We have had to implement a new way of accessing the site. Previously, the gate was opened 15 minutes prior to, and closed 15 minutes after, each session start time.
From Saturday morning, the 26th September, the new system will come into operation:
Members arriving on that session, and all subsequent sessions, will see a new lock fitted to the gate. This will have been fitted by the duty marshal when he arrived at the site. Members will have the code for this lock – it is the same one you got when you renewed your membership, or obtained full membership this year for our newer members. Look on your membership card or receipt if you can’t remember, and failing that, ring John Bennett, Rod Hornett or Paul Smart for a reminder.
In other words, during a session, the entry/exit method will be identical to pre-covid days, which means you let yourself in and CLOSE THE GATE behind you, every time.
So, you can arrive and leave at any time during a session without needing a marshal to let you in/out.
HOWEVER, please bear in mind you will still need to book. Turning up and letting yourself in without booking will result in you being asked to leave. Failure to comply will result in a suspension or ban from the club.
Naturally, you will still need to check in with the marshal(s) as you do now.
Hopefully, this will make things a little easier for you all, giving you the flexibility to arrive and depart as you please.
