COVID-19 UPDATE FOR OUR MEMBERS

Updated August 26th, 2021

This document represents the current rules in effect at the club.  This document will be updated as restrictions change by the Public Health Authorities.

Members shall always comply with all Public Health directives. For clarity, when at tables, on the deck, people sitting together must be from the same household unless all people at the table are fully immunized (2 shots+14 days).  When inside, masks must be worn unless eating or drinking, and all must be fully immunized.

The following rules have been put in place to protect our members from any health risks at this time and to ensure that the club is compliant with Public Health Orders. 

1. All members over the age of 12 are expected to provide proof of vaccination status in order to access the club, beyond simply using the washrooms, with a mask.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Members will be required to show their proof of vaccination at the door. Racers in club sponsored pursuit, long distance and Wednesday Night Races may be asked to show proof of vaccination if requested.

4. All members are required to read this directive. note: visitors are now allowed but members are responsible to ensure their adherence to these requirements.

5. All of our facilities are now available for use.  Occupancy restrictions will be applicable in each space.  Overall, we need to all work together to limit occupancy to 50% capacity in each room   i.e. washroom (max 3), dining room (max 30), kitchen (max 6), spinnaker lounge (max 20), deck (Max 30)

6. All members need to make a reasonable effort to clean and disinfect all surfaces they have been in contact with, prior to departing an area.

We are a club, we care deeply about one another, and our community.  Let's do all we can to finish the season off responsibly and safely.
