Flying Fifteen Update

Greg and Hector (Spot the difference) bought their “A” game for Opening Day and won both races by healthy margins and in near perfect conditions. After an average start and hitting a mark, Nic and Janet (Ineffable) spent some time with the common people for a lap or two and then recorded a second and a third. Consistency honours went to Greg and Leanne (Enuff Rope) in the first race and Liilo and Peter (Swifft) in the second race. Full results on the SoPYC website as usual.
As the new owner of Eagle Eye, we welcome Terry Newby to our fleet. Terry will be well known to the Saturday fleet being the sailing captain and continues to prove the theory that one day of sailing per weekend is not enough.
Back to our earlier time slot for racing next Sunday.

Member and Non-Member

Food & Beverage Pricing

At the AGM on 5th September, Members were asked to provide an indication of their views about the introduction of a Member and Non Member food and beverage pricing scheme. The feedback was overwhelmingly in favour of the proposal to introduce Member and Non Member pricing.

The new pricing scheme is in place and like all new pricing changes there have been hiccups with the introduction which we trust have been sorted out. If you are still experiencing issues please address the issues to the Duty Manager, Assistant Food and Beverage Manager or the Food and Beverage Manager. The General Manager and Vice Commodore are also reference points should there be an issue that Members need to have dealt with.

To help Members understand the application of the changes and how the discount is applied an explanation is set out below.
  • Beverage and dining prices will rise by 10% from Monday 1st October, 2018. Function pricing will be priced as per the current packages on offer.
  • Members will automatically have a 10% discount applied to their purchases when they use their FOB key (member key) at the point of sale. (Grand Sponsors will therefore have a 20% discount).
It is important to note that the price paid by Members before the introduction of the 10% price increase will be the same as the member pricing prior to the change. For example, if a glass of beer is $4.40 on 30th September, it will move to $4.84 on 1st October. Once the discount is applied back to a Member, the price for the beer will be $4.40 so no practical change in the cost unless you are not eligible to receive the discount.
  • Members without their FOB keys must present their Membership Card at the time of the transaction to receive the discount.
  • The discount will not be applicable without either the FOB key or your Membership Card (which should be carried by Members at all times).
  • Any person unable to demonstrate they are bona fide members of the Club will be obliged to pay the new Non Member prices for any purchases they make at the Club.
