ART CLUB

Welcome to Art Club! We are a mixed group of Roadhaven residents that enjoy painting, sketching, and other forms of art.

Some of us are novice artists and some are pretty talented! Some of us take classes from an experienced teacher and some of us just like to sit down and create on our own.

It’s relaxing and fun to chat and laugh while we work on our projects!

Anyone residing in Roadhaven can join the Art Club. If we are doing a workshop, the teacher usually brings the supplies, otherwise most members supply their own. We can easily advise what supplies you want to start with. We do have some donated paints and brushes that you can use until you decide what medium you want to use. We are located behind the indoor hot tub, next to the Rec Hall.

The seasonal charge is $20. Membership forms are available in the Rec Hall on the wall near the bathrooms, outside the activity office. We also have forms in the art room. You can drop the form off to the art room or drop your envelope and money/check to #1389 in the inner park mail. Once paid we will provide the lock combination for entering.

Our annual Paint Party is Feb. 2 from 5:30-9:00.

BYOB and bring an appetizer to share (if you choose). Art club supplies everything else! $25-tickets at Activity office.


Also our Art Show is back!!! Saturday March 4 in the Rec Hall. Come see the fabulous artwork we’ve created. We hold a raffle 3/$5.00 or $2 and you can win original artwork donated by our talented RH artists! Some art is for sale also. Raffle tickets available at the art room or from art members.

Our monthly meetings will be the first Wednesday of the month at 1:00 pm in the Art Room.

BILLIARDS CLUB

The Roadhaven Billiards club has the nicest room in the valley. Over the summer 0f 2022 the room has been renovated with many improvements. We have 10 very well-maintained pool tables that are kept in the finest condition. The Billiard Club uses the membership fees and other fundraising efforts to regularly replace the cushions and the cloth on the pool tables, keeping these tables in peak performance.

The 2021 season saw a lot of exciting changes in the club with our membership growing to well over 100 members. We have had many people join who haven’t played before. With our free lessons for new members every Monday and Thursday at 1:00 p.m. they are learning the game and having a lot of fun at the same time. With the new season rapidly approaching we are anticipating a lot of excitement for the improvements in the room.

Word of mouth is spreading rapidly and our membership is growing. The members meet every day at 1:00 p.m. for a friendly competition and Monday and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Our new Wednesday event for couples at 7:00 p.m. has been a great success. Whether you’ve just started or been playing for years, it’s a lot of fun.

Who can use the Billiard Room?

With 10 tables in the room there are 4 tables along the window – on the wall facing the pool area that are for use by all residents of Roadhaven. The other 6 tables that are separately identified are for use by members of the Billiard Club.

When can we use the tables to play?

The room is open, and the tables are available to use every day until 10 p.m.

I have never played so why would I join the club?

Every member of the Billiard club has free lessons available. We have lessons on Monday and Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Also Wed evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The best part is that new players play with people of their own skill level and as a result they are having a lot of fun and learning fast.

Do I have to play in competition, or can I play for fun?

We have something for every member. Roadhaven billiard members play in 3 different leagues that offer competition for those that are interested. We also have open play every day at 1:00 p.m. There is no commitment required. If you want to play just show up. If you are busy that’s ok as well. The emphasis for every member is fun.

  • $20 each or $30 for a couple.

There are no fundraisers scheduled at the moment.

Events:

MIXED PLAY EVERY WED. AT 7:00 P.M. Both MEN AND WOMEN members are welcome. The only thing on the menu is FUN.

Free Lessons for Members every Monday and Thursday at 1:00 p.m.

For those new to our club, we are located in the same building as Silversmith which is across the courtyard from the Woodworking Shop. Come check us out! No experience is needed to join our club.

Membership is open to all Roadhaven residents. A membership must be purchased in order to use our facilities. Monitors are available to help you in our shop with your project(s) and also to answer any questions you may have. A monitor is on duty whenever the club is open.

FITNESS CLUB

The Fitness Club is one of Roadhaven’s largest clubs, with membership varying from 350 to 450 members each year. 

The Fitness Club has been established in Roadhaven for more than twenty years, starting in the former Golf shop, expanding in that location, and moving to the new location adjacent to Phase 1 pool in the Fall of 2022. Lack of space has always limited the ability of the club to expand, although it has consistently been one of the bigger clubs in Roadhaven, in terms of membership. The new location allows good access to the strength and stretching equipment in the South portion of the facility and ample space for the aerobic and floor exercise space in the North portion. There should be opportunity for appropriate activities for all levels of physical fitness.

