As per previous communications last weekend and earlier this week, we have a severely limited capacity in the bar for the forthcoming Autumn Internationals, starting with Japan this weekend.
We’d like to remind all members that access to the bar for all three games will be on a ticketed basis ONLY with no exceptions. We will do the draw for New Zealand this coming Monday. Successful members will then be contacted and issued ticket(s) and they must be picked up from the office in advance of the match day so we can scan your Covid cert if required and speed up the access process for you on the day. Only vaccinated persons will be permitted in the clubhouse. Hired security will be managing the entry process and Elayne or Michael will not be able to override this system.
As an alternative for you, we have an extensive outdoor service plan in place. We have rented a 1,200 square foot open walled (50%) marquee in the back car park with a fully operational bar sponsored very generously by Heineken. Along with some other Heineken gazebos, the awnings alongside the gym, outside furniture, a hot food station and plenty of pod tables, we can accommodate another 350 people in this outside space and many more if it doesn’t rain. The LVA have advised that Covid cert checking is not required for persons availing of these areas nor trace and trace or mask wearing, but all other common practice measures are. Wash your hands, use the sanitizers, cough/sneeze into your elbow and keep your distance. We encourage people not to stay if they are not comfortable in the environment.
We thank those who applied for tickets and we will be in touch shortly to those successful for Japan to communicate the method of ticket distribution.
