Let's face it - clubs operate better when everyone is on the same page and there are no ambiguities. So here are our rules, terms and conditions.

  • Bunkrooms are allocated by the Bookings Officer.  To avoid any midnight confusion please stick to the bunkroom that you have booked.

  • Bookings will only be accepted from Senior Members who have paid their annual subs.  

  • No member may stay at the lodge without a confirmed booking.  Booking confirmation constitutes authority to stay at the lodge.

  • There will be a Trip leader appointed for every stay - Their role is to ensure that duties such as restocking and cleaning are completed, and have responsibility for everyone at the lodge.  Please apply some common sense and work with your Trip Leader.

  • If you don't know what is expected of you, please ask.

  • For safety reasons, at least 2 Adults (one of whom must be a Senior Member) must be present at the lodge overnight throughout the period of your booking.

  • Provisional members must have at least 1 Senior Member present throughout their booking.  

Weekend bookings:

  • This year we are trialling the removal of this rule.  For the 2020 season there are no weekend booking restrictions.

Guest bookings: 

  • Members have priority when booking over unconfirmed bookings for guests (non-members) up until 2 weeks before arrival

  • To allow a degree of forward planning Guests will be confirmed 2 weeks prior to the booking if there are bunks available.

  • Younger aged children considered for whole lodge bookings or in consultation of others staying at the lodge.