The Fitness Center is open daily from 5 AM to 10 PM

All Roadhaven residents are encouraged to participate. Just dress appropriately for the level of exertion you expect to put forward.

We have shoe benches at each entrance, should you wish to use other than street shoes in your workout.

Why exercise?  Why bother?  What are the benefits? Well, on a search of the internet, I’ve found out the following:

  • Exercising improves cognitive function and improves brain plasticity, meaning, your brain (read that, you) will be able to function a little better than if you did nothing at all.
  • Stretching and flexibility exercises help to prevent injuries, help to reduce muscular pain and improve our posture, balance, mobility and athletic performance. In- park athletes who participate in sports such as bocci ball, shuffleboard, golf or pickleball, for instance, should take note.
  • By exercising, our bodies allocate energy to processes that slows the body’s gradual physical deterioration and guards us against chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and some cancers. 15-20 minutes a day is all we need.   We don’t need to work up a sweat, we just need to do something.
  • Physical activity also causes the release of exercise-related antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, and enhances blood flow, like to the brain. See the first point.
  • The body’s response to exercising is to build back stronger, repairing muscle fibers, repairing cartilage damage and healing microfractures. The cellular and DNA repair processes lower the risk of obesity, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and depression.
 
 

The fees charged for membership go to the operating of the facility and the purchase and maintenance of the equipment.


Fitness Club year goes from July 1 to June 30th and the fee is $25 per person, with a price break for couples at $40. We also have a guest rate of $5 per person that is good for two weeks.
Membership application forms are available adjacent to each entrance to the facility (as well as on the website), along with a supply of envelopes. Just fill in the form, enclose the fee indicated, and mail in the in-park mail. One of our volunteers will send you a badge sticker by return mail, along with your member number.


We ask you to sign in and out with your member number on the clip board adjacent to whichever entrance you use. Please use the gym as soon as you are able – do not wait for your member number – just write “applied” in the space for the number.

Membership Application – Fitness Club

We hold orientation training for those who need an introduction to the Fitness Center and the equipment. These have been held for the season, in December and January and may be scheduled for the next season, depending on demand, in the Fall of 2023. 20 Jan 23

Fitness club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 4 PM in the Dakota room, November through March. All members and prospective members are welcome to attend.

Maintenance Night: The gym will be closed for equipment maintenance on Thursday February 16th at 7 PM. This usually only takes an hour or so. Consider showing up to volunteer an hour of your time.

In response to multiple requests, we now have a rowing machine for the Fitness Center. It is located in the aerobic (North) room, at the West end of the elliptical row.

Group Exercises :
– Monday January 16th at 1 PM – A low-impact aerobic Zumba Gold session hosted by Ruth
-Tuesday January 17th at 8:30 AM – a moderate cardio walking program hosted by Shelley
– Wednesday January 18th at 1 PM – a YMCA style low-impact program hosted by Linda.

All sessions are in the open area of the Fitness Center, adjacent to the North door. The number of participants will be limited by the space, so come early. This is open to all, including non-members of the Fitness Club (if you choose to continue to participate, you will be expected to join). All participants are asked to sign in and sign out, member or not.
Current plan is to continue these on a weekly basis (one hour sessions) but watch here for any changes.

There is lots of information on the hiking board about this trip. It is a wonderland for hiking! Campers can use tents, sleep in a vehicle, or use an RV.

Available sites have been almost entirely reserved for the dates we are going, but I am able to do some accommodating for people who still want to join in on this fun trip. Lots of room is still available for tenters or in-vehicle sleepers as I can double up on some sites. Please let me know ASAP if you are wanting to go.

Attention All Hikers!

The success of the club depends entirely on having volunteer hike leaders. Unfortunately, due to attrition (age, moving away, etc.), we are VERY short of hike leaders. If anyone can volunteer to lead any hikes – even just a few spread out from now until March – please let me know. I am wanting to put together a hiking schedule and need YOU!

Thank you,

KARAOKE CLUB

If there is one thing you can take away from singing karaoke, it’s that it’s very fun. Whether you choose to sing or not, chances are you will enjoy the singers. If you don’t want to sing, you can line dance or slow dance to some of the songs that are being sung or just come and listen.

To learn more about the Karaoke Club come to the Rec Center on Tuesday afternoons from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. You can see what our club is all about and maybe decide to join our club. New singers are welcome to stop in.

