IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE:
As you are no doubt aware on 3rd December 2021 the Government is implementing the New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light System).
At the Club’s Committee meeting last night, 23rd November, it was agreed that from 3rd December anyone 12 years and over wanting to enter the Club must be fully vaccinated and in possession of their vaccine passport/QR Code. The Club will have either their QR code ready to scan or do a physical check of members and visitors passports/QR Codes in the foyer before people enter the Club’s Bar and Cafe.
With regard tournaments, the Committee agreed the Club has no control over who can and can’t fish a tournament. That is a decision for the skipper of the boat to make. With regard the weigh station. The Committee believe that with social distancing, wearing masks while completing catch cards/weighing fish and using the contact tracer App, the weigh masters will be able to carry out their duties similar to what they do now.
We will keep you updated on any changes to the above when this Protection Framework gets underway from 3rd December.
