2.  Bed Rates
              SEE ABOVE

3.  If staying overnight or for longer periods, please ensure when you leave the lodge that you clean ALL food items from fridges, turn them off and leave them propped open. Also close all windows, lock external doors and turn off all appliances.

4.  Finally --  two fire safety reminders
(i)  All day visitors must notify the Booking Officer if you intend to visit the lodge.  All visitors (day and overnight) must also sign the visitor register (on the kitchen bench)

(ii)  The sliding doors in the TV room are a designated fire exit.  A sign has been up for the past few years that states this and asks that it not be blocked.  If you move the lounge chairs please, when you leave the room, put them back so that this exit is not blocked.

Annual Subscription

Thank you to members who have already paid, receipts and reminders for those who have not paid will be sent soon.

Some things to note about membership subscriptions:  

1.  Annual subscriptions become due immediately after the AGM.  An invoice is sent by November 1
2.  You must be financial before you can use the lodge or make a booking (for either the summer following the AGM or the next winter season).  
3. To save time chasing up unpaid subs we do prefer prompt payments however, if  you do not want to use the lodge or book accommodation over the summer period, to ensure continuation of your membership, your must pay by the end of the club financial year, 30 September.

If you use an automatic payment to the club for your fees could you please alter this to the end of the first week in November as earlier payments have caused difficulties for the Treasurer due to the subscriptions changing at the AGM.  This creates the need to follow up for the extra amounts.
