Annual Reports for 2019

As previously advised, the Annual General Meeting has been postponed. The likely date is 25 August, but it is not possible to book a venue while current restrictions are in force.

The club's financial accounts for the year 2019 have been finalised, audited and approved by the committee.

The annual reports from the committee have also been completed.

If you would like to discuss any matters ahead of the AGM, please contact the relevant committee member/s. Other AGM documents will be provided prior to the meeting.

Waitlisted bookings - early approval of some requests

At the 2019 AGM members requested that the committee consider whether waitlist requests could be approved earlier than strict application of the booking rules would require. In particular members hoped that this could be done where there was little or no chance of a 7 day booking being made that would clash with a weekend request.

The committe looked for a way to give as much booking certainty as possible to members, balanced against preserving booking priority for members and for standard 7 and 5 day bookings.

In 2020 we will trial early approval of eligible waitlist bookings. Eligible waitlist requests will be approved from 1 June, where eligible means

  • only members, spouse and their children, and
  • the preceding midweek is full, and
  • the booking is paid for immediately on request from the booking officer. 

If you use the wailtlist system, please let us know at the end of the season whether this has been helpful.

Summer Cleaning

Unfortunately sometimes our summer visitors do not pay sufficient attention to cleaning.

While Andrew & Myra clean meticulously in ski season, managers are not required to clean in summer. We rely on members and guests to leave the lodge in a clean and tidy condition.

The committee has decided to emphasise the need to clean thorougthly and to introduce a fee if this has been negleected.

So to clear what is expected in "green season":

  • You must clean your room and ensuite before departure.
  • You must also cooperate with other guests to clean the kitchen and all common areas used.
  • Cleaning must be to at least the standard that you would hope for when coming into accommodation.
  • Cleaning kits with cloths and chemicals should be collected from the laundry and returned there later.
  • Failure to adequately clean may result in a cleaning fee of up to $200 per room.

 (This does not apply to Peaks Challenge weekend, when cleaning services are provided by the manager)

Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 7pm Tuesday 26 May at Royal Brighton Yacht Club.

The committee will monitor the advice of health authorities and other government bodies on holding such meetings. Don't be surprised if arrangements change.

Given the uncertainty with Covid-19, we are not seeking any more helpers at this stage. Depending on the circumstances, official and personal, closer to the time, the work party may be reduced in scope or cancelled.

Lodge No Smoking rule

The club has a long standing policy of no smoking indoors, although smoking has been permitted on the balcony outside the dining room. The committee has received a number of complaints about smoking on the balcony and requests to no longer allow it. After due consideration, the committee decided that it was appropriate to extend the smoking ban to all areas of the lodge, effective immediately.
