495, nice to see you attempting to contribute to the debate, albeit without actually explaining your position. What part of the discussion do you have trouble comprehending?
It's very simple.
BSA secure courts at an annual rate. They pay $X/yr regardless of use. They need to recover that cost plus a bit over the duration of the year. They recover those costs by hiring out the stadiums for games, trainings and events. Although they have secured the stadiums at a good rate, hey need to hire out the stadiums at commercial rates to make the deal worthwhile. This includes game nights as well.
Therefore, knowing the actual cost of the court hire, knowing the commercial rate, BSA then need to determine a minimum number of hours they need to charge that stadium out over the duration of the year. With court hire, it is unrealistic to assume a 100% charge out rate of the available courts. When preparing the operating budget for a court or stadium, BSA need to allow for a % of downtime in the budget.
495, I know you are trying to defend a position, but either you have not been involved in financial aspects of a business, or are playing dumb. Consider a electrician. You pay say $80/hr for a electrician, but that doesn't mean they get $166,000/yr as they can't charge out 100% of their time. At best they charge out say 75% of their time meaning they bring in around $125,000/yr and by the time you take out the overheads, they probably get paid $60K. If you need a 100% charge out to recover costs, then you are coin g it wrong.
495, consider your own working position. How does you employer recoup the cost of employing you? Those days you are on AL, PH, SL, LSL and not bringing in any revenue need to be accounted for in the OPEX budget. Those days you are spent in training or other administrative tasks need to be considered.
To claim BSA lose money on reschedules is bad accounting. I reinforce that it is not money that BSA lose, it is the opportunity to make money.
