Sun City softball players want a new scoreboard and they want to partner with Recreation Centers of Sun City officials to get it.
Players presented their proposed needs to the board during its Sept. 12 member/director exchange meeting. Board members said they would consider the request, although Jim Wellman, RCSC assistant general manager, said an official request for the budgeting process was not on record.
“We have put in a budget request for this for several years,” said Arnie Kvarnberg, softball club president.
The club’s existing scoreboard, at the softball fields west of the Sun Bowl, 10220 N. 107th Ave., is not working properly and a new $900 controller has not solved the problem, he explained.
In addition to the scoreboard, softball players want a new building that includes accommodations for a kitchen and storage space for uniforms and equipment.
“We have no sink or hot water in our building,” Mr. Kvarnberg said.
He added other locations where Sun City teams play, such as Sun City Grand and Sun City West, have better facilities.
Sun City resident Ronnie Guest also suggested a land line telephone be installed at the softball fields or the nearby Sun Bowl.
“It is important to have a land line there,” he said.
RCSC board member Carol Lawry said all clubs that want land line phones in their club area pay for the installation and monthly cost of a phone.
