IMPORTANT REMINDER: PIN USAGE

We are asking members for a high degree of compliance to the rules for PIN usage. We cannot have multiple members entering the Club as a group with just one PIN/fob/wristband. Every member entering the Club must use the key pad for access and must see the GREEN LIGHT GO ON to ensure we have captured your identity and time of entry. We will be using video footage of gates to check on compliance. If tailgating occurs the Club will have to revert to limited hours of access as, legally, we won’t be able to fulfil the government requirements for contact tracing. ITS ALL UP TO YOU!!

Thanks
