I guess AAA is well worth it – if you have, that is

Must have been an “away game”
A caller from Avalon Bay on Founders Way reported to police that an unauthorized number of players were using the private basketball court who were neither residents nor guests and were causing a disturbance – and that no one had a security card for access to the facility.

The property manager stated that he had no problem if there were more non-residents on the court as long as the games remained peaceful and no one was causing any damage. The manager provided the police with access cards.