Karaoke is a small club that promotes singing in the Roadhaven Resort. We meet every Tuesday in the Rec Hall from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.. We encourage people to come and see how we use the TV screens with the lyrics and background music. Our system is awesome and the song library contains at least 70,000 songs done by several different artists. We welcome singers, listeners, dancers!
 
Can anyone sing? How does it work?
 
All are encouraged to sing.
There is no judgment, only encouragement. If you want others who may know your song will sing along as encouragement and support. Our MC, Gene, will sing along and provide sound support and suggestions.

CLICK HERE FOR SCHEDULE

The Pickleball Club has several goals for the year which are focused on doing things outside of regularly scheduled member playtimes. The goal is to fill the day with afternoon and/ or evening events. If you want to follow the Club, please access it’s Facebook page.


One of the afternoon events that we have scheduled is round robin tournaments. These are informal tournaments which essentially allow players of similar ratings to play together and record the scores.


Another event is a ladder league. The ladder league allows players of different ratings to play together. In essence, winners advance up the ladder and non-winners advance down the ladder with the effect that players of similar skills end up playing together. The ladder leagues are scheduled to be on Mondays in the afternoon and each player will play 4 games.


The Club also added a winter tournament. For this tournament there are 4 teams of 10 players each. A captain is assigned for each team to coordinate players of different skill levels together as partners for the duration of the tournament. The tournament runs for 2 days and is a lot of fun. The winning team will receive a prize to share with the team members.
The members’ tournament based on skill ratings will be held in mid-February. This will include referees and line judges, so it is more formal than the round robin, ladder or January tournaments.


The Club is always open to new players and offers beginner lessons each week. Come check us out!

TENNIS CLUB

The Roadhaven Tennis Club has provided league play with other Arizona Parks for the past 30 years. The club has taught thousands of retired seniors how to play or re-learn to play doubles tennis.

The tennis club attracts active residents who want to achieve an active and social lifestyle. The club also attracts social members who have heard that the Tennis Club has the best parties. The club encourages beginners.

Whether a beginner or a seasoned player, bring a tennis racquet with some enthusiasm and join us in this great game. It’s not only fun but it keeps you in shape, whatever your age or become a social member and enjoy your many new friends.

Beginner’s lessons are available for all ages and we range from 55 to nearly 90. This exemplifies the variation in talents, and new people are continually bringing fresh talent and fresh enthusiasm. If they have no interest in tennis or are physically incapable of play, they can be a social member allowing participation in all club activities except those of leadership.

Aside from the many privately arranged games played within Roadhaven, there are organized competitive team matches and tournaments with other park teams as part of the East Valley Senior Tennis League (EVSTL). Each league team has its own Captain. League play includes one match and one practice session a week.

There are 6 proficiency levels: 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0. All teams at each level have a Captain that arranges the weekly competition with other resorts. Be assured, every level, including the lowest, has its joy and satisfaction, although because of the number of players on each team at each level, there is no guarantee that you will play league every week. Captains try to play as many people as possible each week, but it depends upon how many teams the opposition sends too.

 

 

Club Fees

$40.00/person for a “Full” tennis membership. $10.00/person for an “Associate” membership.

The purpose of the Time Out organization is to relieve residents of Roadhaven who are giving care to a spouse or relative that is either terminally ill or undergoing temporary health problems. The “Time Out” group will relieve the caregivers who either need to run errands, purchase groceries, pick up prescriptions, or just get away for a few hours. Our primary goal is to provide support to the caregiver and to spend the necessary time with his or her spouse, friend, or relative so that the caregiver can get some personal time away from his or her duties as the primary caregiver. If interested in volunteering some time (usually 2-hour sessions) as a Time Out volunteer, or if you have any questions about Time Out, please call Bill or Jo Kramer unit 1158. Also, anyone who could use our services, please contact us.

Benefits:


To enhance your experience at Roadhaven by creating opportunities for social interaction with other residents with similar interests. Having people with similar interests on your roster will assist in
communication with members by email or through information you can have added to the website on a page dedicated to the Club. Clubs may also want to have speakers or instructors on topics of interest to benefit club members.


As a Club, you can raise money for a specific project your group would like to see to enhance the Resort experience. Clubs may apply to the Rec Council for funding support for a project that will enhance
Roadhaven. Fundraising is available either by 50/50 drawings or an event that can be shared with the entire Resort.


As a Club, the Roadhaven Accounting Office will process all your income and expense transactions and provide a set of monthly financial reports to help keep track of your club fund balance. This is a valuable service for your officers and treasurer.
