide], the QATC Board has agreed that fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear face masks while in the club including while socializing in the club room. Per the guidelines, unvaccinated members should continue to abide by the club’s previous policy requiring mask-wearing in all areas of the club except when on the courts, and continue to maintain 6 feet of distance with others.
Members who bring a guest into the club will be responsible to ensure said guest is aware of and abides by the QATC policies and CDC/NYS guidelines. Thank you for your continued cooperation in navigating and following these regulations, which has allowed the Club to remain open to date without any issues!
The board will continue to closely monitor the CDC’s guidelines regarding the new Delta variant of the virus. Any changes to the current regulations affecting the use of the club will be communicated to members immediately.
If there is anyone interested in running for the QATC board in the coming election, nominations need to be presented to a board member by November 8, 2021. There will be three seats up for re-election. The three board members who’s terms are coming to an end are Nancy Montone, Bobby Mathew & Andrea McGrath.
Club members are asked to make every effort to cancel their court if they are unable to play. YourCourts.com can be used to cancel courts as well as for making reservations. Cancelling as early as possible insures your fellow members have the opportunity to pick up the unused time slots.

CELL SERVICE / WIFI
It has been brought to the attention of the board that some members would like something done about the poor cell signal at our club. The board would like to improve cell signal without incurring additional monthly charges. If you have any suggestions on the matter, please pass it on to a board member. Creative solutions are welcome.
The next meeting of the QATC Board will be held AT THE CLUB on Monday, November 8th, 2021 at 6:30pm. All members are encouraged to become more involved with the Club, and are welcome to attend.
Play Well & Be Well!
