RASCAL and Covid-19 - Summer booking arrangements

As the NSW Covid-19 response evolves, the Club has sought to keep the Lodge open for as long as possible in line with the Covid-19 requirements.  The committee is currently working to move back to casual bookings and are targeting reopening for casual bookings on the 14th of January, this may be delayed pending the NSW Governments response to the current Sydney COVID outbreak.  As more information becomes available we will provide updates as we can.

In the interim, we will continue to allow block bookings up to the end of March, these bookings will still be made only by the Office Manager and she will arrange for professional cleaning following each stay. The cost is $400 per night, for a minimum of three nights.

 A Waiver of Liability for all Lodge users is here.

We have a COVID-19 management plan in place to support use of the lodge and it is available here. This plan draws on the guidelines around Holiday Homes and Holiday Rentals.

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation and while everyone is working to return to normal as quickly as possible there are many situations which are outside of our control. The focus of the committee has been to allow our members and their guests to be able to use the lodge and enjoy some time in the Jindabyne area without exposing the club, its officers, our members and their guests, or the broader community to unnecessary risk. While COVID-19 remains under control in NSW and the Snowy Mountain region, this should be able to occur under the regime that we have proposed, however should this be taken out of our hands by a tightening of the control measures by the NSW Government we will have to perform a further review.

Finally - thank you all for your patience. We are swimming in uncharted waters at the moment. It would be fair to say that the standard RASCAL operating model simply could not support safe operation of the lodge under the current conditions. We will continue to work to lift restrictions as we can and will keep you all up to date as we can improve your access to the lodge and return to a more normal operating model.

Please contact the our Office Manager (Angela Cornell) or the President (Colin McLean - 0414 146448) if you have any questions about this.
