Washrooms - Springbrook Shack
We know there has been some inquiries / concerns about washroom facilities not being available at 'The Shack' up until this point. In past years we have been able to make the washrooms available for our members playing at Springbrook, with a group of volunteers being responsible for keeping them tidy throughout the season...
The Springbrook Shack is actually 'owned/insured' by the league, and that means that all necessary repairs and upkeep are the sole responsibility of the OHMBA (the Town simply comes to turn the water on/off at the beginning and end of the season).
With the new cleaning protocols due to Covid-19, combined with the fact this facility sat dormant for the 2021 season (and is in need of some significant maintenance), we unfortunately have not been able to open the washrooms to our members. Your OHMBA Executive has taken an action to budget for some maintenance and possible renovations for this facility in the offseason, including potentially having a cleaning service in place for the 2022 season if we cannot find a group of volunteers to take care of it. We may also look to see if we can arrange day-to-day maintenance with Town Operations.
As an alternative, we have placed 2 portable toilets at the shack today that will remain in place until the end of the house league season. We apologize for any inconvenience that the lack of facilities may have caused up until this time, and while the use of portable toilets may not be ideal, it ensures our members have a place to go if they need to go. No more having to run to a nearby store or restaurant.
Your OHMBA Executive.
