In the interest of our finances and environmental issues, showers should be restricted to a reasonable length. Do not waste water.

The security code to the premises must not be passed on to a non-member. Many members have a concern for safety; particularly some of our lady members and these devices have been installed for that express reason.

Carry your membership badge at all times – you may be asked to produce it.
