Rascal welcomes new members

Rascal is a club for sharing year round enjoyment of the Snowy Mountains with families and friends in a communally based environment. We welcome new members.

Full adult membership


Full adult members can book the Lodge for themselves and guests at any time of the year. Full adult members are over the age of 18 years as at 1 January this year.

Summer adult membership


Summer adult members have full membership status for any time of the year except July and August and can book the Lodge for themselves and guests outside of July and August. Summer members pay a significantly reduced joining fee and a slightly reduced annual subscription compared to Full members.

Junior membership


Junior membership is open to people who are under 18 at 1 January this year and who are sponsored by a parent or guardian who is currently Financial and is a Full Adult or Summer Adult Member. Junior members sponsored by a Summer Adult member have their membership limited to all months of the year except for July and August. Junior members can upgrade to Adult membership at reduced rates.

Applications


Membership applications must be considered at a Committee meeting, which are normally held monthly. If an application is accepted and there is a vacancy, an offer of membership is made. Joining and annual membership fees are payable within three weeks of the letter of offer being sent, otherwise the application lapses.

If a full adult member resides at the residence then other adults at that same residence can join at fifty percent of the rate of the first full member at that residence.

With regard to partner or family memberships; there is no particular requirement for partners or family members to join in their own right, although this is encouraged. Memberships are not transferable - a non-member partner or family member is not permitted to use the Lodge independently of a member.

If you wish to proceed with an application, please complete a membership application form and post back to us. Membership applications are required to be proposed and seconded by current members. If you do not have a proposer and a seconder, please accompany your application with a brief supporting statement and the names of two referees. Your statement should touch on your interest in using the Lodge, how you came to hear of RASCAL, and any other information you regard as relevant to the consideration of your application.

Bookings Accommodation is normally booked per night using the web based booking system. Rascal does not room-share - the only people in your rooms are those in your booking. Rascal has two bunk and four bunk rooms and one refurbished room with a Queen sized bed (displayed in image).

Bookings of 5 or more people receive a 20% discount on the cost of accommodation if the booking is made for the period outside of July and August.

Members may take two non-members to the Lodge at any time of the year. Members may take an even larger number of non-members to the Lodge: at the discretion of the Office Manager; or if the booking is made in the week prior to the first night of the booking.

On designated weekends and/or most non-winter midweek days, members may make a “Block Booking”, which books the entire lodge for the member's exclusive use and at a rate that is significantly cheaper than the individual rooms can be booked.

All bookings are made by Members using the Club’s web site or by the Office Manager if requested to do so by the Member.

Rascal usually issues vouchers which can be used to offset the cost of accommodation. The vouchers are time limited and are generally issued for early renewal, for working bee attendance and in lieu of accommodation refunds (eg when a booking is cancelled).

Cancellation fees apply to all bookings or parts of bookings that are cancelled. Cancellation fees are described here.

Joining and rejoin fees are described here.
